Disney’s Live-Action Aladdin First Teaser Trailer

Walt Disney Studios debut the first trailer for Aladdin live action film. The teaser trailer gives us the first look at Mena Massoud as Aladdin.

Synopsis

“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, the film is written by John August and Ritchie based on Disney’s “Aladdin.”

“Aladdin” stars Will Smith as the larger-than-life Genie; Mena Massoud as the charming scoundrel Aladdin; Naomi Scott as Jasmine, the beautiful, self-determined princess; Marwan Kenzari as Jafar, the powerful sorcerer; Navid Negahban as the Sultan concerned with his daughter’s future; Nasim Pedrad as Dalia, Princess Jasmine’s free-spirited best friend and confidante; Billy Magnussen as the handsome and arrogant suitor Prince Anders; and Numan Acar as Hakim, Jafar’s right-hand man and captain of the palace guards. The film is produced by Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich with Marc Platt and Kevin De La Noy serving as executive producers. Alan Menken provides the score, which includes new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and lyricists Howard Ashman and Tim Rice and two new songs written by Menken and songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. The film, which was shot on practical stages in London and on location amidst the stunning desert vistas of Jordan, has a talented creative team helping to bring Agrabah to life, including: director of photography Alan Stewart, production designer Gemma Jackson and costume designer Michael Wilkinson.

Yesterday, Will Smith, who plays Genie in the live-action film, revealed the teaser poster.

Disney’s Aladdin will open in theaters on May 24, 2019.

Kingdom Hearts 3 – TGS 2018 Stage Show Reveals New Gameplay & Information

Today, Square Enix held a stage presentation for Kingdom Hearts 3 at Tokyo Game Show 2018. The stage show featured numerous gameplay clips of Sora fighting, “summon” links, mini-games, and more. If you don’t want to see the Sora and Aqua clip, we suggest that you don’t scroll down to the very bottom of the page to see it.

During the show, director Tetsuya Nomura and co-director Tai Yasue answered a couple interesting questions that fans were wondering. When asked if this will be the final Kingdom Hearts game, Nomura said that this isn’t the end of the series, though it will be the conclusion of the Xehanort Saga.

As expected from a title in the Kingdom Hearts series, the upcoming entry will contain a secret ending, which Nomura did not give any details due to spoilers. He did mentioned that they are trying to do something different, and are thinking of making a DLC that has a secret ending of some kind.

Regarding online elements, Nomura said that they do not plan to add any until after the completion of the game. The focus was to finish developing the core-game before deciding if they intend to add online features.

After the show concluded, Tai Yasue told fans that the game will feature over 10 worlds. The demos only showcased roughly 1/4 or 1/3 of the overall size of each world (via @aibo_ac7/).

Kingdom Hearts 3 will feature over twenty mini-games. One of them shows Sora cooking with Remy assisting him.

For those wondering how old Ventus, Aqua, Tera and Xehanort were in Birth By Sleep, we finally got an official answer to that.

  • Ventus – 16 years Old.
  • Aqua – About 18 years Old.
  • Terra – Around 20 years old.
  • Young Xehanort – 18-20 years old.
  • Xehanort – 80 years or something (Everyone laughed)
