Disney’s ‘Aladdin’ trailer gives us some iconic tunes

The newest trailer for the live-action remake of “Aladdin” is finally here!

On Tuesday (March 12), the latest official trailer for the upcoming Disney flick was unleashed during Good Morning America. Unlike the first trailer that made its debut in late 2018, this two-and-a-half-minute teaser gives fans what they’ve been patiently waiting for; the music.

Mirroring the 1992 animated film, the trailer begins with everyone’s favorite street rat running away from the palace guards when he comes face to face with Princess Jasmine.

Fast forward a bit, and we watch as Jafar strikes a deal with Aladdin in which our favorite black-and-red-sporting villain promises to make the latter “rich enough to impress a princess.” Since he is infatuated with the princess, Aladdin agrees to go into the Cave of Wonders for Jafar to procure the magic lamp.

The new footage also gives viewers a better look at Will Smith’s Genie as well as Abu, Carpet, and the inside of the Cave of Wonders (and all its treasures).

If that wasn’t enough, the clip also features snippets of two of the film’s biggest hits, “Friend Like Me” and “A Whole New World.”

Disney’s “Aladdin” will magically appear at a theater near you on May 24.

The upcoming film stars Will Smith as Genie, Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine, Marwan Kenzari as Royal Vizier Jafar, and Navid Negahban as the Sultan.

With the success of the live action versions of  “Cinderella,” “The Jungle Book,” and “Beauty and the Beast,” it was only a matter of time before Disney went digging into their archives to pull out another animated film to bring to life. Last year, the House of Mouse formally announced that 1992’s “Aladdin” would be the next animated film to get the live-action treatment.

On Friday (Oct. 12), the media giants unveiled the first teaser trailer for the upcoming new film. The minute-and-a-half teaser begins with a shot of a desert as the shadow of a bird is seen on the sand. The camera follows the bird which turns out to be Jafar’s trusty parrot/snitch, Iago. The camera continues to follow Iago as he soars above Agrabah to another desolate area of the desert. About 45 seconds in, the voice of the Cave of Wonders is heard reciting one of the most famous lines from the original film.

“Only one may enter here,” proclaims the tiger-headed sand creation. “One whose worth lies far within. A diamond in the rough.”

As the Cave of Wonders recites the lines, a shot of three people standing in front of the entrance can be seen. By the headpiece one of them is wearing, we can assume that the person is the Royal Vizier/the film’s villain Jafar while one of the others is the film’s protagonist, Aladdin.

At the one-minute mark, a slowed-down, instrumental version of Genie’s classic song “Friend Like Me” begins to play in the background as the viewer gets their first look at not only the inside of the Cave of Wonders, but also our street rat/hero, Aladdin.
