ALADDIN Stills Feature First Look At Abu, Jafar, And More; Will Smith Confirms That Genie WILL Be CGI/Blue

ALADDIN Stills Feature First Look At Abu, Jafar, And More; Will Smith Confirms That Genie WILL Be CGI/Blue

An entire gallery of Aladdin images have been released following that EW cover reveal, and these not only offer first looks at Abu and Jafar, but also a number of key moments in the live-action remake...

The first teaser poster and trailer for Aladdin didn't reveal much when they were released recently, but the curtain has finally been pulled back on Guy Ritchie's live-action remake of the classic animated movie. 

That came courtesy of an Entertainment Weekly cover reveal earlier today and, well, pretty much everyone is talking about Will Smith's Genie! You'd think studios would learn not to show unfinished characters off this soon as there's always a backlash, but the actor has since cleared things up and you'll find details on that below (spoiler alert: he will be blue and a CGI creation). 

For now, though, we have a brand new gallery of official images and you need to check these out! As well as first looks at characters like Abu and Jafar, we see more of Aladdin and Jasmine. 

Say what you will about Ritchie, but things are looking good for this one so far and Disney has a pretty solid track record with these remakes, so here's hoping it's up there with The Jungle Book.

To take a look at these images, all you need to do is click on the "View List" button down below.




Abu looks incredible in live-action and that's going to make a lot of fans happy. In this shot, Aladdin's monkey companion appears to be in awe of something in the Cave of Wonders (Genie?).
 


The Sultan's advisor Jafar (Marwen Kenzari) is the lead villain here and he obviously has his own nefarious reasons for wanting to get his hands on the magic lamp which the Genie calls home. 
 


Naomi Scott is clearly going to rock some impressive looking costumes throughout the course of this movie and it's said that Jasmine's arc will see her seeking power to protect her people.
 


Aladdin and Jasmine go on the run from palace guards through a tannery and, believe it or not, this realistic looking set was actually created in London (where Guy Ritchie shoots most of his films).
 


Back in 1992, Jasmine only had her pet tiger Rajah to talk to. Here, she'll be joined by new creation Dalia (Nasim Pedrad), her handmaiden and best friend. Expect her to deliver plenty of laughs.
 


A hero in the making, Aladdin shields two children from impending danger in Agrabah but what they're facing off with is hard to say. That little boy doesn't look particularly bothered by it, though!
 


Just like in the animated movie, an undercover Jasmine bumps into Aladdin as she wanders around the streets of Agrabah. Disney avoided doing a Prince of Persia when it cast these leads!
 


Will Smith has taken to Instagram to confirm that this is just Genie's human disguise and he actually spends the majority of the movie as a CGI character who, yes, is indeed going to be blue.
