Aladdin trailer: Will Smith is the Genie of the Lamp

A surprise TV spot blue everyone away

We got to see a brief glimpse of the upcoming love-action version of Guy Ritichie’s Aladdin late last year. A TV spot dropped unexpectedly during the Grammy’s last night and we got a good look at Will Smith as the Genie – and it was, erm, unique. Seeing him in all his blue glory was more than enough, but the motion capture animation needs a lot of work to stop this looking like a disaster. You can see for yourself by watching the one minute trailer for Aladdin above.

The film tells the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future.

With Ritchie directing the cast features Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Will Smith as the Genie, Marwan Kenzari as Jafar, Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine, and Billy Magnussen as Prince Anders.

Aladdin will fly into UK cinemas on May 24th 2019.
