Disney has just released the latest trailer for the most anticipated live action this year, ALADDIN. In this one-minute video, the hopes of all fans are granted. Because when the first first look was released at the end of 2018, it was protested a lot because Will Smith, The Genie, didn’t look blue at all.
The teaser this time also highlights the chemistry between Naomi Scott and Mena Massoud, which is quite slick. Aladdin and Jasmine were shown driving their legendary vehicle, flying carpet. Disney also featured more scenes in the Wonder Cave.
This ALADDIN trailer was released to coincide with the moment of the 2019 Grammy Awards event. However, it must be admitted that the Genie figure played by Will Smith was the most steal. In this teaser he also got a portion of the scene that was quite long and took attention.
“You really don’t know who I am? Genie? Request? Magic Lamp? Nobody knows?” said Will Smith, who just came out of the magic lamp.
This film was produced with the direction of Guy Ritchie and John August. Besides Naomi, Mena and Will will be Billy Magnussen (Prince Anders), Marwan Kenzari (Jafar) and Nasim Pedrad (Dalia). ALADDIN will be released on May 24, 2019.
Even though the film is about the adventures of Aladdin and Jasmine, it is undeniable that this blue Jin figure is excellent. This certainly becomes a burden for Will Smith.
Because this iconic figure has its own place especially after being played by the late Robin Williams. In the previous version, Robin Williams only voiced, because it was still in the form of a 2D animated film. But now Will Smith will play a role in CGI technology.
“I’m going to BIRU, how come this is Jin when he transforms into a human. My character will (be created through) CGI in the film,” Will Smith said when protested last year.
