Aladdin is back in an exciting new movie

The streets of Agrabah are home to Aladdin (Mena Massoud), a lovable street kid who wants to leave his life of crime behind. Across town, the Sultan’s daughter, Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott), has dreams of her own. She dreams of experiencing life beyond the palace walls and help the people of Agrabah, but her father is very protective. The Sultan wants to choose a husband for his daughter, while Jafar, his advisor and a powerful sorcerer, is frustrated with the Sultan’s ideas on Agrabah’s future and is devising a plan to take the throne himself. 

Aladdin comes to Jasmine’s rescue when she visits the market. Following her back to the palace, he gets caught up in Jafar’s evil scheme and comes into possession of a magic oil lamp intended for Jafar and accidentally conjures up the Genie (Will Smith) inside. The Genie grants Aladdin’s wish to become Prince Ali, so he can make the princess fall in love with him. Aladdin, the Genie and Jasmine start a dangerous and exciting adventure that will test their faith in themselves and their love for one another.

Aladdin is at a cinema near you now.
