“Aladdin” is 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.
Will Smith as Genie awes audience
As well as giving us our first glimpse of Will Smith’s Genie – which has split fans right down the middle – the photos shared by EW also gave us a look at the new Abu, Marwan Kenzari as Jafar, Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine, Nasim Pedrad as her loyal handmaiden Dalia, and of course, Mena Massoud as Aladdin. But just in case all that wasn’t enough, we’ve now got a great new behind the scenes video to dive into.
Seen above, it features soundbites from the cast as we get to see a bit of what went down on set, with the footage really showing off Aladdin‘s magnificent production design, which is full of lavish detail everywhere you look, including all the incredible costumes on display. And though it’s not quite the same as getting a second proper trailer for the movie, this is still a great look at the remake regardless and should tide fans over until the next real preview arrives.
