First Live-Action ALADDIN Trailer Has Some Familiar Sights (and Tunes)

Will Smith reveals first post for Disney's 'Aladdin' Aladdin teaser trailer: The diamond in the rough has found his way to Genie’s lamp

Film by film, Disney is going through your childhood favourites and remaking them in live-action - and next year will bring three new takes on their animated classics.

The first look gives us a glimpse at the unbelievable live-action set.

The trailer goes heavy on the nostalgia, from the glimpse viewers get of Iago, one of the sinister Jafar's henchmen, to the voice of the Cave of Wonders, the resting place of the lamp that Aladdin inevitably uses to summon a genie, kicking off numerous misadventures and putting him on a course to meet Princess Jasmine. Looking similar to the 1992 Robin Williams film, the poster features an ornate lamp and blue smoke along with the words: "Choose wisely".

Aladdin is directed by Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes, The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) from a screenplay by John August (Dark Shadows, Big Fish) based on the 1992 animated film Aladdin and stories from "One Thousand and One Nights". Smith shared the poster, which you can check out in the gallery below, on his Facebook, saying: "LEMME OUT!" People love Aladdin, and while I'm sure there will be some additions and some alterations, overall the new movie will likely bear a strong resemblance to the animated original. Naomi and Mena looked ideal as Princess Jasmine and Aladdin.

The live-action movie also stars Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine, Marwan Kenzari as Jafar, and Navid Negahban as the Sultan. The live-action versions of The Lion King and Dumbo will also debut in 2019.
