Will Smith Reveals First Poster for Alaadin Movie

Will Smith just made some faithful Disney fans’ dream come true!

On Wednesday, the “Suicide Squad” star posted the first poster for the remake of the musical “Aladdin,” in which he’ll be playing the wise-cracking genie! The post features smoke trailing out of a thin, ornately decorated lamp set upon a rock from behind which light exudes.

 

“Choose wisely,” the tagline reads, along with the month of the film’s 2019 release — May.

Smith also hinted that his character is going to share some physical similarities with Robin Williams’ take on the wish-granting character in the 1992 film.

“LEMME OUT!! Can’t wait for y’all to see Me BLUE!” he captioned the fun image.

This teasing post from the 50-year-old actor isn’t the first regarding the forthcoming Disney project. Back in Sept. of 2017, he shared a photo on Facebook featuring some of his castmates on the production including Mena Massoud (playing Aladdin), Naomi Scott (playing Jasmine) and Marwan Kenzari (playing Jafar).

Aladdin is just one of several live-action adaptations in the works from the House of Mouse, they are also hard at work on “Mulan” and “The Lion King.”
