Will Smith teases Disney's 'Aladdin' remake
Hollywood star Will Smith can’t wait for Disney’s remake of “Aladdin.”
The star on Wednesday revealed the live-action musical’s first poster. Looking similar to the 1992 Robin Williams film, the poster features an ornate lamp and blue smoke along with the words: “Choose wisely.”
Smith, who plays the Genie, wrote on Facebook: “LEMME OUT! Can’t wait for y’all to see Me BLUE.”
Smith also shared a selfie with the cast in September, revealing that filming had officially begun.
Smith captioned the shot: "We just started shooting 'Aladdin' and I wanted to intro you guys to our new family... Mena Massoud/Aladdin, Naomi Scott/Princess Jasmine, Marwan Kanzari/Jafar, and I'm over here gettin my Genie on. Here we go! (sic)"
Naomi Scott, who played the Pink Ranger in the 2017 “Power Rangers” movie, is Princess Jasmine in the film, directed by Guy Ritchie.
According to the poster, the film’s release date is set for May 2019.
