Live-Action Aladdin Film Reveals First Look At Jasmine And Genie
With live-action versions of our favorite animated features on the rise, fans are becoming more and more skeptical. After all, recreating the magic is seemingly difficult when it comes to bringing beloved characters to life. Speaking of magic, the live-action Aladdin film has revealed the official first look at Jasmine and Genie.
Taking things straight to the cover of Entertainment Weekly, we see Aladdin (Mena Massoud), Jasmine (Naomi Scott), and Will Smith as Genie in his human form. Many fans were quick to point out the lack of blue on Smith’s part, but more on that in a bit. First, let’s take a look at the trio.
As can be seen in the first look above, the three characters are looking rather true to form. However, Genie isn’t as blue as some would like. Taking to Twitter and Instagram, many fans let their feelings be known. However, Smith was quick to assure everyone that we won’t see this Genie very much in the film, and that the character will spend a lot of time on screen via CGI.
In an Instagram post, Smith said, “and yes, I’m gonna be BLUE.” Replying to a comment, he said, “This is how the Genie is in Human/Disguise form. My character will be CGI most of the movie.” This must be a little reassuring for fans, as portraying a larger-than-life character such as Genie with only practical effects might be a bit difficult. In the meantime, here’s another look at Jasmine and Aladdin:
The live-action Aladdin film is set to arrive in theaters on May 24, 2019. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other entertainment news going on right now, check out the following:
