Disney dropped the first trailer of the live-action remake of “Aladdin” during the 2019 Grammys Sunday night (Monday morning, Manila time).
The audience were treated with the first glimpse of Will Smith as the blue Genie, and Mena Massoud as Aladdin.
The teaser showed a scene between the two main characters, where Aladdin was rubbing a lamp inside a dark cave and Genie eventually showed up.
“You really don’t know who I am? Genie, wishes, lamp? None of that ring a bell?” Genie told a taken aback Aladdin.
Joining Smith and Massoud are Naomi Scott as Jasmine and Marwen Kenzari as villainous Jafar.
The newest film adaptation arrives 27 years after the original animated version was released in 1992.
“Aladdin” flies into theaters in May 2019.
