The first full trailer for Disney’s live-action “Aladdin” dropped 2 days ago and the response has been largely positive.
For those who had doubts about the upcoming Disney remake, they were reassured once more. The new visual draws the spotlight on the relationship between Aladdin and Genie.
The two-minute video clip shows us the many quips from Will Smith and cute bonding moments between his character and Aladdin. This goes to show that this version of Genie is more than just a meme.
Now that audiences have gotten a proper look into the colourful mythical city of Agrabah, it’s starting to remind us of the fun, snappy tale of adventure that we all know and love. Disney fans have also notice the many nods and classic moments that pay homage to the 1992 original.
