In 2010, Disney stumbled upon an easy recipe for massive blockbuster success with Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland: just remake old animated classics and moviegoers will come. The movie wasn’t particularly well received by critics or fans, yet it went on to gross over $1 billion at the box office.
Disney followed this by giving the greenlight to a bunch of remakes of animated classics in the hopes of creating similar guaranteed hits. Then came Maleficent, Cinderella, The Jungle Book and Beauty and Beast. All of them were resounding hits, solidifying Disney’s decision to make these movies.
The next animated classic to get the live action treatment is Aladdin, the 1992 hit buoyed by Robin Williams’ tour de force performance as the Genie. Disney just dropped the first trailer of its sweeping remake and it headlines our new trailers of the week.

It is the epitome of a teaser as we only briefly see Aladdin and the beautiful scenery of Agrabah, but it does a great job of getting us excited for the movie.
