The first look gives us a glimpse at the awesome live-action set.
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.
This new rendering of the magic lamp marks a pleasing call-back to the 1992 theatrical poster, which also featured the lamp front-and-centre - here's a reminder if your memory doesn't stretch back 26 years. 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.
Will Smith, who will play Genie, shared the poster on his Instagram on October 10. People love Aladdin, and while I'm sure there will be some additions and some alterations, overall the new movie will likely bear a strong resemblance to the animated original. Aladdin plans to uses these wishes to win over the attractive Princess Jasmine, but the evil Jafar has other plans. The late Robin Williams voiced the legendary Genie character in one of his most memorable roles.
The Disney movie is expected to fly into theaters in May 2019. Disney is also developing live-action remakes for their streaming service - titles like The Sword in the Stone and Lady and the Tramp.
