Disney has just unveiled the official full-length trailer for "Aladdin," the eagerly anticipated live-action musical remake of the 1992 animated classic.

This version stars Will Smith as the Genie, and we're now getting our best look yet at Smith as the CGI-generated blue-skinned wise-cracking deity, who sometime takes human form.

Directed by Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., King Arthur: Legend of the Sword), "Aladdin" casts Egyptian-Canadian actor Mena Massoud (from the Hulu series "Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan") as the titular street urchin, who is granted three wishes after freeing a magical blue Genie (Smith) from an ancient lamp. And he soon uses one of his wishes to transform himself into a prince in order to win the heart of the beautiful princess, Jasmine (played here by "Power Rangers" star Naomi Scott).

"You look like a prince on the outside," Smith's Genie says to Aladdin in the above trailer. "But I didn't change anything on the inside."

Meanwhile, Dutch-Tunisian actor Marwan Kenzari (Murder on the Orient Express) co-stars as the nefarious power-hungry sorcerer Ja'far. Rounding out the cast is Navid Negahban (as Princess Jasmine's father, The Sultan), Nasim Pedrad (as Princess Jasmine's best friend, Dalia), and Billy Magnussen (as Prince Anders).

The film will feature an original score by Oscar-winning "Aladdin" composer Alan Menken, including new recordings of those classic "Aladdin" songs and two brand-new songs written by Menken and Oscar-winning "La La Land" and "The Greatest Showman" songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

Co-written by Ritchie and John August (Big Fish, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), Disney's "Aladdin" opens nationwide on May 24th.

A thrilling and vibrant live-action adaptation of Disney's animated classic, "Aladdin" is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future. Directed by Guy Ritchie, who brings his singular flair for fast-paced, visceral action to the fictitious port city of Agrabah, "Aladdin" is written by John August and Ritchie based on Disney's "Aladdin."
