Disney’s Aladdin: Coming Soon

There are certain things from your childhood that just stick with you. I’m not sure or not if it was my very first movie in the theater, but it’s the first movie I remember going to as a child. My uncle took my sister and me to see Aladdin, and I fell in love. We wore out that VHS watching it over and over, singing the songs, and wishing that one day we would find our prince like Jasmine found Aladdin.

Disney's Aladdin

Of course, I was ecstatic to find out there was going to be a new movie coming out in May of 2019, and the new poster and teaser trailer were just released! Check out the teaser below:

Um….yes, please!!! It’s going to be epic. I can’t wait to be taken back to my childhood and also share more of my love for Disney movies with my daughter. I love it that this amazing story spans generations, and I know it’s going to be amazing. Here is a little more information about the film:

ALADDIN stars Will Smith as the larger-than-life Genie; Mena Massoud as the charming scoundrel Aladdin; Naomi Scott as Jasmine, the beautiful, self-determined princess; Marwan Kenzari as Jafar, the powerful sorcerer; Navid Negahban as the Sultan concerned with his daughter’s future; Nasim Pedrad as Dalia, Princess Jasmine’s free-spirited best friend and confidante; Billy Magnussen as the handsome and arrogant suitor Prince Anders; and Numan Acar as Hakim, Jafar’s right-hand man and captain of the palace guards. The film is produced by Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich with Marc Platt and Kevin De La Noy serving as executive producers. Alan Menken provides the score, which includes new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and lyricists Howard Ashman and Tim Rice and two new songs written by Menken and songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. The film, which was shot on practical stages in London and on location amidst the stunning desert vistas of Jordan, has a talented creative team helping to bring Agrabah to life, including: director of photography Alan Stewart, production designer Gemma Jackson and costume designer Michael Wilkinson.”

YES! I love Will Smith and know he will do an amazing job. I can’t wait for this one folks, it’s going to be magical!
