Smith turns blue as Aladdin’s ge­nie

The Citizen (KZN) - - NEWS -

Dis­ney has an­nounced the re­lease of a live ac­tion adap­ta­tion next May of its an­i­mated clas­sic Aladdin, the an­cient tale of the pen­ni­less mar­ket boy who, with help from a cer­tain ge­nie, mar­ries head­strong Princess Jas­mine.

The re­make, shot in Lon­don and on lo­ca­tion in Jor­dan, is di­rected by Guy Ritchie and stars Will Smith as the ge­nie, Mena Mas­soud as Aladdin and Naomi Scott as Princess Jas­mine.

One early fan is Smith, who shared his en­thu­si­asm on In­sta­gram: “LEMME OUT!! Can’t wait for y’all to see Me BLUE! :-)”.

The score in­cludes new songs, as well as rere­cord­ings of the orig­i­nals by Alan Menken, Howard Ash­man and Tim Rice.
