Enter A Whole New World In This New Trailer For "Aladdin"

Enter A Whole New World In This New Trailer For

Directed by Guy Ritchie, Aladdin, the latest in Disney's live-action interpretations of its animated library, also features Marwan Kenzari as Jafar, Navid Negahban as the Sultan, Nasim Pedrad as Jasmine's friend and handmaiden Dalia, and Billy Magnussen in the new role of Prince Anders.

One thing that everyone does seem to agree on is how smart it was for Disney to end the trailer with Aladdin and Jasmin's magic carpet ride, scored to Alan Menken and Tim Rice's Oscar-winning favorite "A Whole New World".

The trailer gives us our best look yet at the characters of Jasmine (Naomi Scott) and Aladdin (Mena Massoud), as well as the fictional city of Agrabah. The film's previous look had met with severe backlash over the computer-generated look of Will Smith as the blue-coloured Genie, with users across social media having a field day generating memes and Photoshop edits.

Fox News has on many previous occasions has tolerated Islamophobic and birther comments from its hosts and commentators. Pirro's comments echo a common anti-Islamic belief that Muslims have allegiances to Sharia law over American law.

Disney's live-action adaptation of "Aladdin" opens in theaters May 24. Many are admitting that they judged the movie far too harshly, and that the new footage has turned them from anti-live-action-Aladdin to all-pro. Watch the new trailer above and check out the film's poster below. "Chills", one fan wrote in the comments of the trailer on YouTube. "So, I think people are going to love it". Yes, even the actor's not-menacing-at-all voice.

It's safe to say that the dubious public reaction to the first Aladdin trailer isn't exactly what Disney wished for.

A rather note-worthy moment in the trailer was Will Smith's appearance. Will Smith plays Genie, Naomi Scott plays Princess Jasmine and Mena Massoud plays Aladdin.
