Aladdin: Will Smith Shares First Cast Photo

The Fresh Genie of Agrabah himself, Will Smith, has shared a photo of the Aladdin cast together for the first time.

The photo shows Smith (Genie), Mena Massoud (Aladdin), Naomi Scott (Princess Jasmine), and Marwan Kazari (Jafar) together on set, though unfortunately none of them are in costume.

The live-action remake of 1992’s Disney animated classic will be directed by Guy Ritchie and is set to hit theaters at some point in 2018.

In other Aladdin news, Deadline reports that Homeland’s Navid Negahban has been cast in the role of the Sultan, while Billy Magnussen was recently cast as an unnamed prince and potential husband for Jasmine.
