Disney has been hot on the live-action fad in the last few years. Since 2015, the media giant has churned out four adaptations - Cinderella, The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, and Christopher Robins - at least once per year. \r\n\r\nUnsurprisingly, now that Disney's experienced success with the previous remakes, the Mickey Mouse House has more projects lined up. One of which is the highly anticipated live-action version of 1995\u2019s Aladdin. \r\n\r\nAladdin is slated to be released in 2019. With the impending premiere less than a year away, the studio has been ramping up its efforts to promote the film. Recently, much to the excitement of Disney\u2019s fans, the first teaser trailer has been dropped. \r\n\r\nLike most initial trailers, the first teaser for Aladdin doesn\u2019t reveal much about the movie. Nevertheless, it seems like the feature would not deviate too much from its source material. Front and center is Iago, Jafar\u2019s right-hand parrot, as it scales the magnificent desert city of Agrabah. The trailer also gives audiences a first look of the iconic Disney street rat played by Mena Massoud.\r\n\r\nThe trailer was less than a minute and a half long. However, it was enough to incite even more anticipation for fans who have been waiting for years for another Aladdin movie. \r\n\r\nAside from the trailer, the cast and crew of the upcoming adaptation have also released details about their impending project. In fact, Princess Jasmine herself, aka Naomi Scott, have already gushed about her role as a royalty from Agrabah. \r\n\r\nIn a interview with The Hollywood Reporter late last year, Scott was ecstatic about getting to play the role of Jasmine. The relative newbie enjoyed being able to give life to a Disney princess - to make someone like Jasmine more three-dimensional: \r\n\r\n\u201cI love what Disney is doing at the moment with their princesses \u2014 going from animation to live-action and making those animated characters real human beings. Being a female character is also about being a real person, and guess what? [She] can be strong and have fun, but also get it wrong and be emotional. She\u2019s a multidimensional woman, and she doesn\u2019t have to just be one thing.\u201d\r\n\r\nJasmine is notably the only female role in the animated version of Aladdin. Thankfully, the live-action version is about to change that by introducing Jasmine\u2019s handmaiden Dalia - played by SNL\u2019s Nassim Perdad.\r\n\r\nAccording to Scott, Dalia\u2019s character is near and dear to her heart. For her, it is important for young women to see that their relationship with other women is just as important as every other relationship:\r\n\r\n\u201cI never realized it, but in the animation, Jasmine is really the only female character \u2014 isn\u2019t that crazy?. The Dalia character is so important to this movie because she\u2019s the only other female character. She may be the handmaiden but they\u2019re best friends; they\u2019re so close because they\u2019ve grown up together. So we wanted people to watch the movie and see Jasmine\u2019s relationship with another woman, and be like, \u2018Ah, that\u2019s what I\u2019m like with my girlfriend,\u2019 or \u2018We would so do that if I was in that position.\u2019 That\u2019s something that\u2019s missing from the animation.\u201d\r\n\r\nAladdin would be premiering on May 24, 2019.
