Yup! You read that right! Philly’s very own Will Smith just announced that he will be playing the bubbly and witty ‘Genie‘ in the personified version of Aladdin. The Disney original is set to hit theaters next May 2019.
Smith is working alongside other talented actors and actresses like Naomi Scott playing Princess Jasmine, Mena Massoud playing Aladdin, and Marwan Kenzari playing the infamous Jafar.
We are totally ready to watch our childhood favorite come to life. #Aphillyates, are you ready to see uncle Will in all blue?
