While there is no Genie yet in the trailer, we do get a glimpse of his home as Aladdin reaches for it in the Cave of Wonders. Iago also offers up a bird's eye view of Agrabah and the sweeping desert vistas that surround it. Honestly, the whole thing looks visually stunning, already. And Aladdin, the only principal character we see, certainly looks the part.
Like the original, Al is described by Disney as a "hapless but lovable street rat who is smitten with the Sultan's daughter" and stumbles upon a magic lap inhabited by a wish-granting genie. Jafar is still up to no good, devising "a nefarious plot to unseat the Sultan and rule Agrabah himself."
Navid Negahban ("Homeland") plays Jasmine's father in the film, while Billy Magnussen ("Into the Woods") will appear as Prince Andrews, a new character and potential suitor for the princess. Nasim Pedrad ("SNL") plays one of her hand maidens.
