Featuring interviews by Smith, Massoud, producer Dan Lin and director Guy Ritchie among others, the 119-seconds long clip chronicles the ordeal that the entire cast and crew had to endure to pull it all off under the sweltering heat of Jordan.
Production designer Gemma Jackson also enunciates the construction of the fictitious kingdom of Agrabah slap bang in the middle of the Wadi Rum desert, where the movie has been extensively shot.
Interspersed in between these bytes are the movie’s leading triumvirate of Smith, Massoud and Scott sharing their experience of working in a film of such grandiose scale and also some new and breathtaking visions from the film.
