Will Smith Teases New 'Aladdin' Movie With First Look At Poster

Will Smith Shares Aladdin Poster with Genie's Lamp

First teaser poster for Disney's live-action Aladdin

The teaser, which you can check out above, features a fair amount of wide establishing shots, which take audiences into the world of Agrabah.

Disney's "Aladdin" live-action remake arrives on the big screen next year, and today Will Smith revealed the first poster for the upcoming movie. From the looks of the first trailer, released Thursday evening, the film doesn't seem shy about borrowing familiar elements from its predecessor.

As nearly everyone knows, Genie has been trapped inside the lamp for thousands of years, but once the street-rat-turned-phony-prince Aladdin rubs its side, Genie is finally free.

Smith, of course, has been tasked with bringing Al's iconic pal Genie to life - a role originated in the 1992 animated classic by the late Robin Williams. As we all know, Aladdin is that diamond in the rough.

Fans drove the actress off Twitter after news of her casting broke, saying that she wasn't well-suited for the part. There is a new caped crusader on the scene, and that would be The CW's Batwoman .

Smith also shared the official poster on Instagram this week with the caption, "LEMME OUT!"

According to The Hollywood Report, the "Aladdin" cast list also includes Mena Massoud (Aladdin), Naomi Scott (Jasmine), Marwan Kenzari (Jafar) and Billy Magnussen and Nasim Pedrad as Jasmine's friends.

The Disney movie is expected to fly into theaters in May 2019.

Aladdin joins an ever-growing list of live-action Disney remakes. Guy Ritchie is directing from a script by John August.
