Forget the teaser and the “special look”, we now have a big old official trailer for Disney and Guy Ritchie’s upcoming live action/CGI remake of Aladdin.
It’s a lavish, lots of singing, lots of dancing affair, giving us an embiggened look at Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Will Smith as Genie and Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine.
As for the story, it’s pretty much the same – boy sees girl, boy wants to impress girl, boy finds genie, boy gets three wishes, and so on.
It should comfort many fence-sitters to know that Alan Menken, who co-wrote the songs for the animated original, provides the musical accompaniment here. This includes new recordings of the original and much-loved songs, along with two shiny new tunes.
Aladdin swoops into Australian cinemas on May 23.
