Now, we get to see the 50-year-old actor in action as the magical shapeshifting entity. Disney just debuted a new teaser trailer for the highly-anticipated Aladdin during the 2019 Grammys.
Aladdin is a thrilling and vibrant live-action remake of the beloved 1992 animated smash. It tells the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin (Mena Massoud), the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott) and the Genie (Smith) who may be the key to their future. It’s directed by Guy Ritchie who brings his singular flair for fast-paced, visceral action to the fictitious port city of Agraba.
