Disney has released a brand-new full trailer and illuminating poster for the live-action adaptation of its classic animated feature, Aladdin. The new spot shows off the spunky street urchin’s Douglas Fairbanks-style stunts in the streets of Agrabah, Genie’s magic-meets-comedy act, and the promise of many stunning CG-enhanced scenes, digital creatures and soaring musical numbers.
Directed by Guy Ritchie and starring Will Smith, Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott, Aladdin is due in theaters nationwide May 24.
Synopsis: Aladdin is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin (Mena Massoud), the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott) and the Genie (Will Smith) who may be the key to their future.
