Entertainment Weekly Disney’s live-action adaptation of Aladdin won’t hit theaters until May, but we got a look at a handful pictures from the movie, Wednesday. Entertainment Weekly magazine has new photos of Aladdin, Jasmine, Jafar and Genie (played by Will Smith), who you might remember from the 1992 animated film. Mena Massoud, who plays Aladdin, also tweeted the photos joking, “This is what is looks like when Genie tells Aladdin what he wants for Christmas,” referencing a photo with Massoud and Smith. Just saw Will Smith as the genie in the live action Aladdin remake.
