2019 is filled with all kinds of Disney movies some looking to wrap up long time stories and others looking to bring us nostalgia by re-making classics. The glamour of the royal procession is balanced by the darkness of Jafar's sinister plans in this small clip.

Smith himself recognized the challenge of taking on the role of Genie in the wake of Williams, who was a major draw for the original film.

The live-action version of Aladdin follows a string of Disney remakes, including Cinderella, Beauty And The Beast and Maleficent.

Alongside Smith, "Power Rangers" star Naomi Scott stars as Princess Jasmine and Canadian actor Mena Massoud stars as Aladdin. Will Smith aka Genie appears in the last 20 seconds of the trailer and his genie avatar will definitely take you by surprise. "Genie, wishes, lamp? None of that ring a bell?" says Genie, as Aladdin backs off in confusion.
