LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Will Smith and Disney gave the world a first look at the remake of “Aladdin” on Wednesday.

The Grammy-Award winning rapper and Academy-Award nominated actor shared the film’s first poster on social media with the caption, “LEMME OUT!! Can’t wait for y’all to see Me BLUE!”

Smith will voice Genie, which Robin Williams won a Golden Globe Special Achievement Award in 1993 for his work as the larger-than-life sidekick to Aladdin.

The new “Aladdin” film also stars Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine and Marwan Kenzari as Jafar, according to IMDb.

Some fans were ecstatic to hear the news.
