Check out these first look pictures from the new Live-Action Aladdin
Disney released a handful of sneak peek photos from their upcoming Live-Action Aladdin movie
Aladdin, the live-action film remake of the classic Disney film is set to release in theaters on May 24, 2019. The film will feature an incredible cast with Will Smith playing the role of Genie (originally voiced by Robin Williams, no pressure), Aladdin will be played by Mena Massoud who is a lesser known actor most recently seen in Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan in the role of Tarek Kassar. Jasmine will be played by Naomi Scott who was most recently seen as the Pink Ranger in the Power Rangers movie in 2017. Disney released a handful of photos yesterday as a teaser for the movie. The movie has also released a teaser trailer, which was released in October of this year.
Overall, the response to the photos has been positive, but a few people have mentioned that they might be on “Team Jafar” instead of “Team Aladdin” after seeing the actor that’s playing Jafar is Marwan Kenzari. As usual, the Twitter community has not failed to write out some comical explanations for their decision to root for Jafar in the live-action Aladdin film.
We, for one, cannot wait to see the live-action Aladdin in the spring of 2019. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below and be sure to subscribe to The Sitch for more Disney movie news and other entertaining reads.
