First Look at Will Smith as Genie, Abu & Jafar for Live-Action “Aladdin”

We’ve got some wishes to grant.

Entertainment Weekly is giving us a first look at new images from the live-action Aladdin, including a first look at Will Smith as the Genie.

The three stars of the film graced the cover of the newest edition of the Entertainment Weekly magazine.

“The great thing about the role of the Genie is that it’s essentially a hyperbole for who that individual actor is, so it’s a wonderful platform and tapestry for an actor to fill his boots on.”

– Guy Ritchie, Director

In the 1992 animated classic, Princess Jasmine has her tiger Rajah to confide in… but in this new reimagining she has her friend Dalia to help wade through suitors who ask for her hand in marriage.
