Aladdin Live-Action Remake Has A First Poster

Aladdin Live-Action Remake Has A First Poster

Disney knows a good thing when they see it, so they're all-in on live-action remakes of their animated hits. Aladdin, played by Mena Massoud, goes into the Cave of Wonders and discovers the Genie's lamp.

Ever since Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland cracked the $1 billion dollar mark at the worldwide box office in 2010, Disney has gone on a frenzy of remaking live-action films to quite a bit of success.

We just started shooting Aladdin and I wanted to intro you guys to our new family...

Will Smith, who will play Genie, shared the poster on his Instagram on October 10.

In a almost 10-minute long speech in the Oval Office, West says he was pressured not to wear his red "Make America Great Again". Trump also defended West as a "nice guy" and "actually a different kind of person than people think".

"Choose wisely", the poster also teases. HollywoodLife actually saw the first footage of the film back at CinemaCon in April 2018.

Plus, the poster gives us a hint about the movie's release date. The late Robin Williams voiced the legendary Genie character in one of his most memorable roles. Aladdin plans to uses these wishes to win over the attractive Princess Jasmine, but the evil Jafar has other plans. Original composer Alan Menken is teaming up with Oscar-winning "La La Land" songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul to add two new songs to the movie.

Aladdin is scheduled to release on May 24, 2019. Disney is also developing live-action remakes for their streaming service - titles like The Sword in the Stone and Lady and the Tramp.
