After going back and forth on its casting decisions, Disney has finally offered a sneak peek at the upcoming live-action remake of Aladdin.
The first poster for the film comes from Will Smith, who plays the iconic ‘Genie’ in the reboot.
“Lemme out!” he exclaims in his social media caption. “Can’t wait for y’all to see me [in] BLUE!”
It looks like ‘Genie’ will have to stay inside for a little bit longer though. The live-action Aladdin film is only slated for release on 24 May 2019.
Smith will star opposite Mena Massoud (‘Aladdin’), Naomi Scott (‘Jasmine’), Marwan Kenzari (‘Jafar’), as well as Nasim Pedrad and Billy Magnussen, who will play new characters to the story.
