Will Smith is living his best life
Any Disney movie made between 1987 – 2002 are always going to be nostalgic for me because it’s probable that I watched them with my little sister, and memorized all the songs, and maybe even possibly danced a little too hard through them. Aladdin is no different. To have Will Smith starring as the bigger than life Genie of the Lamp too? She would FLIP! Alas, I’ll have to do the flipping for her.
Here’s the first peek for the movie. Check it out!
Before I give you all the rundown of the movie (as if you don’t know it already) let me just bring your attention to the fact that Pasek & Paul are writing new songs for the movie. After The Greatest Showman, they can do no wrong, but I am hoping that some of the songs the movie is known for
ALADDIN is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future. Directed by Guy Ritchie, who brings his singular flair for fast-paced, visceral action to the fictitious port city of Agrabah, the film is written by John August and Ritchie based on Disney’s ALADDIN.
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.
