Disney has released the first full-length trailer for Aladdin, the live-action remake of its own 1992 hit animated film of the same name, from director Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes).
The film’s previous look had met with severe backlash over the computer-generated look of Will Smith as the blue-coloured Genie, with users across social media having a field day generating memes and Photoshop edits.
The new trailer can do little to offset the weirdness, but it does give us a peek at the banter between Smith and Mena Massoud (Jack Ryan), who plays the titular thief. Additionally, it recreates some iconic scenes and songs.
Aladdin will float into cinemas worldwide on May 24, 2019. It’s one of three remakes of a Disney animated film in 2019, alongside Dumbo on March 29, 2019 and The Lion King on July 19, 2019.
