My latest marketing recap for The Hollywood Reporter covers the campaign for Disney’s live-action (sort of) remake of Aladdin.

This new version, opening during the busy Memorial Day holiday weekend, uses that cast to tell a story that pulls generously from the original while adding some new elements to give the audience something original. The marketing — posters, trailers, billboards, paid social media buys — has relied heavily on nods to the 1992 animated classic to present the movie as something both familiar and as nostalgic as possible.
