The upcoming live-action remake of ‘Aladdin‘ will hit theaters May 24, 2019, and a full trailer for the movie should drop soon, but before then, we’re being treated to a few official photos from set.
In the photos below, you can see Will Smith as Genie, Mena Massoud as Aladdin and Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine.
Several fans have pointed out that Smith’s Genie is not blue in these photos, and they’re not happy about it.

Not sure why Genie’s color would matter that much, but you folks should know that Genie will in fact be blue in the movie. This coming straight from Will Smith’s Instagram account.
As mentioned above, this Aladdin remake will hit theaters in May. These photos look super corny, but obviously you can’t judge a movie by a few staged photos from set. We’ll wait until we see the trailer to make a real judgement.
