“Hold your breath, it gets better” is what some of us were crossing our fingers and saying after the first underwhelming teasers for Disney’s live-action remake of Aladdin were released.
At long last the first full trailer for Aladdin has arrived and we can let out that breath because it’s safe to say, it does get better. The trailer gives us our first listen of the music in the film including snippets of the classics “Friend Like Me” and “A Whole New World.” We also get to see Will Smith as the genie in his blue form as well as his human form which he takes on to blend in while guiding Aladdin. We’re assuming having the genie take on the form of a bee and other things to blend in would have just been, well, too cartoon-y.
We have to admit, the trailer gives us the nostalgia feels especially with those musical number sequences, we love Abu and that magic carpet ride looks like a whole lot of fun. The film is now shaping up to look like a good time and it has many twitter fans changing their tune after ragging on the initial teasers.
I'll be honest, after the teaser with Genie, i thought this new trailer would be worse. My opinion of this movie has changed COMPLETELY. Just goes to show, you cannot judge a book by it's cover. If you watch this new trailer, you may look forward to this. I wanna watch this now. https://t.co/guAC92sZ17

I TOLD YOU GUYS DISNEY WAS GONNA SHOWCASE THE MUSIC! And guess what?! THIS IS AN ACTUAL GOOD TRAILER! Genie looks a lot better, the effects look nice, and the singing ain’t too shabby! Maybe you can turn the ship around Disney! https://t.co/cRPkgJkoyg

Just as I expected, the full trailer for ALADDIN looks much better than the short clip that everyone was shitting on a few weeks ago. I'm actually kinda looking forward to it now that I've seen a bit more. Even the Genie looks a lot better when you see more than 3 seconds of him.

Why wasn't this the first trailer released??
Genie looks MUCH better and I'm really digging this movie now.
Still not sold on Jafar though but that's my only complaint.#Aladdin https://t.co/BigZmIqDBN

The cast, Jafar, the songs, the magic, Jafar, (the CARPET!!) and even the much-hated-upon genie 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

This movie looks fine. The trailer had funny and charming moments and I still want to see how Guy Ritchie pulls it off. To all the crybabies out there, stop complaining and either give it a chance or don’t watch it. The original will not be erased because of this movie. #Aladdin https://t.co/FFgi61ca1w

In other exciting Aladdin news, it’s been announced that Alan Tudyk will be voicing Jafar’s wise-cracking side kick Iago in the film. Tudyk is no stranger to voicing roles for Disney as he appeared as KnowsMore in Ralph Breaks the Internet, HeiHei in Moana, and Duke Weaselton in Frozen to name a few.
What are your thoughts on the new trailer for Aladdin? Will you be seeing the movie when it releases May 24?
