A new TV spot for the upcoming live-action Aladdin movie provides a better look at Mena Massoud as the titular character and Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine.
The next big screen, live-action Disney remake is Guy Ritchie’s Aladdin. The film has had a mixed marketing campaign with the first trailer initially turning fans off mainly due to the blue version of Will Smith’s Genie. However, with the second trailer showing more of the film, many fans have quickly gotten back on board.
Today, Disney released a new television spot for Aladdin, focusing on the chemistry between Mena Massoud’s Aladdin and Naomi Scott’s Princess Jasmine. You can check out the TV spot below.
The TV spot really highlights the chemistry between Naomi Scott’s Princess Jasmine and Mena Massoud’s Aladdin which was something many people were worried about. The previous trailers have been very light on the romance between the two characters, but this one focuses on that. The spot also reveals new looks at the city of Agrabah and Marwan Kenzari as the villainous Jafar. While we can expect basic story elements from the original animated film, it seems the live-action remake is full of new things that could possibly set the film apart from the original.

Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
Directed by Jon Favreau from a script written by Jeff Nathanson, The Lion King stars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.
The Lion King will be released in theaters on July 19, 2019.
