The "Aladdin" clip also gives fans a closer look at the evil Jafar, played by Marwan Kenzari, as well as the love story between Aladdin (Mena Massoud) and Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott). It may seem like a small nitpick, but it points to what could be fundamental flaws in Disney's conception of this new Aladdin.
We are two months out from the release of Disney's live-action Aladdin remake, and we are only just now getting a full trailer. There was a lot to talk about in that trailer, but nearly immediately, conversation turned to the fact that Will Smith, who plays the Genie, was blue and that it looked weird.
The first official trailer of Disney's live action Aladdin is out. And the footage? Well, it's quite captivating - magical enough to make skeptics totally reconsider their thoughts on the reimagined take of the 1992 animated classic, cool enough to completely change your thoughts on Will Smith's iteration of the Genie.
Watch the new trailer below.
"This Aladdin Trailer is unbelievable!"

"I thought a Princess could go anywhere", Aladdin says before they take off, with Jasmine replying, "Not this princess". Mena Massoud stars as the street-rat-with-a-heart-of-gold Aladdin, with Naomi Scott as the handsome and determined Princess Jasmine.
