Disney releases new ‘Aladdin’ trailer

Disney releases new ‘Aladdin’ trailer

Disney's live-action remake of Aladdin doesn't hit theaters for another two months, but already it's drawn a fair amount of criticism.

Of course, there are still plenty of Smith skeptics out there.

Before granting his request, Smith's Genie tells Aladdin to be more specific. We've seen Naomi Scott as the sultry Princess Jasmine.

With Will Smith as the Genie, the movie had its first full promo debut on US TV this morning, courtesy of Good Morning America.

Genie ultimately helps Aladdin look like a prince, teaching him to walk the walk and talk the talk. This trailer is covered in garbage smell, and the fact that Disney set this movie for Memorial Day weekend, when Solo died previous year, does not speak highly of their internal expectations for the movie.

Another added: "IM SO READY FOR THIS", with a third commenting: "Yeah I was lil bit skeptical about Will Smith playing Genie, but now I am convinced". An external transformation is easy, but an internal one will take more work on Aladdin's part - hopefully in time to sweep Jasmine off her feet.

Greenville's Za'Darius Smith to sign with Packers for $66 million
Smith will be a huge addition to a pass rush that struggled mightily to create consistent pressure on the quarterback in 2018. If Pettine can keep Smith producing disruption on the money down for the Packers defense, he'll be worth all that money.

In the trailer, Smith can be seen reprising Robin Williams' iconic role in several scenes, some in plain clothes garb and others in the genie's trademark blue.

The trailer for Aladdin gives a longer look at Smith as the Genie, making it clear that he's just as amusing and mischievous as the original voiced by Robin Williams in the 1992 animated version.

Disney released the trailer on Twitter with the caption: "A whole new world".

The live-action film features new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and lyricists Howard Ashman and Tim Rice.

One fan said they "can't resist" the classic songs and another speculated that Aladdin could become their favourite Disney live-action movie.
