Disney’s Live-Action ‘Aladdin’ Gets New Full Length Trailer
Disney has released a new full-length trailer for their upcoming live-action version of ‘Aladdin’, which lands in UK cinemas on Friday, 24th May 2019.
The live-action adaptation of Disney’s animated classic tells the story of the charming street rat Aladdin (Mena Massoud), the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott) and the Genie (Will Smith) who may be the key to their future.
Along with some more shots of Smith’s blue Genie, which initially got… shall we say, a “mixed” reaction when it was first revealed… Smith’s Genie I think comes across much better this time around. The trailer also includes a few little snippets of songs such as ‘Friend Like Me’ and ‘A Whole New World’, and a magic carpet sequence.
Directed by Guy Ritchie, who brings his flair for fast-paced, visceral action to the fictitious port city of Agrabah, ‘Aladdin’ is written by John August and Ritchie based on Disney’s original animated feature.
The film also stars Marwan Kenzari as Jafar, Navid Negahban as the Sultan, Nasim Pedrad as Dalia and Billy Magnussen as Prince Anders.
‘Aladdin’ is produced by Dan Lin, p.g.a., and Jonathan Eirich, p.g.a., with Kevin De La Noy and Marc Platt serving as executive producers. Eight-time Academy Award®-winning composer Alan Menken provides the score, which includes new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Oscar-winning lyricists Howard Ashman and Tim Rice and includes two new songs written by Menken and lyrics by Oscar and Tony Award-winning songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
‘Aladdin’ arrives Friday, 24th May 2019 in UK cinemas.
