Photos Will Smiths Genie In Aladdin Revealed 2

The first official publicity stills from Disney’s live-action adaptation of “Aladdin” have arrived and finally reveal a first look at Will Smith as the Genie – and he ain’t blue aside from his tunic.

The revealing photos come as part of an Entertainment Weekly cover story on the Guy Ritchie-directed film which also stars Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmin, Marwan Kenzari as Jafar, Navid Negahban as the Sultan, Nasim Pedrad as handmaiden Dalia, Billy Magnussen as Prince Anders, and Numan Acar as palace guards head Hakim.

John August adapted the screenplay for the project which will be a part musical with Alan Menken providing the score that boasts recordings of the original songs, along with two new ones he recorded with “La La Land” songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
