The teaser starts with a more classical take on the original’s music accompanied with an overview of the beautiful sunset over the sandy dessert near the fictional city of Agrabah.
We are then introduced to what we can we can assume is Iago, Jafar’s evil parrot, flying towards the infamous cave magically secured right before giving us a beautiful shot of Aladdin (played by Mena Massoud) about to steal the magic lamp.
Watch the teaser below:
So, I know it’s just a teaser (a beautiful teaser btw) but it would’ve been amazing to maybe have a shadowy shot of the genie at least. I’m sure you guys are all as excited as me to see Will Smith becoming blue and magical!
Aladdin also stars Naomi Scott as Jasmine and Marwan Kenzari as Jafar. The movie will hit theaters May 24th, 2019.
