New Trailer & Poster for Disney’s Upcoming Aladdin
There is less than two months before the live-action adaptation of my favorite Disney animated classic, Aladdin hits theaters and I am bursting with anticipation. While Will Smith has big shoes to fill as the Genie, I have high hopes that he will do the role justice in Robin Williams absence. The movie will offer a different visual effect compared to the animation but I love the magic that Disney brings and can’t wait to see how they transform our favorite scenes into real life images.
To help you prepare for the pending release, Disney has released a new movie poster (above) and a new trailer for the film. The trailer is below for you to watch and share with us your thoughts in the comments below.
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.” The film stars Will Smith as the Genie; Mena Massoud as Aladdin; Naomi Scott as Jasmine; Marwan Kenzari as Jafar; Navid Negahban as the Sultan; Nasim Pedrad as Dalia and Billy Magnussen as Prince Anders.
“Aladdin” is produced by Dan Lin, p.g.a., and Jonathan Eirich, p.g.a., with Kevin De La Noy and Marc Platt serving as executive producers. Eight-time Academy Award®-winning composer Alan Menken provides the score, which includes new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Oscar®-winning lyricists Howard Ashman and Tim Rice and includes two new songs written by Menken and lyrics by Oscar and Tony Award®-winning songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
