The third trailer for Aladdin has arrived, and, finally, we get to hear ‘A Whole New World.’
Possibly one of the most iconic songs in the Disney music catalog, the rendition of ‘A Whole New World’ was going to be a make-or-break moment for this live-action remake of the film. It sounds like they nailed it.
After numerous online complaints, it also appears that the blue coloring of Genie has been cleaned up a bit as well.
The Disney live-action remakes have been cash machines for the studio, and there’s no reason to expect this one will perform any differently?
A thrilling and vibrant live-action adaptation of Disney’s animated classic, “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. Directed by Guy Ritchie, who brings his singular flair for fast-paced, visceral action to the fictitious port city of Agrabah, “Aladdin” is written by John August and Ritchie based on Disney’s “Aladdin.” The film stars Will Smith as the Genie; Mena Massoud as Aladdin; Naomi Scott as Jasmine; Marwan Kenzari as Jafar; Navid Negahban as the Sultan; Nasim Pedrad as Dalia and Billy Magnussen as Prince Anders.
Aladdin hits theaters on May 24.
