A new featurette from Disney’s upcoming live-action adaptation Aladdin has been released. “World of ‘Aladdin’” takes you to the bustling streets of Agrabah that production designer Gemma Jackson (Game of Thrones) brings to life, as well as to the stunning desert vistas of Jordan where the Aladdin production filmed for several weeks in order to capture the natural beauty of the region.
“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 animated classic “Aladdin.”
Aladdin stars Mena Massoud (Jack Ryan) as Aladdin, Naomi Scott (Power Rangers) as Jasmine, Will Smith (Bad Boys) as the iconic Genie, Marwan Kenzari (The Mummy 2017) as the villainous Jafar, Numan Acar (Prison Break) as Head of the guards Akim, Navid Negahban (Homeland) as The Sultan, Nasim Pedrad (SNL) as Dalia, Billy Magnussen (Into The Woods) as Prince Anders, and Alan Tudyk (Ralph Breaks The Internet) as the voice of Iago.
Aladdin will hit theaters on May 24, 2019.
