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 against Jafar.
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.
The film will open in theaters this May 24. Watch the new trailer above and check out the film’s poster below.
