Aladdin Debuts Official Trailer & New Poster

Films nowadays are supposedly being made to be more “culturally appropriate” and yet the upcoming live-action remake of Aladdin seems to just not care how it depicts Arabia with pale-faced lead actors playing the role and Will Smith playing the Fresh Genie of Bel-Air. That being said, director Guy Ritchie seems determined to at least make the movie silly fun and the full official trailer released today seems to indicate that. The fact it has been released only two months before the film’s theatrical release (May 24th) is alarming though. Indicative that Disney didn’t think the movie could survive long-term memory in the minds of audiences. In any case, check out the film’s official trailer below:

Aladdin co-stars Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott, Marwan Kenzari, Navid Negahban, Nasim Pedrad, Billy Magnussen, and Numan Acar. In addition, check out the new poster for the film below:
