Once upon a time, there was a boy named Aladdin … we all have heard that story and are familiar with the animated version where the late Robin Williams rendered the vocals for our favorite genie. How about reliving the same story all over again in live-action, with our very own Fresh Prince of Bel Air playing the genie?

The much-delayed theatrical trailer of this Disney classic brings together the iconic characters from the animated film and breathes life into them. Here Aladdin (Mena Massoud) is a no good thief in Agarbah who wants to marry the Princess (Naomi Scott); his wish is fulfilled after the genie (Will Smith) befriends him and together with his pet monkey Abu in tow, they try to impress the beautiful Princess Jasmine. The Grand Vazir Jafar (Marwan Kenzari) wants the magic lamp (and the genie) for himself since he secretly desires to be the Sultan one day.
This trailer is a fun rollercoaster ride for their audience since a) there is Will Smith as a Genie and b) he can do anything he wants including ‘make a prince for Aladdin’.
The teaser of the upcoming film was a bit mysterious and serious but thankfully the trailer isn’t. Let’s hope that the film releasing on 24th May, 2019 does justice to the iconic animated characters and also help Aladdin prove his worth and win over Princess Jasmine.
Check out the amazing trailer of Aladdin.
