Thanks to the wonders of Disney overseas marketing, we have a fresh look at Will Smith as Genie and Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine from the upcoming live-action remake of Aladdin.
The new takes on Will Smith and Naomi Scott come to us from a beautiful new international poster for Aladdin, which features a colorfully rendered portrait from one of the most iconic scenes in the original animated film. We are talking about when Jasmine (Naomi Scott) and Aladdin (Mena Massoud) are flying around on the magic carpet singing A Whole New World with the backdrop of a dually lit moon.
Check out the poster for yourself below:
The poster allows us a better look at Naomi Scott as she sports the iconic blue dress that Naomi Scott’s princess wears in the original.
Flying along just below the two lovebirds is Will Smith as Genie, in all his blue majesty. Of course, he is never far from his lamp, which can be seen in the bottom right-hand corner. In addition to his golden wrist bonds, Will Smith is draped in what appears to be some royal blue fabric, fitting for the theatrical and mighty nature of the character.
What do you make of the international Aladdin poster? Does it capture the essence of the film? Are you a fan of blue Will Smith as Genie? Sound off in the comments below and let us know your thoughts!
The cast features Mena Massoud who stars in the titular role of Aladdin, as well as Will Smith as the Genie, Power Rangers star Naomi Scott as Jasmine, Numan Acar (Homeland) as Hakim, the head of the guards and Jafar’s right-hand man, and Marwan Kenzari as Jafar. In addition, the live-action remake features new characters made just for the film played by Billy Magnussen (Game Night) and former Saturday Night Live comedienne Nasim Pedrad.
“Aladdin” is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future.
The film is currently slated to hit theaters May 24, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on Disney’s upcoming live-action adaptation of the animated classic Aladdin as we learn it.
New Avengers: Endgame Figure Gives Us The Best Look At Jeremy Renner’s Ronin Costume Yet
New Avengers: Endgame merchandise from Hasbro's Legends toy line gives us the best look at Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye alter-ego in the film, Ronin.
Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye was absent from all of the events in Avengers: Infinity War. Black Widow revealed that Jeremy Renner's Clive Barton took a deal after Captain America: Civil War and went away to live with his family on house arrest. No one really knows what's going on with Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye after Avengers: Infinity War but the introduction of his famous alter-ego from the comic books, Ronin, may give us clues about the direction he's headed.
Ronin was first introduced during the events of the famous Marvel storyline Secret Invasion. Although Clive Barton wasn't Ronin at first, which was actually an assassin named Maya López. But fter the death of López, Hawkeye took on the mantle of Ronin later on in the story.
Jeremy Renner's new identity, Ronin, has been teased ever since BTS photos of Avengers: Endgame leaked some months ago and later confirmed by the first trailer for the film. Now, the Legends toy line gives us the best look at the character yet, showing us a very comic accurate version for the movie. Check him out in the gallery below.
Several theories point out that Jeremy Renner's Ronin lost his family, or some part of it, during the Decimation event so now he's rejoining the Avengers in order to avenge them. Although other theories point out that Katherine Langford's character will be none other than Jeremy Renner's Clive Barton daughter Kate Bishop, and that he's been training her to eventually pick up the mantle of Hawkeye. Whether she was a victim of the Decimation event or if she's working with her to avenge his family, is anyone's guess at the moment.
