Live-Action Aladdin is a hot subject if you’re a Disney fan or know someone who is. It makes sense. With the astronomical success of Beauty and the Beast, hopes are high for another live-action remake to take us on a magic carpet ride. Disney just released a teaser trailer and poster for the live-action Aladdin remake, and from the looks of things, we fans won’t be disappointed.
About Live-Action Aladdin
Before we get into the trailer, let’s take a look at the boilerplate for this upcoming film:
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.
ALADDIN stars Will Smith as the larger-than-life Genie; Mena Massoud as the charming scoundrel Aladdin; Naomi Scott as Jasmine, the beautiful, self-determined princess; Marwan Kenzari as Jafar, the powerful sorcerer; Navid Negahban as the Sultan concerned with his daughter’s future; Nasim Pedrad as Dalia, Princess Jasmine’s free-spirited best friend and confidante; Billy Magnussen as the handsome and arrogant suitor Prince Anders; and Numan Acar as Hakim, Jafar’s right-hand man and captain of the palace guards. The film is produced by Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich with Marc Platt and Kevin De La Noy serving as executive producers. Alan Menken provides the score, which includes new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and lyricists Howard Ashman and Tim Rice and two new songs written by Menken and songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. The film, which was shot on practical stages in London and on location amidst the stunning desert vistas of Jordan, has a talented creative team helping to bring Agrabah to life, including director of photography Alan Stewart, production designer Gemma Jackson and costume designer Michael Wilkinson.
Okay, now that Disney has given you the rundown on the film – which you already know if you’ve seen the animated feature – let’s take a look at that teaser!
Live-Action Aladdin Trailer and Poster
Pretty amazing, if I do say so myself. This trailer is one minute and twenty-seven seconds of pure Aladdin magic. Everything I saw translated perfectly from animation to live action. We saw Iago. Aladdin looked great. The cave itself was spot on. This is going to be a good one!
