Will Smith is Aladdin in the New Disney
Film Arriving in Theatres May 24, 2019
(New York, NY) - Will Smith upcoming Disney film " Aladdin " arrives
in theaters May 24, 2019. With the release of the live-action Aladdin trailer last week, fans have been wondering who's in
the live-action Aladdin 2019 cast.
As many know, the upcoming live-action Aladdin movie is based on Disney's
1992 animated film, which tells the Arabic folktale of Aladdin and the Magic Lamp, a story about a streetrat named Aladdin
who finds a magic lamp, is granted three wishes by a genie and, well, you know the rest.
Each Aladdin trailer grants
a new wish. The first, gave us the initial glimpse of the live-action take on the world around Agrabah. The second showed
us what would happen if Will Smith "blue" himself up as the guardian of the magic lamp. Now the full-length preview,
released Tuesday on Good Morning America, gives us a taste of the music.
Mena Massoud's Aladdin and Naomi Scott's Princess
Jasmine take off on a magic carpet ride in the new trailer, performing for the first time a snippet of this film's take on
"A Whole New World."
The footage also teases Smith's big number inside the Cave of Wonders with "Friend
Like Me" and all the fantastical CGI pyrotechnics that go with it. There are also snapshots of the big "Prince Ali"
arrival number and some recreations of the animated classic's famous scenes.
But there are new additions, as well. For
one, we can safely assume that carpet chase between Aladdin and a gargantuan Iago comes towards the end in the great battle
Directed by Guy Ritchie, Aladdin, the latest in Disney's live-action interpretations of its animated
library, also features Marwan Kenzari as Jafar, Navid Negahban as the Sultan, Nasim Pedrad as Jasmine's friend and handmaiden
Dalia, and Billy Magnussen in the new role of Prince Anders.
