An Aladdin teaser is now available to start getting you excited about the film. The biggest wildcard here is the character of the Genie. People love Aladdin, and while I'm sure there will be some additions and some alterations, overall the new movie will likely bear a strong resemblance to the animated original. As Aladdin and Jasmine fall in love, they must also face the evil Jafar, who plans to become Sultan by marrying Jasmine.

While others were concerned that Smith was trying to replace Williams and his work in the 1992 animated film. Smith plays Genie alongside Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Naomi Campbell as Jasmine, and Marwan Kenzari as Jafar. Ritchie's film will include a couple of new songs, co-written by Disney music legend Alan Menken and writing duo Pasek & Paul - behind the likes of La La Land, The Greatest Showman, and stage musical Dear Evan Hansen. "His take on "Aladdin" is very muscular and action-packed, and that's a very cool energy and point of view to bring into the mix".

On the heels of the tease by star Will Smith, Disney has debuted the first look at its live-action Aladdin.

The Disney movie is expected to fly into theaters in May 2019. "As the filming went on it really became like a family and Guy was just fantastic, finding these little nuances to make it (the film) so much more intense or powerful".
