After viewing the trailer a few more times, some additional observations: 1) In the end of it where we briefly see the credits, NEW LYRICS BY BENJ PASEK & JUSTIN PAUL is listed above LYRICS BY HOWARD ASHMAN & TIM RICE. We already knew that Pasek and Paul were doing new lyrics, although I'm a bit surprised, since they are the newcomers to the project, that they would be listed ahead of Ashman and Rice. 2) Screenplay credit is listed as John August and Guy Ritchie. But Disney previously hired Vanessa Taylor (who co-wrote The Shape of Water) to do a rewritre on August's script. Since she's not credited, I wonder if they tossed her script. 3) Who is doing the voice of the Cave? It sounds extremely similar to the 1992 version, where the voice of the Cave was provided by Frank Welker, who also voiced Abu and Rajah (we still need to know if they're in this film or not) , and that dialogue for the Cave is exactly the same as in the scene from the original when Jafar sends Gazeem in to get the lamp. 4) I'm actually kind of impressed that Disney is keeping the Genie in the lamp for now. Since Smith is the only recognizable movie star actor in the film, I kind of expected him to immediately be the focus of the marketing out of the gate. Doing it this way will make people even more curious to see him whenever they let him out in a future trailer. He's getting in-front-of-the-title billing in the credits at the end of the trailer, but has no presence in this trailer at all. Good on Disney for being restrained in not showing him this early. 5) I just want to reiterate that we now know that Iago is in it. I almost screamed at my computer when I saw him. Just that confirmation would have been enough to thrill me tonight even if the rest of it hadn't been good. 6) That lamp definitely looks super fancy and not like a "beat-up, worthless piece of junk." I always kind of liked the symbolism, which ties into the diamond in the rough angle, of the lamp looking plain and ordinary but having inside it the Genie with all his awesome power. I guess they just wanted to go for a fancy lamp and ignored that point. Oh well. It still looks nice. Can you all tell I'm excited?
