Now that tickets are officially on sale for Disney’s live-action Aladdin, the film’s latest TV spot explains Genie’s strict rules about making wishes.
Will Smith’s Genie is schooling Mena Massoud’s Aladdin in the latest look at the movie as he lays down the three rules of making wishes. First, the Genie cannot kill anyone. Second, there’s no making someone fall in love with someone else, and third, there’s no bringing anyone back from the dead.
The live-action version of Disney’s Aladdin is one of many recent live-action Disney adaptations, following The Jungle Book, Dumbo, and this summer’s The Lion King. Like its animated predecessor, Aladdin follows the titular hero (played by Mena Massoud) as he embarks on a quest to retrieve a magic lamp. In doing so, he fails to bring the lamp to the evil Jafar ( Marwan Kenzari), but ends up on an unexpected journey with his pet monkey Abu, a flying carpet, and a magical genie. The film also stars Naomi Scott, Billy Magnussen, Alan Tudyk, Navid Negahban, and Will Smith, and was directed by Snatch and Sherlock Holmes director Guy Ritchie.
Aladdin hits theaters on May 24th.
