The Chinese New Year has officially begun and Disney has celebrated it by releasing a new series of posters that includes one for the upcoming live-action remake of Aladdin!
The poster in question is simple in design but striking in execution. It features the lamp itself in a familiar design but clearly more eastern in its aesthetic. We see what appears to be smoke coming out of the lamp. In the background, we also see what appears to be the sun setting and a number of waves crashing in the background.
You can see the full poster below:

Guy Ritchie has directed Disney’s live-action Aladdin from a script written by John August (Big Fish) and Game of Thrones writer Vanessa Taylor. August and Ritchie are also producing the film with Dan Lin. Marc Platt (La La Land) and Chris Montan (Frozen) are consulting for the project with Jonathan Eirich (Deathnote) serving as executive producer.
The cast features Mena Massoud who stars in the titular role of Aladdin, as well as Smith as the Genie, Power Rangers star Naomi Scott as Jasmine, Numan Acar (Homeland) as Hakim, the head of the guards and Jafar’s right-hand man, and Marwan Kenzari as Jafar. In addition, the live-action remake features new characters made just for the film played by Billy Magnussen (Game Night) and former Saturday Night Live comedienne Nasim Pedrad.
“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.
Aladdin is currently slated to hit theaters May 24, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for more news regarding the movie!
