Director and shooting
The bold embodiment of the cartoon was performed by the famous and popular Hollywood director Guy Ritchie. His projects include such masterpieces as: The Big Kush (2000), Revolver (2005), Sherlock Holmes (2009). The producers decided that the fil would need to be made non-standard, which is why they invited Guy Ritchie to the post of director.
Guy Ritchie himself, John August and Ron Clements acted as screenwriters. John wrote the script for the popular films Charlie's Angels (2000), Big Fish (2003), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), and Ron Clements worked on scripts for famous Disney paintings such as The Little Mermaid (1989), "Treasure Planet" (2002), as well as the original 1992 Aladdin cartoon.
Musical accompaniment for the picture was created by four-time winner of the Oscar Alan Menken. He also works with Disney cartoons, including the original cartoon, for which, incidentally, received an Oscar in the nomination "Best Song".

Actors and roles
The main role of the resourceful thief Aladdin was played by Mena Massoud, known for the series "Jack Ryan" (since 2018). His lover was played by Naomi Scott, a little-known actress. She may be familiar to our viewers on the projects "Lemonade Mouth" (2011), "Power Rangers" (2017).
Still, in addition to little-known actors, Will Smith himself took part in the film ("I, Robot" 2004, "I-Legend" 2007, "Seven Lives" 2008), who played a powerful genie.
Judging by the photo from the shootings, the genie will not be familiar to us in blue, but more like a person.
Judging by the frames from the trailer in Russian, the film turned out to be unusual and very intriguing, quite consistent with the original cartoon. Colorful pictures, wonderful music perfectly convey the atmosphere of the East, from which it blows adventures and miracles.
