Woohooo! I’m so excited. I just watched the first TV spot for Disney’s upcoming live-action adaptation Aladdin! Have you seen it yet? It includes new, never-before-seen footage and you get a good look at Will Smith as Genie.
Looks to have everything we love about the animated Aladdin plus more! I will admit, that I miss Robin Williams but am excited to see what Will Smith can do with the character. I think he’ll do an awesome job. We’ll find out soon enough.
We just didn’t have a chance to do a reaction video for this one but for everything else we’ve done, make sure to check out our Family That Games YouTube channel.

A thrilling and vibrant live-action adaptation of Disney’s animated classic, “Aladdin” is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future. Directed by Guy Ritchie, who brings his singular flair for fast-paced, visceral action to the fictitious port city of Agrabah, “Aladdin” is written by John August and Ritchie based on Disney’s “Aladdin.” The film stars Will Smith as the Genie; Mena Massoud as Aladdin; Naomi Scott as Jasmine; Marwan Kenzari as Jafar; Navid Negahban as the Sultan; Nasim Pedrad as Dalia; Billy Magnussen as Prince Anders; and Numan Acar as Hakim.
“Aladdin” is produced by Dan Lin, p.g.a., and Jonathan Eirich, p.g.a., with Marc Platt and Kevin De La Noy serving as executive producers. Eight-time Academy Award®-winning composer Alan Menken provides the score, which includes new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Oscar®-winning lyricists Howard Ashman and Tim Rice and includes two new songs written by Menken and Oscar and Tony Award®-winning songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
