Disney’s Aladdin is finally revealing some more secrets, and the latest one includes a new photo of Aladdin and Jasmine presumably meeting for the first time.
It’s just a photo (courtesy of Empire), so there’s not enough to know whether or not that sequence will be completely faithful to the marketplace encounter in the 1993 animated film. Still, it’s enough to get fans excited.
The photo shows both Jasmine and Aladdin standing over the Agrabah marketplace, presumably having just escaped an angry vendor, which is how the two met in the original. The princess is clearly shocked by all of this while Aladdin — having lived his whole life in this sort of environment — maintains a cheerful grin. What’s notable for those who want to compare this to the animated original is Jasmine’s disguise, which is far more elegant than the plain length of cloth her animated counterpart wore.
Fans got to see much more of the anticipated adaptation thanks to a new Super Bowl trailer, which revealed more shots of Jasmine as well as Jafar, Aladdin, the Magic Carpet, and the big reveal of a blue Will Smith Genie.
Guy Ritchie is helming the new Aladdin movie, from a script he co-wrote with Vanessa Taylor and John August. The film stars Mena Massoud (Aladdin), Naomi Scott (Jasmine), Will Smith (the Genie), Billy Magnussen (Prince Anders), Nasim Pedrad (Dalia), Marwan Kenzari (Jafar), Numan Acar (Hakim), and Navid Negahban (Sultan).Aladdin is currently slated to hit theaters on May 24th.
