Disney finally drops the teaser trailer for Aladdin

DUBAI: A teaser trailer for Disney’s live action adaptation of “Aladdin” was aired during the 2019 Grammy Awards on Sunday.

The trailer features the first look of the Genie, which actor Will Smith is playing and it is not sitting well with some people. The portrayal of Genie is a bit awkward, bulky, and there is just something not completely right about it — at least according to some bemused social media users. Take a look at the trailer below.


We also get a look at Jafar, Princess Jasmine and the city of Agrabah.

Archaeologists discover Incan tomb in Peru

  • The discovery was made on the Mata Indio dig site in the northern Lambayeque region
  • Despite evidence of looting, archaeologists recovered items including vases

LIMA: Peruvian archaeologists discovered an Incan tomb in the north of the country where an elite member of the pre-Columbian empire was buried, one of the investigators announced Friday.
The discovery was made on the Mata Indio dig site in the northern Lambayeque region, archaeologist Luis Chero told state news agency Andina.
Archaeologists believe the tomb belonged to a noble Inca based on the presence of “spondylus,” a type of sea shell always present in the graves of important figures from the Incan period, which lasted from the 12th to the 16th centuries.
The tomb had been broken into multiple times, possibly in search of treasure. But despite evidence of looting, archaeologists recovered items including vases.
The tomb also had unique architecture including hollows for the placement of idols.
Chero said the findings “demonstrate the majesty and importance of this site,” located 1,000 kilometers north of the capital Lima, and 2,000 kilometers from Cusco — capital of the Inca empire which stretched from southern Colombia to central Chile.
