Walt Disney Pictures just released the first trailer for Guy Ritchie's live-action adaptation of Aladdin, based on the Arab-style folktale-and, of course, the animated film of the same name. Will also shared the poster on his Facebook page and wrote, "LEMME OUT!" Smith followed it up by saying, "Can't wait for y'all to see me BLUE!", alluding to his role as Genie. Will Smith was the first actor to join the cast, signing on to voice Genie in July 2017. But, as the poster warns, Aladdin can't get carried away in attempting to win over Jasmine; he must "choose wisely" when making his three wishes with Genie. Naomi and Mena looked flawless as Princess Jasmine and Aladdin. Remaking a Disney film is certainly a big shift in tone and story content than even his most accessible films like Sherlock Holmes but Disney seems to have enough trust in the director to hand him one of the studio's most beloved '90s animated films.

The new film is directed by Guy Ritchie with a screenplay by Ritchie, John August, and Vanessa Taylor. Aladdin is hitting theaters some time in May.
