Will Smith makes his debut as the iconic Genie in the first full-length trailer for Disney’s live-action remake of Aladdin. The 60-second teaser opens with Marwen Kenzari’s Jafar kicking off the search for the magical lamp in the Cave of Wonders. Other scenes show Mena Massoud’s Aladdin finding and rubbing the lamp--and being introduced to Smith’s bulked up blue Genie for the first time. Naomi Scott’s Princess Jasmine and the lavish city of Agrabah also make brief appearances in the teaser. Directed by Guy Ritchie, Aladdin hits theaters on May 24, 2019.
