You Ain’t Never Met a Friend Like This Full ‘Aladdin’ Trailer

Aladdin casting controversy

We've already seen peeks at Disney's new adaptation of its animated classic, but this is the most compelling reason yet to get excited about the Guy Ritchie-directed film.

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.

The trailer gives us our best look yet at the characters of Jasmine (Naomi Scott) and Aladdin (Mena Massoud), as well as the fictional city of Agrabah.

Weeks after we were introduced to Will Smith's blue genie, Smith took to Instagram to announce that the first trailer of Aladdin is here.

Will Smith plays the blue-skinned Genie, the role made famous in the 1992 animated version by Robin Williams.

The first official trailer of Disney's live action Aladdin is out. What do you think of the new trailer and poster? The two-minute-and-13-second clip premiered during Good Morning America. Aladdin hits theaters May 24. "I don't think people will be anxious about Genie after this!" one wrote.

A rather note-worthy moment in the trailer was Will Smith's appearance.

In all, Disney has seemingly taken advice from Don Draper: they didn't like what people were saying about Aladdin, having roasted Smith's Genie to a crisp, so they changed the conversation with this new trailer.

Aladdin also stars Navid Negahban (Homeland) as the Sultan, Nasim Pedrad (Saturday Night Live) as Dalia, Billy Magnussen (Into the Woods) as Prince Anders, and Numan Acar (Homeland) as Hakim, Jafar's right-hand man and head of the palace guards.
