Ever since it was announced that Disney was turning Aladdin into a live-action movie, we’ve been waiting for a first look at the film. On Thursday, Disney finally released the first teaser trailer for the 1992 Guy Ritchie-directed remake, and it’s even more magical than you’d imagined. In the clip, we get a glimpse of Aladdin inside the Cave of Wonder where he obtains the magic lamp, and we also see Agrabah for the first time.

The teaser trailer opens with a bird’s shadow gently gliding over the desert until Agrabah, the city of mystery and enchantment, appears in the distance. The bird, which turns out to be a parrot, leads toward a deep, ominous voice. “Only one may enter here,” roars Cave of Wonders, as a shadowy figure enters. It ends with the appearance of Mena Massoud as Aladdin who holds a mystical lamp with a trapped genie.
