After a gap of 27 long years, Disney released a new ‘special look' trailer for the live-action remake of its much-loved film Aladdin at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards Show. The film offered a glimpse what everyone was waiting for which is Will Smith in the popular blue genie avatar. A childhood favourite, Disney's Aladdin is all set to release their new film this May. Aladdin, which released in 1992, became a classic and looks like this film as well may be a blockbuster in the pipeline.

Aladdin will be helmed by Guy Ritchie, with Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Jasmine and Will Smith as the Genie in the sprawling city of Agrabah. Smith takes on Robin Williams’ former role as the Genie to bring a “hip hop flavor” to the part, reported Variety. Disney unveiled first-look images from Aladdin last December and they did look promising. 

In the new trailer, the movie is set against the backdrop of a Middle Eastern city amid the desserts. Mena Massoud as Aladdin can be seen walking up to the Cave of Wonders, whereas a shot of Jasmine can be seen as she walks down the palace's steps. Will Smith aka Genie appears in the last 20 seconds of the trailer and his genie avatar will definitely take you by surprise. 

Check out the trailer below:

 

 

Will Smith had earlier told Entertainment Weekly about the differences between his version of the character and Williams’. He had said, "The thing that will be the major addition from me playing the Genie is the hip-hop base. I think that’ll be fun for people. I think it’ll stand out as unique even in the Disney world. There hasn’t been a lot of that hip-hop flavor in Disney history."

Avan Jogia should've been Aladdin :(

They could have taken Priyanka Chopra for Jasmine..

Casting seems so wrong. I love Will Smith but he sounds like an American sit-com character. Ruined all the mystic atmoshphere. Jasmine doesn't look like a middle eastern princess but an ordinary western girl. I adore Guy Ritchie but i'm not sure about this movie.
