Welcome back to Agrabah, friends! Disney just dropped the very first trailer for the live-action remake of the classic movie Aladdin, and it looks nothing short of magical.
The Sultan's kingdom is an absolutely beautiful, golden oasis in the middle of all that sprawling desert sand.
And if you're wondering if any of our fave animal companions are going to be in the movie, the answer is a resounding yes. In the trailer, Iago flies over the city to the tune of "Arabian Nights," only to arrive at the Cave of Wonders — AKA the lion head with the extremely creepy voice.
We also get a sneak peek of Egyptian-born Canadian actor Mena Massoud as everyone's favorite rags-to-riches prince Aladdin. And he looks spot-on! He should probably lose the shirt, though.
Aside from the not-shirtless Aladdin, the live-action movie's version of Princess Jasmine will also be updated. British-Indian actress Naomi Scott, who is set to play the fierce, tiger-taming princess, told The Hollywood Reporter : "She’s a multidimensional woman, and she doesn’t have to just be one thing. So in this movie, you see her go on such a roller coaster, as opposed to her one goal being to fall in love or get married."
The remake, directed by Guy Ritchie, also stars Will Smith as Genie and Marwan Kenzari as Jafar.
It will also feature controversial new characters, with Billy Magnussen playing Prince Anders and Nasim Pedrad as Dalia.
Aladdin is set to open on Nov. 24, 2019.
