The first Aladdin trailer is here

The first trailer for Aladdin premiered tonight during Thursday Night Football, and is now online for your viewing pleasure. Those who were hoping for a first look at Will Smith as The Genie might be a little disappointed, however, as this preview is very strictly a teaser. The movie opens everywhere Memorial Day.

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 Aladdin.
