Disney has debuted a new TV spot for Aladdin, and it features a few snippets of previously unseen footage from the upcoming remake.
Disney’s latest attempt at showing off their upcoming fantasy-adventure romp comes to us courtesy of their official YouTube channel. The footage in question is a thirty second TV spot for Aladdin, which manages to squeeze in a heavy dose of fast-paced action and prominent nods to the film’s animated source material. There isn’t much here that wasn’t on display in the first full length trailer, but the TV spot focuses less on the humorous relationship between Smith’s genie and Aladdin and more on the adventure ahead for Aladdin and Jasmine.
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 live-action retelling of the 1992 animated classic is now less than two months away from its release date. So far, Disney has been biding their time with regard to promoting the film, and fans of the original are quite curious to see what this version will bring.
Aladdin hits theaters on May 24, 2019.
