If you have a magic lamp, rub it and make a wish. The production design is undeniably impressive, and it's hard not to get chills when those first few notes of "A Whole New World" kick in, but I don't know, something still feels a little "off" here. Check out the new Aladdin trailer in the player below! Oh yeah, and the trailer (as well as a new poster) also reassures moviegoers that Smith won't be all blue, all the time, which means you can hold off on any more of those Arrested Development memes.

Disney's live-action adaptation of "Aladdin" opens in theaters May 24. This film's Marwan Kenzari simply doesn't seem to possess any of the delectable charisma-what the Wicked Witch of the West would call "beautiful wickedness"-that came so naturally to voice actor Jonathan Freeman in the 1992 animated original".

Director Guy Ritchie has tried to create Agrabah in the real world for this live-action experience but it is yet to be seen if the audience is in agreement with his casting choices.

But most importantly, the new trailer actually shows the beloved characters in action. Yes, even the actor's not-menacing-at-all voice. The full-length trailer gives us a better look at what a visual delight it is going to be. We got some of the songs AND way more footage.

"Hold on.that Aladdin trailer Will Smith just drop actually kind of fire", said @elitelife_kd.

As for Aladdin and Jasmine, they look ... fine? Canadian actor Mena Massoud plays Aladdin, with Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine.
