It looks like actor Will Smith is feeling blue about his role in Aladdin... genie blue.

The actor posted about it on his instagram page saying, "LEMME OUT!! 🧞 Can’t wait for y’all to see Me BLUE! :-) #aladdin"

Smith is taking on the role that was made iconic by the late Robert Williams in the original 1992 version of Aladdin.

Canadian actor Mena Massoud will play Aladdin.

"Power Rangers" star Naomi Scott will play Princess Jasmine.

The movie poster released today is the first for the new film and shows a release date of May.
