Two New Promo Spots for Disney's ALADDIN Offer More New Footage
Two new promo spots have been released for Disney’s upcoming live-action adaptation of Aladdin, and they offer a bit of new footage. Some of that footage shows a brief look at Jafar as he seems to be wielding the powerful magic of the Genie.
While the Guy Ritchie-directed film looks like a live-action shot-for-shot remake of the original animated film, most of the discussion among fans involves Will Smith as Genie. Some people like his take on the character while others don’t. One thing is for sure, he’s bringing his style to the character, and while it might not be as good as what Robin Williams did, it will still probably entertain fans.
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, 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. Both promo spots are in the one embedded video below.
