While the first teaser for the hotly-anticipated remake showed off the kingdom of Agrabah and the Cave of Wonders, this trailer shows more of Aladdin's world. Along with Genie, the preview shows brief glimpses of Agrabah, Jafar and Iago, and the first meeting of Aladdin and Jasmine.

While Massoud has said that this version of Aladdin won't be a comedy or musical, the film will include a mix of new and original songs. This is one of three of Disney's planned live action remakes for the year, with Dumbo beginning things in March and The Lion King closing out in July.
