If you’re a Disney fan then 2019 is going to be a lot of fun for you, not only do we have the impending releases of Dumbo and The Lion King to look forward to but the action, adventure, romance and music of Aladdin is also set to make a return to the big screen as well.
Director Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes, Snatch) is bringing his talent for creating dynamic images to play here and now we’ve got a host of brand new images that will really get you excited about the movie.
The brand new images, which have arrived courtesy of Walt Disney, show off a bright and colourful world and really bring alive the textures and sights of Agrabah. Stars Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott make for a great site as Aladdin and Jasmine, and with Ritchie’s talent for crafting amazing images you can bet that Aladdin is sure to provide plenty of spectacle.
And when we’re talking about Aladdin we also have to mention the presence of Will Smith who is taking up the coveted role of The Genie, of course made famous by the great Robin Williams and the veteran actor is really keen to do the character and Williams performance and legacy proud. Smith will also be able to bring his vocal talents to bear here as well and is joining legendary lyricist Alan Menken along with Pasek & Paul, who will be writing new songs for the film.
Here’s the official synopsis:
When noble Agrabahan street thief Aladdin (Mena Massoud) stumbles upon a magic lamp and the Genie (Will Smith) who lives inside of it he suddenly finds himself swept up into the adventure of a lifetime.
