ALADDIN. Disney’s classic was one of the first dates I took with my future wife. We loved Robin Williams, and had heard such good things about ALADDIN. Since we got married three years later, I’d say ALADDIN was a successful date. Expectations are super-high for the live-action remake of Disney’s ALADDIN – especially for Will Smith stepping into the larger-than-life role of Genie, originated by Robin Williams. Can they pull it off? Take a look at the trailer below, and let us know what you think. I know I’ll be sitting in the theater with my wife and kids when Disney’s ALADDIN opens on May 24, 2019 – besides, that’s only four days before our 24th wedding anniversary.
From Walt Disney Studios’ Press Release
ALADDIN is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future. Directed by Guy Ritchie, who brings his singular flair for fast-paced, visceral action to the fictitious port city of Agrabah, the film is written by John August and Ritchie based on Disney’s ALADDIN.
ALADDIN stars Will Smith as the larger-than-life Genie; Mena Massoud as the charming scoundrel Aladdin; Naomi Scott as Jasmine, the beautiful, self-determined princess; Marwan Kenzari as Jafar, the powerful sorcerer; Navid Negahban as the Sultan concerned with his daughter’s future; Nasim Pedrad as Dalia, Princess Jasmine’s free-spirited best friend and confidante; Billy Magnussen as the handsome and arrogant suitor Prince Anders; and Numan Acar as Hakim, Jafar’s right-hand man and captain of the palace guards. The film is produced by Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich with Marc Platt and Kevin De La Noy serving as executive producers. Alan Menken provides the score, which includes new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and lyricists Howard Ashman and Tim Rice and two new songs written by Menken and songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. The film, which was shot on practical stages in London and on location amidst the stunning desert vistas of Jordan, has a talented creative team helping to bring Agrabah to life, including: director of photography Alan Stewart, production designer Gemma Jackson and costume designer Michael Wilkinson.
