Will Smith is painted blue for his highly-anticipated role as the Genie in Disney’s 2019 adaptation of Aladdin, replacing Robin Williams’ hilarious animated performance, for Guy Ritchie’s live action film. The film is lead by Mena Massoud in the title role, Billy Magnussen as Prince Anders, Naomi Scott as Jasmine, and Marwan Kenzari as Jafar. Alan Tudyk, Nasim Pedrad, Navid Negahban and Numan Acar also star. Ritchie and John August wrote the screenplay.
