It wasn’t that long ago when we got our first look at Will Smith as the Genie in Disney’s upcoming live-action “Aladdin” movie. Viewers were underwhelmed to say the least, and questioned how unfinished the blue CG model looked. Today, we have a new trailer to look at which includes a more refined Genie – and fans, we can all sigh a breath of relief.
Check out the trailer below:
Aside from getting many more morsels of what the movie will be like, we are definitely seeing more of what the Genie will look like. It’s a big improvement over what we saw last time.
The film stars Will Smith as the Genie; Mena Massoud as Aladdin; Naomi Scott as Jasmine; Marwan Kenzari as Jafar; Navid Negahban as the Sultan; Nasim Pedrad as Dalia; Billy Magnussen as Prince Anders; and Numan Acar as Hakim.
The movie also features new recordings of the original songs written by Alan Menken and Oscar-winning lyricists Howard Ashman and Tim Rice, plus two new songs written by Menken and lyrics by Oscar and Tony Award-winning songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
