A new TV spot from Disney’s live-action adaption of its animated hit feature film “Aladdin” returns to the old adage that it is what is on the inside that counts. The spot includes a few new shots showcasing the magic of The Genie and a good look at Princess Jasmine’s faithful tiger Rajah.
According to movie producers, Jasmine’s bedroom in the palace reflects the intelligence and strength of her character. Set decoration included books, maps, opulent tapestries and pieces of art collected by the princess. The bed in Jasmine’s bedroom was doubled in size to accommodate both the princess and her tiger Rajah. The accompanying bedspread was hand-embroidered in Pakistan to honor Jasmine’s late mother’s kingdom of Shehrabad, which is based in South Asia.
Disney’s “Aladdin” opens in theaters on May 24.
