Growing up, both Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast were my favourite Disney movies and knowing a live-action film is almost here is getting me so excited!
Disney has FINALLY released the first trailer for Aladdin and check out the film’s first poster below.

The live-action remake of Aladdin will star Mena Massoud (Aladdin), Naomi Scott (Jasmine), Will Smith (magical Genie) and Marwan Kenzari as the cruel Jafar.  The movie will also include Nasim Pedrad and Billy Magnussen.


Aladdin will be directed by Guy Ritchie who also worked on other Disney classics like Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella and The Jungle Book.  Don’t worry – there are still two other Disney movies in the works to be remade into live-action films; The Lion King and Dumbo!

During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Naomi Scott who will play Jasmine spoke about her character and what people can expect to see, “You really get in this adaptation of the movie that her heart is for her people, and her main objective is what’s best for her kingdom and you really get a sense that she has those leadership qualities within her.”



Aladdin will hit theatres on May 24, 2019!
