A trailer for Disney’s upcoming live-action adaptation of Aladdin aired during the 2019 Grammys finally gave everyone what they wanted — Will Smith’s Genie!
The live-action remake of Disney’s popular 1992 animated feature stars Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Jasmine and Will Smith as the one and only Genie. Opposite the three leads is Marwan Kenzari as scheming vizier Jafar. New characters include Nasim Perdad as Dalia, Jasmine’s loyal handmaiden, and Billy Magnussen as Prince Anders, one of Jasmine’s suitors.
Helmed by “Sherlock Holmes” director Guy Ritchie, Smith takes on Robin Williams’ former role as the Genie and spoke about the differences between his version of the character and Williams’ in an interview.
“There’s a little bit less mimicking — there’s a James Brown piece that we do but a little bit less mimicking. The thing that will be the major addition from me playing the Genie is the hip-hop base. I think that’ll be fun for people. I think it’ll stand out as unique even in the Disney world. There hasn’t been a lot of that hip-hop flavor in Disney history!”
Will Smith really has stole the spotlight by showing up at the very end and making quite the impression. You wanted blue? Oh, you got blue!
Aladdin will be released on May 24th, 2019.
