If you watched the Grammy Awards last night you may have noticed a new trailer for Disney’s upcoming live-action version of Aladdin. The new video features Will Smith as the beloved larger-than-life Genie in blue makeup and man bun.
As previously mentioned, Mena Massoud is the charming scoundrel Aladdin; Naomi Scott is Jasmine, the beautiful, self-determined princess; Marwan Kenzari is Jafar, the powerful sorcerer; Navid Negahban is the Sultan concerned with his daughter’s future; Nasim Pedrad is Dalia, Princess Jasmine’s free-spirited best friend and confidante; Billy Magnussen is the handsome and arrogant suitor Prince Anders; and Numan Acar is 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.
