It really is a whole new world… we just hope Disney doesn’t ruin it for us. Hype around the new Aladdin movie is building as we get a first look at the live-action film releasing in 2019. While it seems they’ve poured a lot of effort into recreating the magic of this timeless classic, all anyone seems to be talking about is Will Smith’s Genie look… which honestly looks a bit cringe. Check out the photos below…
First photos of the new Aladdin movie revealed
The live-action Aladdin movie will be releasing on May 24, 2019, and while the set photos look stunning, there’s something about Will Smith as Genie that’s rubbing fans the wrong way (we couldn’t resist.) Here’s a glimpse of what’s coming…
The live-action remake brings Agrabah to life
Aladdin is played by 27-year-old Canadian actor Mena Massoud
A set was built to create the fictional city of Agrabah… in England
Marwan Kenzari, who plays Jafar, has got a lot of people rooting for the villain
Princess Jasmine is played by British-Indian actress Naomi Scott
And then there’s Will Smith as Genie… seriously?
After these photos dropped there was a massive backlash from fans fuming over a non-blue Genie. Luckily, Will confirmed that Genie in the film will indeed be blue. Can we do something about that hair now?
… and then there’s Abu (look at his little vest!)
Ready to travel back to Agrabah?
