The Aladdin teaser trailer we've all been waiting for is here!

Disney have given us a sneak peek of the new live-action Aladdin movie set to be released on May 24, 2019.

In this first glimpse of the new film we see the Cave of Wonders guarded by the stone tiger, similar to the opening of the original Disney cartoon.

The grizzly voiceover announces 'Only one may enter whose worth lies far within...the diamond in the rough'.

We also catch a glimpse of the actor Mena Massoud who will play Aladdin reaching for the genie's lamp at the end of the trailer.

Will Smith has also confirmed whispers that he will be playing the genie in the new film and teased the film on his Instagram this week. He captioned a picture of the genie's lamp with 'LEMME OUT!! Can't wait for y'all to see me BLUE!'

We're yet to know if he'll be as epic as Robin Williams in the original Genie role, but if this trailer is anything to go by, we won't be disappointed.

Aladdin is set for release on May 24, 2019.
