Disney is keeping the live-action remakes coming. The live-action remake of the 1992 classic ‘Aladdin‘ is scheduled to hit theaters May 24, 2019.
And since we’re just six months away now, Disney decided it was time to hit us with the first teaser trailer.
Newcomer Mena Massoud has the titular role. Will Smith is taking on the role as the Genie and Marwan Kenzari will portray Jafar.
John August wrote the script for this remake, which is pretty exciting for the screenwriting nerds of the world. For those who don’t know, August is known for being very active online with the screenwriting community. He even has a podcast with fellow screenwriter Craig Mazin called Scriptnotes.
So yeah, it’s nice to see him land such a big title. We’re sure he got a nice little paycheck.
It’ll be interesting to see how fans and critics react to this movie. So far, Disney has had a lot of success with their live-action remakes. Can they keep it going?
