The plot appears to follow the same story of the animated original, which sees the “street rat” Aladdin (Mena Massoud) enter the Cave of Wonders to retrieve a magic lamp at Jafar’s request and using it to become a prince and date Princess Jasmine. Meanwhile, the princess is set to be wed to a number of royalty suitors at a parade, all looking to marry her for political reasons.
Although the live-action Aladdin film will follow the same beats as the classic animated feature, director Guy Ritchie and writer John August have stated the movie will still be an “ambitious and non-traditional” take on the story.
Check out the footage above and catch Aladdin when it premieres May 24.
