The first substantial peek at Disney’s live remake of Aladdin seemed like it might be cause for alarm, particularly where the big blue form of Will Smith’s Genie came in. This trailer feels a bit more familiar….
Though, you should prepare yourselves for a “Friend Like Me” rap:
The CGI is still pretty off-putting—even “A Whole New World”s carpet ride isn’t spared the awkwardness)—but at least this is establishing the sense of humor that was the animated feature’s hallmark. (Fresh Prince joke ftw!) And we finally get a real glimpse of Aladdin and Jasmine! Who are adorable.
Aladdin will hit theaters May 24th!
