One of the biggest surprises at the Grammy’s last night came in the form of this movie trailer, revealing Will Smith as “Genie” in Disney’s live-action Aladdin.
Smith expressed his excitement for the role, saying:
“I got to do everything I know how to do in this movie. I got to act and it was comedy and beautiful dramatic scenes, I got to sing, I got to rap, I got to dance, I got to do action sequences — it was everything that I’ve trained and learned how to do over the last 30 years of entertainment and I got to it use all in playing the Genie.”
Aladdin is set to premiere in theatres May 24th, 2019.
