‘Aladdin’ Trailer: Will Smith Finally Loses the Blue Face

The clip opens with the titular thief (Mena Massoud) engaging in some parkour-esque stunts as he evades his pursuers. Later, after he falls for Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott), we get glimpses of Bollywood-style musical numbers. Looming over it all is Will Smith as the Genie, who puts a Fresh Prince-like spin on “Friend Like Me,” a showstopper indelibly performed by Robin Williams in the original.

Smith is seen for the first time in the Genie’s human mode — without a blue face — and the promo also features Abu the monkey playing a trumpet, a magic carpet shaking maracas, and Scott and Massoud crooning the Oscar-winning song “A Whole New World.” Plus, camels and tigers and elephants — oh, my!

The trailer concludes with fireworks that look as if they came straight from Walt Disney World, aptly enough. Directed by Guy Ritchie, “Aladdin” opens in theaters May 24.
