  • Will Smith reveals first post for Disney's 'Aladdin'

From the looks of the first trailer, released Thursday evening, the film doesn't seem shy about borrowing familiar elements from its predecessor.

"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. People love Aladdin, and while I'm sure there will be some additions and some alterations, overall the new movie will likely bear a strong resemblance to the animated original.

The film is just one of Disney's many live-action remakes of their animated classics and like Beauty and the Beast, this remake will feature a bulk of the original music. With nothing else to go on, I'm not sure if I'm excited for not, but I would like to see Will Smith acting all insane as the Genie. Mena Massoud/Aladdin, Naomi Scott/Princess Jasmine, Marwan Kenzari/Jafar, and I'm over here gettin my Genie on.

This is a true tease, showing just a brief look at Massoud grabbing the lamp and a few shots of the movie's Arabian setting.

For the animated version, the voice cast included Robin Williams, Scott Weinger, Linda Larkin, Jonathan Freeman, Gilbert Gottfried, Jim Cummings, and more. Aladdin is hitting theaters some time in May.

Last year, Will Smith shared pics from the star-studded Aladdin set. Disney is also developing live-action remakes for their streaming service - titles like The Sword in the Stone and Lady and the Tramp.
