Okay, I’m sold.
This official full length trailer of the upcoming live-action Aladdin (2019, directed by Guy Ritchie) looks promising. I’m so excited to see this magical journey unfold with the musical and dance performances that are teased in the trailer.
I’ve never actually properly watched the animated Aladdin before, so I will have to check that out first before watching this live-action version. I’m most looking forward to seeing Naomi Scott’s portrayal of Princess Jasmine because she looks so good and she sounds so good in the trailer. As for Mena Massoud’s Aladdin, he looks like a small boy, which I guess is actually fitting for the role given than Aladdin is supposed to be 18-years-old. I’m not that impressed by his vocals though, so I will have to watch the movie to give my final thoughts. And as for Will Smith’s Genie—he looks incredible when he’s big and blue!
