First full Aladdin movie trailer takes a magiccarpet ride onto screens

A full trailer for the live-action Aladdin movie has materialized.The trailer for the Guy Ritchie-directed film was released Tuesday during Good Morning America, just a month after footage from the upcoming Disney movie came out at the Grammy Awards.  Will Smith plays the prankster Genie, a role made famous by Robin Williams in the 1992 animated version. Mena Massoud plays Aladdin, with Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine. Smith’s blue-skinned appearance in the Grammy footage already has sparked plenty of social buzz. But as the new trailer makes clear, blue is an optional choice for this Genie. There are times when he’s not tinted in that color, whether to attend a party or just to lounge around.Massoud is loving his whole new world. “Still pinch myself sometimes at the idea of playing this iconic character,” the actor tweeted. “His journey in this film is only something I could have dreamed of playing with. This trailer is only a sliver of the adventures you’ll see this May.”    1 Tags Ok, the musical numbers in the new #Aladdin are looking pretty spot-on 🕺 pic.twitter.com/KbCr5WjG3d— Fandom (@getFANDOM) March 12, 2019 Disney Yikes. This is just one of those movies that was never meant to be live action. Jasmine should be smoking hot. Jafar should be scary. The lead looks mad lame. Will Smith is so obnoxious and not funny. It was a classic. A classic. Now this trash.— Liz 🏳️‍🌈 (@bklyn_goes_hard) March 12, 2019 much better but what an awful Jafar casting, doesnt look scary and his voice, omg his voice isnt intimidating, wth people, your are crippling one of the greatest villains of all time.— Guillaume Dauphinais (@delphs) March 12, 2019 Amazing the difference a full trailer can make….definitely more interested in #Aladdin now. pic.twitter.com/N4BDyq2iFd— Jordan Maison (@JordanMaison) March 12, 2019 Aladdin opens May 23 in Australia and May 24 in the US and UK.
