Will Smith Posts First 'Aladdin' Cast Photo From Set
Fans who used one of their three wishes to see a glimpse of Disney's live-action Aladdin are in luck.
On Wednesday, Will Smith, who plays Genie, posted a picture of himself and castmates Mena Massoud (Aladdin), Naomi Scott (Princess Jasmine) and Marwan Kenzari (Jafar) on his Facebook page.
"We just started shooting Aladdin and I wanted to intro you guys to our new family," Smith wrote. "Here we go!"
Smith plays the iconic, magical character originally voiced by the late Robin Williams in the 1992 animated film.
It was announced Tuesday that Billy Magnussen had joined the Disney's live-action cast as Prince Anders.
John August (Big Fish, Corpse Bride) wrote the script and Dan Lin, who worked with director Guy Ritchie on Sherlock Holmes, is producing through his Lin Pictures banner.
