AceShowbiz - From the studio that has successfully presented "Beauty and the Beast (2017)" and "Mary Poppins Returns" (2018), comes another musical picture. A live-action remake of Disney's classic animated movie, "Aladdin" casts Will Smith in the key role of Genie that brings advantage with his star power. While fans were divided over Smith's version of the blue Genie, he won over some cynics when he showcased his twist on the song "Friend Like Me" in the first full-length trailer.
The trailer also shows scenes that recreate some of the iconic moments from the much-loved 1992 film, which is good news for fans of the original movie. The vivid and sparkly visuals perfectly encapsulate the enchanting Agrabah as viewers are taken on a magical ride through Aladdin's lively adventures. Since music is also a critical element in the movie, it enlists only the best in the field, Alan Menken, who composed the score and co-wrote songs for the original film, and award-winning songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul ("La La Land", "The Greatest Showman"), to write new songs for the remake.
