“LEMME OUT!! 🧞 Can’t wait for y’all to see Me BLUE! :-)”. That was the caption Will Smith wrote for the live-action Aladdin‘s first teaser poster on Instagram.
Smith plays Genie with “phenomenal cosmic powers”, the iconic role the late Robin Williams had played in the 1992 animated film.
Screenplay for Aladdin is written by John August, Guy Ritchie, and Vanessa Taylor, and will be directed by Guy Ritchie. Mena Massoud will be playing the titular role and Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine.
Aladdin is scheduled to be in theaters in May 24, 2019.
