Walt Disney Pictures has finally rolled out the first teaser trailer for their upcoming live-action adaptation of Aladdin. The Guy Ritchie directed film is a remake of the beloved 1992 animated film, Aladdin, featuring actor Robin Williams in the role of Genie. The film, which ended up bagging two Oscars, earned more than $500 million worldwide and became the first animated film to reach the half-billion mark.
The much-awaited trailer offers a glimpse of Agrabah, the fictional city where the story takes place, the Cave of Wonders and the newcomer Mena Massoud as Aladdin. It ends with Aladdin finding the lamp, which grants wishes courtesy of Genie.
“Only one may enter here…one whose worth lies far within…the diamond in the rough,” the gravelly-voiced guardian of the cave calls out in the trailer when Aladdin tries to enter inside.
Unfortunately, the iconic blue Genie, Aladdin’s flamboyant magical friend, is nowhere to be found. So, this means fans will have to wait a little longer to get a glimpse at Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine, Will Smith as Genie and Marwan Kenzari as the villainous and scheming Jafar.
The trailer follows the film’s first teaser poster uncovered by Smith. The Suicide Squad actor took to Instagram to share the poster with his fans teasing that he can’t wait to get out of that little magical lamp.
“LEMME OUT!! :-), Can’t wait for y’all to see Me BLUE!,” Smith captioned the poster featuring the magical lamp. You can check out the trailer and teaser poster below.
“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,” the film’s synopsis reads.
The film is set to release in theatres on May 24, 2019.
