Disney has finally given us the first glimpse of the highly anticipated live action version of Aladdin. The character with whom we cherish amazing childhood memories is set to hit the big screen on July 24th 2019. The discussion for the movie began two years back with Disney bringing in Guy Ritchie to direct it. Aladdin stars Will Smith, Naomi Scott and Mena Massoud. Earlier on Wednesday, the first look poster of the movie was revealed and it surely amazed us. The poster was unveiled by Will Smith on Twitter, who will be portraying the role of Genie in the live-action drama. (Aladdin Trailer)
The teaser trailer opens with the beautiful view of sand dunes with people travelling on a camel at a distance. The scene is packed with memorable background score ‘Arabian Night’ which you will find yourself humming. The trailer is quite small but it confirms one thing that Disney hasn’t left any stone unturned. As the teaser further progresses we get the look of Cave of Wonders where eventually Aladdin will find the Lamp that houses Genie. Near the end of the trailer, we get the first look of Mena Massoud as Aladdin as he reaches out to grab the lamp.
The audience will keep a special eye on Will Smith as he will be essaying the role of Genie which has been made popular by the iconic performance of Robin Williams, hence we are bound to compare his performance. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and pray that Will Smith hits it out of the park. Disney has been blamed for whitewashing the movie but all the accusations were put to rest when South Asian actors were picked up for the lead roles. Now we are all set to relive the magical tale of Aladdin. (Aladdin Trailer)
