Aladdin's First Live-Action Trailer Introduces a Whole New World

In addition to classic songs from the first film, the live-action movie features new songs co-written by Menken and Pasek & Paul. From the looks of the first trailer, released Thursday evening, the film doesn't seem shy about borrowing familiar elements from its predecessor.

In the original film, "street rat" Aladdin frees the Genie from a magic lamp, earning three wishes in the process.

We just started shooting Aladdin and I wanted to intro you guys to our new family...

Last year, Will Smith shared pics from the star-studded Aladdin set. It shows his character's lamp, with a message: "Choose wisely".

Will Smith, who will play Genie, shared the poster on his Instagram on October 10. Smith followed it up by saying, "Can't wait for y'all to see me BLUE!", alluding to his role as Genie.

Along the way he falls in love with Princess Jasmine, enlists the genie's help to make him a prince and win her heart - all while running afoul of the sorcerer Jafar. Fans will be relieved to know animal sidekicks Abu, Iago and Rajah are expected to be in the movie.

Guy Ritchie's film follows numerous same beats - Mena Massoud stars as the titular charming street rat who meets the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott) and a Smith's Genie who may be the key to their future. It's being directed by Sherlock Holmes director Guy Ritchie.
