Sparkling first trailer for Disney's live-action Aladdin reboot debuts online
A first trailer for Disney's new live-action re-telling of Aladdin has arrived. Click below to watch it:
Aladdin tells the story of a street urchin who vies for the love of a beautiful princess named Jasmine. To try and win her affections he uses a genie's magic power to make himself off as a prince in order to marry her, only to run into serious trouble along the way.
Power Rangers star Naomi Scott, newcomer Mena Massoud and Will Smith take the three key roles.
Scott, who played Pink Ranger in this year's Power Rangers reboot, will play Jasmine, with Massoud, who has had small roles in medical dramas Open Heart and Saving Hope, takes the title role. Smith will play the genie.
Marwan Kenzari, Navid Negahban, Nasim Pedrad, Billy Magnussen and Numan Acar co-star, working for director Guy Ritchie.
The re-telling had originally been billed as a prequel to the 1992 Disney animated take on the tale, but is now a more straightforward live-action re-telling with a script from Big Fish writer John August.
Aladdin will be released into UK cinemas on May 24th in 2019.
