One of the most loved Disney movies is heading back to the cinemas.
Aladdin is being made into a live-action movie, complete with a star-studded cast.
The 1992 original is just one of many Disney movies being remade with a live cast and CGI combination.
Recent additions to the list are The Lion King, Lilo and Stitch, Dumbo, The Little Mermaid, Lady and the Tramp, and Mulan.
When is Aladdin out in the UK?
Aladdin will be in UK cinemas on May 24, 2019.
The movie has been a long time coming.
Disney first announced plans for a live and CGI adaptation of Aladin back in the autumn of 2016.
But the filming was pushed back when Disney announced it was taking longer than anticipated to find the actors to play Jasmine and Aladdin.
This was not the first bit of controversy Disney would find itself in over Aladdin.
The studio faced criticism in the early months of 2018 when it was reported they planned to use brown face paint to blend extras into the background during certain scenes.
Disney responded to the allegations with a statement to the BBC which read:
“Diversity of our cast and background performers was a requirement and only in a handful of instances when it was a matter of specialty skills, safety and control (special effects rigs, stunt performers and handling of animals) were crew made up to blend in.”
The movie is being released worldwide over the same weekend in May.
Aladdin premiers in France on May 23, and lands lastly in China and Japan on May 25.
Principal photography finally commenced on September 6, 2017, at Longcross Studios in Longcross, Surrey, England.
Filming finished on January 24, 2018.
Some of Aladdin was also shot in Wadi Rum Desert in Jordan.
Reshoots for the film took place over August 2018.
This all brings us to today when, at time of writing, the first Aladdin teaser has been released.
