Synopsis: See Disney’s 1992 animated classic through new eyes as the story of Aladdin leaps into live-action. Mena Massoud plays the street urchin Aladdin, who falls for Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott) the moment he lays eyes on her. But this Jasmine calls her own shots — which doesn’t mean she doesn’t have to worry about the Vizier Jafar, played by Marwan Kenzari.
Aladdin makes a friend who might help everyone. Well, everyone but Jafar. The young hero finds a lamp containing Genie, a blue Jinn who can grant wishes and express himself through magic. Will Smith plays Genie in this bold and energetic new vision of Aladdin from Snatch and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. director Guy Ritchie.
