Will Smith as the Genie in 'Aladdin' - First Look Photo!

Here’s your first look at Will Smith as the Genie in Aladdin from Entertainment Weekly‘s latest cover!

The cover image features the three leads of the movie in character – Will as the Genie, Mena Massoud as Aladdin, and Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine.

About playing the Genie, Will said, “Whenever you’re doing things that are iconic, it’s always terrifying. The question is always: Where was there meat left on the bone? [Original Genie] Robin [Williams] didn’t leave a lot of meat on the bone with the character.”

Will continued, “I started to feel confident that I could deliver something that was an homage to Robin Williams but was musically different. Just the flavor of the character would be different enough and unique enough that it would be in a different lane, versus trying to compete.”

The movie will hit theaters on May 24, 2019.
