Our first look at Disney’s live-action Aladdin remake is here.
The trailer gives us our first brief glimpse of the sands of Agrabah, our titular hero (played by Mena Massoud), the ever-so-famous lamp, the Cave of Wonders and everyone’s favourite macaw, Iago.
Many will be pleased to hear that the Alan Menken is back for the score and I can’t lie, when the brass hits for Friend Like Me in the trailer above, my inner 7-year old started screaming, trying to calm the adult cynic in me.
Disney have a whole slate of live-action remakes lined up in the coming years with the Beyonce-featuring The Lion King, Tim Burton-helmed Dumbo and Liu Yifei-led Mulan all receiving the nostalgia-laced makeovers.
Disney’s Aladdin is in cinemas May 24, 2019.
