First ‘Aladdin’ Images Introduce the Live-Action Remake’s Colorful World

The publication dropped three images from the live-action reboot. Now, thanks to Entertainment Tonight, their wish has been granted...kind of. And his first look has been revealed in this week's Entertainment Weekly, which is released on Friday. In one of them, Genie can be seen having a discussion with Aladdin in the desert, and in another, Aladdin and Jasmine appear to be under some sort of disguise.

Thankfully, Disney has now released some images from their upcoming movie, directed by Guy Ritchie, which does more to introduce us to the characters that populate this magical world.

Just like the original, Smith's genie will have a floating, blue counterpart, which Ritchie somewhat confusingly likens to "a muscular 1970s dad". Mesa Massour plays the titular character and British actress Naomi Scott stars as Princess Jasmine. While Will Smith has since confirmed that his character will be blue for most of the film, fans will have to wait a while longer before getting a glimpse at the character with his more iconic look.

He continues, "I think it'll stand out as unique even in the Disney world".

The character of Jasmine has been retooled with a heaver feminist bent to maker her "a more rounded character and maybe not being such a stereotype of the time".

"There hasn't been a lot of that hip-hop flavour in Disney history".

"He was big enough to feel like a force - not so muscular that he looked like he was counting his calories, but formidable enough to look like you knew when he was in the room", Ritchie said.

EW says the final version of Smith's Genie in the film, which is expected to hit theatres May 24, 2019, isn't quite finished.

Talking about the character previously played by Robin Williams in 1992, Smith said: "I started to feel confident that I could deliver something that was an homage to Robin Williams but was musically different".
