movies
Ready to explore a whole new world? A dazzling place you never knew? Walt Disney Pictures just released the first trailer for Guy Ritchie's live-action adaptation of Aladdin, based on the Arab-style folktale—and, of course, the animated film of the same name. Will Smith was the first actor to join the cast, signing on to voice Genie in July 2017. He unveiled the first poster Wednesday, writing, "Lemme out! Can't wait for ya'all to see me blue!" It's fitting that Smith was the one to tease the trailer, as he also shared the first photo of the cast on set in September 2017. Until today's video teaser, no one had seen anything else since.

News, Alex (Chyler Leigh) is shocked to discover that not only is the President (Lynda Carter) coming, but she is already here and literally walking in the door right now. It's safe to say Alex isn't prepared, as she's rolling around on the floor demonstrating fighting techniques and also showing off her snazzy haircut. (OK, she probably isn't actively showing off her new short 'do, but she does look extremely snazzy.) Lucky for us all, the President (who, may we remind you, is played by Lynda Carter) is here with some good news: Alex is doing a great job! Wouldn't we all just love for Lynda Carter to show up and tell us we're doing a great job? Wouldn't life be more fun if t
