Will Smith, who will play Genie, shared the poster on his Instagram on October 10. "Can't wait for y'all to see Me BLUE!" .

Smith will voice Genie, which Robin Williams won a Golden Globe Special Achievement Award in 1993 for his work as the larger-than-life sidekick to Aladdin. Naomi and Mena looked flawless as Princess Jasmine and Aladdin. Aladdin is hitting theaters some time in May. The filmmaker later hired Numan Acar as Hakim, Navid Negahban as The Sultan, Marwan Kenzari as Jafar and Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine.

Clearly thrilled about being part of the new take on the classic Disney tale, Smith captioned the poster, "LEMME OUT!" The live-action versions of The Lion King and Dumbo will also debut in 2019.
