First Full Trailer For Live-Action 'Aladdin' Is Here

We finally have a very clear idea of what the live-action remake of the Disney classic will look like.


Disney started heavily teasing its live-action Aladdin reboot back in December. The cover of Entertainment Weekly featured Genie (Will Smith), Jasmine (Naomi Scott), and Aladdin (Mena Massoud). Then, during the Grammy Awards last month, we got our first look at the film with a very brief trailer.

But on Tuesday, Disney gave fans a real taste of the film with a full two-minute trailer that covers the entire storyline and shows us the magic carpet in action and a whole bunch of Genie.


Anyone who was a child in the '90s will get a heavy dose of nostalgia from some of these scenes, the most memorable of which is Jasmine taking Aladdin's hand and going for a magic carpet ride while singing "A Whole New World."

Fans Are Excited

There was perviously some criticism of the way Genie looked, but fans in the trailer's comments seem to like him much more after seeing this extended teaser:

"Honestly Will Smith as the genie feels way more natural in this trailer."

"I’ll admit from this trailer, Will Smith is doing pretty good as a Genie."

"Okay, trust restored and lesson learned; never judge a book by its cover or a movie by its first teaser."

"Fire whoever made the first genie teaser. I had been talking sh*t for a few weeks now, but this actually looks amazing."

Release Date

The movie is set to be released on May 24 and will no doubt be a summer box office smash. The original Aladdin smashed all kinds of numbers in 1992, becoming the first animated film to gross a half-billion dollars. The film brought in another $500 million from VHS sales.

'Lion King'

This isn't Disney's only live-action remake dropping this summer. The Lion King is coming out on July 19. It's going to be a huge summer for Disney and fans of '90s animation.
