A Whole New 'Aladdin'

First teaser poster for Disney's live-action Aladdin

Take a look below at a small slice of a whole new world. Because when you love entertainment, you'll never have enough.

A blue Will Smith is ready and raring to dazzle audiences as the new Genie in Disney's upcoming live-action remake of "Aladdin".

Smith previously shared the first photo of the cast but until now nothing else but that poster had been revealed. But of the many, many titles they have planned, the one that had always been the most contentious was Aladdin. Until today's video teaser, no one had seen anything else since. The promo is high on visuals and sound as it provides a view of Agrabah, with a parrot - safe to assume it is Aladdin's pal Jafar - flying high in the air.

The movie, directed by Guy Ritchie, also stars Naomi Scott as Jasmine, Will Smith as Genie and Marwan Kenzari as Jafar.

The film has come under some controversy regarding cultural appropriation after the inclusion of a white character named Prince Anders, to be played by Billy Magnussen.

Massoud and Scott's castings were jointly announced at the D23 Expo in July 2017.

From the looks of the first trailer, released Thursday evening, the film doesn't seem shy about borrowing familiar elements from its predecessor.
