The upcoming big screen, live-action remake by Disney is Aladdin by Guy Ritchie. The film has seen a pretty mixed marketing campaign so far with the primary trailer turnings many fans off due to the blue version of the Genie, played by Will Smith. However, the film’s second trailer showed more of the film, as many fans have gotten back on the board.
New Aladdin TV Spot Is out!
Today, a new TV spot has been released for Aladdin, which focuses on the chemistry between Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott) and Aladdin (Mena Massoud). You may check it out below:
This TV spot actually highlights the chemistry between Princess Jasmine and Aladdin which had many fans worried about. The last few trailers have been extremely tight on the romance between both the characters, but this trailer focuses more on that aspect. The spot also reveals new glimpses at the city of Agrabah and the villainous Jafar, played by Marwan Kenzari. While fans can expect some basic elements from the original animated film, it seems like the live action film will be full of new things that will set the film different than the original one.
“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.
