Will Smith reveals first post for Disney's 'Aladdin'

Will Smith shared the first poster for Disney's live-action remake of its 1992 animated classic "Aladdin".

Will Smith, who plays Genie in the upcoming film, debuted the one-sheet on his Instagram page on Wednesday. "Can't wait for y'all to see Me BLUE!" . As fans of the 1992 animated movie know, Aladdin frees Genie from the lamp and uses his first wish to become Prince Ali Ababwa, a worthy suitor for Princess Jasmine. It's fitting that Smith was the one to tease the trailer, as he also shared the first photo of the cast on set in September 2017. Naomi and Mena looked ideal as Princess Jasmine and Aladdin.

The new film is directed by Guy Ritchie with a screenplay by Ritchie, John August, and Vanessa Taylor.

The teaser provides a first look at the film's spectacular visuals and iconic music, while we also get look at Mena Massoud as Aladdin himself. Original composer Alan Menken is teaming up with Oscar-winning "La La Land" songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul to add two new songs to the movie. The filmmaker later hired Numan Acar as Hakim, Navid Negahban as The Sultan, Marwan Kenzari as Jafar and Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine.

Will Aladdin work as a live-action movie? Tim Burton's Dumbo and Jon Favreau's The Lion Kingset to hit theaters in 2019, and Maleficent 2 will arrive in 2020.
