Disney's Live Action Aladdin Teaser TrailerReported by Foxwolf on Thursday, October 11th 2018
The teaser follows the parrot Iago as he flies across the Arabian desert towards the city of Agrabah, before arriving at the Cave of Wonders as it delivers the line "one whose worth lies far within a diamond in the rough", and ends with the above shot of Aladdin (played by Mena Massoud) discovering the infamous Genie lamp. The footage is backed by a slower and more mysterious sounding rendition of "Arabian Nights" (the opening song of the animated movie) and ending with a little "Friend Like Me".
While the Genie was voiced by the legendary Robin Williams, in the live action version, he will be played by a confirmed-to-be-blue Will Smith. It's unclear whether Iago will speak in the new film, but his animated voice actor Gilbert Gottfried has expressed interest in reprising the role. Based on the teaser alone, there is at least confirmation of one voiced role, that is the commanding Cave of Wonders (voiced by Frank Welker in the original. Welker also voiced Aladdin's monkey Abu).
Aladdin unleashes the magic on May 24th 2019.
