Will Smith Just Shared The First Cast Photo Of "Aladdin" And I'm Not Crying, You're Crying
Shining, shimmering, splendid.
So unless you've been trapped in a lamp for 10,000 years, you know Disney's currently rebooting the 1992 classic Aladdin in live-action form.
You know, Aladdin? The tale of a street rat with a heart of gold whose wit, charm, and three wishes win over the princess every '90s girl modeled herself after?
Naomi Scott is Princess Jasmine, and she is NOT a prize to be won.
Will Smith is the Genie, and we've most certainly never had a friend like him.
And Marwan Kenzari is Jafar, the conniving Royal Vizier hell-bent on de-throning the somewhat oblivious Sultan.
And today we finally got to see the four of them together when Will Smith shared the first on-set photo of the group and OMG precious baby angels.
"I wanted to intro you guys to our new family..."
Walt Disney Studios also released a statement noting:
Casting for “Aladdin,” the live-action adaptation of the studio’s animated classic, is complete and production is currently underway at Longcross Studios outside London.
