New Trailer for Disney's ALADDIN Shows Will Smith in All His Blue Genie Glory
Disney has released a new teaser trailer for director Guy Ritchie’s live-action Aladdin, and the trailer gives us our first look at Will Smith as the legendary blue genie. It’ll be interesting to see how fans react to the design of the character and how Smith brings him to life in his own way. They didn’t want to mimic Robin Williams, so this is a very different version of the character that, as you’ll see, is 100% Will Smith’s personality and style.
The teaser mostly focuses on Aladdin being brought to the Cave of Wonders to retrieve the lamp for Jafar. It features some familiar music and few other quick shots teasing aspects of the film. Here’s the synopsis:
Aladdin is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future. Directed by Guy Ritchie, who brings his singular flair for fast-paced, visceral action to the fictitious port city of Agrabah, the film is written by John August and Ritchie based on Disney’s Aladdin.
Aladdin also stars Mena Massoud as the charming scoundrel Aladdin; Naomi Scott as Jasmine, the beautiful, self-determined princess; Marwan Kenzari as Jafar, the powerful sorcerer; Navid Negahban as the Sultan concerned with his daughter’s future; Nasim Pedrad as Dalia, Princess Jasmine’s free-spirited best friend and confidante; Billy Magnussen as the handsome and arrogant suitor Prince Anders; and Numan Acar as Hakim, Jafar’s right-hand man and captain of the palace guards.
The movie will be released on May 24th, 2019.
