New ‘Aladdin’ Trailer Unveils More and Features “A Whole New World”

Walt Disney Pictures

The official trailer has been released for Disney‘s live-action remake of Aladdin.

The teaser was solid, but that sneak peak set the hype back with its look at an unfinished-looking Will Smith as Genie. Well, the anticipation could be back on track with the official trailer, which offers up a good amount of fun footage from the upcoming film, including a slice of the new version of “A Whole New World.” The production design continues to look great, and the cast mostly seems on point – even if Smith is basically just doing Smith, and the match-making thing is oh-so Hitch. We’re also wanting a little more of the still-not-so-threatening-looking Jafar, who’s played by Marwan Kenzari.

Smith, by the way, says he’s seen the full film. “I just saw the Finished version of #Aladdin!!” he posted on Instagram. “IT IS FIRE ? I AM HYPED!!! I can’t wait for y’all to see it. “

Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes, Snatch) directs from a screenplay he wrote with John August (Big Fish, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Corpse Bride). The cast includes Mena Massoud as Aladdin; Naomi Scott as Jasmine; Navid Negahban as the Sultan; Nasim Pedrad as Dalia; Billy Magnussen as Prince Anders; and Alan Tudyk as the voice of Iago.

Aladdin will be hitting Aussie cinemas on May 23 and opens in the US on May 24.

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. Directed by Guy Ritchie, who brings his singular 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 “Aladdin.”
