Sunday's Grammy Awards was one for the books. BTS made history as the first K-pop group to perform at the Grammys, Cardi B's win had everyone's hearts bursting, and Ariana Grande was nowhere to be found. However, one of the biggest takeaways of the night was the newest Aladdin trailer.
The trailer finally revealed images of the long awaited characters of Jafar, Aladdin, Jasmine, and of course, the Genie.
