The first look at Disney’s live-action take of Aladdin with director, Guy Ritchie is here following the release of a new teaser. The new film is a direct remake of the 1992 smash hit animated film. This live-action tale will see Mena Massoud star as Aladdin with Naomi Scott portraying Jasmine and Will Smith as the Genie.
Rounding up the cast are Marwan Kenzari as Jafar, Navid Negahbana as the Sultan, Nasim Pedrad as Jasmine’s handmaiden, Billy Magnussen as a potential suitor for the Princess, and Numan Acar as Jafar’s right-hand man.
The new teaser though doesn’t reveal much about the film except that it looks to be CGI-carbon copy of the original. Not that we mind of course, but it would have been cool to catch a glimpse of the Genie in this one.
It looks like we’ll have to wait until the full-length Aladdin trailer is released, which should be fairly soon as the film is slated to open in late May 2019.
