Will Smith Debuts New Tease for Disney's Aladdin

Director Guy Ritchie's live-action remake of the 1992 animated film stars Will Smith as the Genie, Mena Massoud as the title hero, "Power Rangers" star Naomi Scott as the princess and Marwan Kenzari as the evil sorcerer on their tails.

"Aladdin" is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future.

We just started shooting Aladdin and I wanted to intro you guys to our new family...

The film is just one of Disney's many live-action remakes of their animated classics and like Beauty and the Beast, this remake will feature a bulk of the original music.

The Grammy-Award winning rapper and Academy-Award nominated actor shared the poster on social media with the caption, "LEMME OUT!" Can't wait for y'all to see Me BLUE! The late Robin Williams voiced the legendary Genie character in one of his most memorable roles.

Opening May 24th 2019, Aladdin will be followed by another live-action Disney remake in July the same year as Jon Favreau is set to unleash Lion King.

John August, whose credits include "Big Fish", wrote the new "Aladdin" script. Dan Lin, who produced Ritchie's two "Sherlock Holmes" movies for Warner Bros., is also producing "Aladdin" through his Lin Pictures company.
