Watch The First Teaser Of The Live-Action Aladdin Movie

Watch The First Teaser Of The Live-Action Aladdin Movie

The trailer gives us our first brief glimpse of the sands of Agrabah, our titular hero (played by Mena Massoud), the ever-so-famous lamp, the Cave of Wonders and everyone's favourite macaw, Iago. (Hence, the "diamond in the rough" line in the teaser.) The location ends up being where Aladdin finds the Genie's lamp, something that is set up by the teaser's final moment. Unfortunately, Will Smith doesn't appear as the Genie at all in this trailer, but no doubt we'll get to see him soon. The tagline reads, "Choose Wisely". Just yesterday, actor Will Smith took to Instagram to share the first poster for the film.

Fans will have to wait until next May to truly see what Ritchie has in store for the remake.

Unfortunately, there's no look at Will Smith as the Genie just yet, but remember this is just the first tease!

Make way for another Disney live-action adaptation to hit the big screen.

The live-action Aladdin is based on the 1992 animated movie featuring Robin Williams as the voice of Genie.

Aladdin is scheduled for release in 3D and IMAX on May 24, 2019.

Directed by Guy Ritchie and written by John August, the upcoming film also stars Naomi Scott, Marwan Kenzari, Navid Negahban, Numan Acar, Nasim Pedrad, and Billy Magnussen. Disney is also developing live-action remakes for their streaming service - titles like The Sword in the Stone and Lady and the Tramp.
