Adjust Comment Print

The star on Wednesday revealed the live-action musical's first poster. Mena Massoud makes his debut as Aladdin in the teaser trailer! From the looks of the first trailer, released Thursday evening, the film doesn't seem shy about borrowing familiar elements from its predecessor. The final seconds of the teaser features Aladdin just about to rub the Genie's lamp. We'll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding Aladdin as more information becomes available. The Suicide Squad actor, who will be playing the magical Genie in the much-awaited film, took to his Instagram account to share the first poster.

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.

Fans will have to wait until next May to truly see what Ritchie has in store for the remake. While out in the land of the living, Genie helps Aladdin capture the attention (and later the heart) of Jasmine, the princess of Agrabah whose father, the Sultan, desperately wants to find her someone to marry.
