Disney has released the first proper trailer for the upcoming live-action Aladdin remake starring Will Smith, Mena Massoud, and Naomi Scott. They had a short teaser and multiple stills from the movie released earlier, but this is the first time a proper trailer has been released by them.
Disney’s Aladdin is a remake of the animated original from Walt Disney Studio. It is based on the Arabian folktale of one thousand and one nights. This remake will be directed by Guy Ritchie.
The movie faced some controversy recently after Will Smith was revealed to be the genie. First still from the movie showed him in his human form while the most recent teaser had bad CGI and made him look terrible. This new full trailer is much better and shows that Disney hasn’t forgotten what made the original animated movie so great.
The official story description was also shared along with this first trailer for the movie. Have a look at the story synopsis.
A thrilling and vibrant live-action adaptation of Disney’s animated classic, “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.
