Aladdin's Will Smith as the blue Genie

This year, Disney will be taking us to a whole new world of their live-action adaptations of their animated classics. Following up the success of such films like The Jungle Book and Beauty and The Beast, the studio will be releasing Aladdin. Expectations are riding high for this one as it is a widely beloved title and all eyes will be on Will Smith, who plays the role of Genie, who was voiced by the late Robin Williams in the original.

During the Grammy Awards broadcast on Sunday night, Disney unveiled another look at the live-action Aladdin, which reveals our first look at Smith’s genie. Watch it here below.

It’s been weeks since we saw the teaser trailer for Disney’s live-action adaptation of their animated classic, Aladdin. Based on the Middle Eastern folktale collection “One Thousand and One Nights,” the film will see a street rat named Aladdin (Mena Massoud) finding an all-powerful magical lamp that holds a wish-granting Genie (Will Smith). Using its power, he’ll disguise himself as a prince in order to impress Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott).

The film isn’t due out in theaters until next year, but a handful of new images have been released that give us our first looks at Princess Jasmine, Jafar (Marwan Kenzari), and, of course, Genie. Check these images out, plus a few tidbits on the film from the cast and director Guy Ritchie, below.

However, now it looks like he is no longer involved as The LEGO Batman Movie director Chris McKay has been named the new director. More on the report, below.

Lilo and Stitch

It’s no secret that Disney is mining their old animated classics and turning them into live-action retellings. Most, if not all, have become box office hits for the studio. This only furthers their efforts to keep making these films. And now, it comes as no surprise, they will be continuing to do this. This time with Lilo and Stitch.

New reports say that the studio will be working with their live-action Aladdin producers Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich to develop a live-action animation hybrid of the Hawaii-set animated film. More on the story below.
