Aladdin trailer: Watch Will Smith as a Genie

March 13th, 2019 | by vBollywood Author

The first official trailer of Disney’s live action Aladdin is released. While Will Smith’s Genie did not appeal to the audience in the introductory teaser, this trailer too will not help him in scoring any brownie points with the audience.

The best part about the trailer is the music as the makers have retained some original tunes from the 1992 animated version.

In the promo, we get to see how Jafar convinces Aladdin to go inside the cave to fetch the lamp. His love story with the princess blossoms as Genie assists him in his plans. Robin Williams had famously voiced Genie in the 1992 animated version.

Alongside Will Smith’s Genie, the film also stars Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine and Marwan Kenzari as Jafar. Director Guy Ritchie has re-created Agrabah in the real world for this live-action experience but it is yet to be seen if the audience finds his casting choices interesting.

Apart from Aladdin, Disney will also release the live-action version of Dumbo and The Lion King.

Aladdin releases on May 24.
