The Disney animated classic of 1992, Aladdin, will have a new film with real actors directed by Guy Ritchie, and will hit theaters on May 24 this year. The company had already released the first trailer in mid-October of last year. But during the Grammy awards gala, which have been held on Sunday night in Los Angeles, Disney has released a new preview of the film in which appears, for the first time, the actor Will Smith interpreting the Genius. The video also features actor Mena Massoud, who plays Alladin, and actress Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmin. At the end of the new trailer Aladdin rubs the lamp and from it comes the character that Will Smith plays with his first words: "Do not you really know who I am? Genius, wishes, lamp … Does not that sound like you?"
The original film, directed by John Musker and Ron Clements, raised more than 504 million dollars (446 million euros) worldwide. Ritchie, in directing this new version, joins the many filmmakers who are making adaptations of Disney's animated classics, such as Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King or Dumbo. In addition, the latter also presented a trailer during the Grammy ceremony.
