Fans, however, are still sceptical that the new film will live up to its animated predecessor, with several complaining on social media that the movie looks “cheap”.

wtf was the budget on the costumes in the new “aladdin” movie, $10?

How have they managed to make Aladdin look so cheap? It's almost impressive.

The live action Aladdin looks cheaply made, terribly casted, and rushed.

It wasn’t all negativity, though, with some fans taking to Twitter in order to suggest they have been won over by the new trailer.

I'm as jaded as they get when it comes to these remakes but even I can't resist ALADDIN when "A Whole New World" kicks in.I'm only a man.

Brendan Foley@TheTrueBrendanF

If nothing else, this trailer finally makes ALADDIN seem like a *movie* (like a Guy Ritchie movie, even!) as opposed to the uncanny valley-laced theme park show the earlier spots suggested.
