First Official Look At Disney’s Live-Action Aladdin Revealed

Walt Disney Pictures has revealed the first photos from director Guy Ritchie’s upcoming live-action remake of Aladdin. The photos give us our first look at the main cast including Will Smith’s Genie wearing a newly designed costume quite different from the original animated film. Check out the photos below! (via Entertainment Weekly)

The Aladdin cast includes: Two-time Oscar nominee Will Smith (Ali, Men in Black) as the Genie who has the power to grant three wishes to whoever possesses his magic lamp; Mena Massoud (Amazon’s Jack Ryan) as Aladdin, the hapless but lovable street rat who is smitten with the Sultan’s daughter; Naomi Scott (Power Rangers) as Princess Jasmine, the Sultan’s beautiful daughter who wants to have a say in how she lives her life; Marwan Kenzari (Murder on the Orient Express) as Jafar, an evil sorcerer who devises a nefarious plot to unseat the Sultan and rule Agrabah himself; Navid Negahban (Homeland) as the Sultan, the ruler of Agrabah who is eager to find a proper husband for his daughter, Jasmine; Nasim Pedrad (Saturday Night Live) as Dalia, Princess Jasmine’s hand maiden and confidante; Billy Magnussen (Into the Woods) as Prince Anders, a suitor from Skanland and potential husband for Princess Jasmine; and Numan Acar (Homeland) as Hakim, Jafar’s right-hand man and head of the palace guards.

Aladdin is directed by Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes, The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) from a screenplay by John August (Dark Shadows, Big Fish) based on the 1992 animated film Aladdin and stories from “One Thousand and One Nights.” The producer is Dan Lin (The LEGO Movie) with Golden Globe winner Marc Platt (La La Land), Jonathan Eirich (Death Note) and Kevin De La Noy (The Dark Knight Rises) serving as executive producers. Eight-time Academy Award-winning composer Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid) provides the score, which includes new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Oscar-winning lyricists Howard Ashman (Little Shop of Horrors) and Tim Rice (The Lion King) as well as two new songs written by Menken and Oscar and Tony Award-winning songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land, Dear Evan Hansen).

Aladdin was nominated for five Academy Awards and won two, including Best Original Score and Best Original Song for “A Whole New World.” Based on the Middle-Eastern folktale Aladdin and the Magic Lamp, the 1992 animated film was co-directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, who had previously-directed The Little Mermaid and would go on to make other Disney classics, including Hercules, Treasure Planet, The Princess and the Frog, and Moana. It famously featured Robin Williams as the film’s genie, along with Scott Weinger as Aladdin, Jonathan Freeman as Jafar, Linda Larkin as Princess Jasmine, Frank Welker as Aladdin’s monkey pal Abu, plus Douglas Seale as The Sultan, and Gilbert Gottfried as Iago.

The film is set to debut in theaters May 24, 2019.

Cyclops Print Works To Release Aladdin, Tomorrowland & Beauty And The Beast Prints On October 16, 2015

Cyclops Print Works is proud to present two brand new limited-edition serigraphs to celebrate the release of Aladdin and Disney’s Tomorrowland on Blu-Ray/DVD.

Mark Englert’s, “You Ain’t Never Had A Friend Like Me” is a gorgeous 11-color serigraph; plus, it features metallic inks. Mark continues his series of Disney art prints depicting one of the classic, musical moments of the film.  We see Aladdin looking up at the Genie as he towers above him after coming out of the lamp for the first time. This piece is a wonderful complement to his show stopping serigraph from this year’s D23 Expo, “She Really Is A Funny Girl,” which will be available online for the first time!

For Tomorrowland, Disney Animation’s extremely talented artist, Joe Dunn, created a wonderful interpretation of the Utopian city depicted in the film.  Make sure you keep your eyes peeled, because Joe added all sorts of clever references and easter eggs to the art, and these are sure to please Disney fans. This 10 color serigraph utilizes a split fountain to create the beautiful color blends in the background.  As if that weren’t already enough, Joe will also be hand signing each piece of this limited run.

All three serigraphs will be available today (10/16/2015) at 12 PM PST at: www.cyclopsprintworks.com
