Disney is offering another glimpse into the upcoming Aladdin film with their second full-length trailer, which premiered on March 12 on Good Morning America.
“You look like a prince on the outside, but I didn’t change anything on the inside,” Smith’s Genie tells Aladdin in the trailer.
The newest trailer focuses on the relationship between Aladdin and Genie.
The first Aladdin trailer became the factor behind many memes because fans were very concerned with Will Smith’s Genie.

The new trailer also features musical favourites from the 1992 original film, including Friend Like Me and A Whole New World.
Mena Massoud, who plays Aladdin in the live-action movie, took to Twitter to share the trailer.
“Still pinch myself sometimes at the idea of playing this iconic character. His journey in this film is only something I could have dreamed of playing with. This trailer is only a sliver of the adventures you’ll see this May. Get ready for a whole new world. # Aladdin,” Massoud wrote.
