The Suicide Squad actor, who will be playing the magical Genie in the much-awaited film, took to his Instagram account to share the first poster. The very first look at the live-action "Aladdin" debuted on October 11, and it looks incredible.

The first teaser for Disney's live-action Aladdin has arrived, and while it might not give away a whole lot, it does put a major set piece on display.

The first look gives us a glimpse at the wonderful live-action set.

The tagline, "Choose wisely", doesn't feature in the original film (though it might be a misguided Indiana Jones reference just because it involves a fancy gold artifact). As fans of the 1992 animated movie know, Aladdin frees Genie from the lamp and uses his first wish to become Prince Ali Ababwa, a worthy suitor for Princess Jasmine. Naomi and Mena looked flawless as Princess Jasmine and Aladdin.

The group says Eugenie does not carry out royal duties and that weddings are personal, private occasions, not affairs of state. Afterward, the newlyweds plan a carriage ride through the streets of Windsor to give the public a chance to see them up close.

The live-action Aladdin, directed by Guy Ritchie, also stars Marwan Kenzari, Navid Negahban, Nasim Pedrad, Billy Magnussen, and Numan Acar.

For the animated version, the voice cast included Robin Williams, Scott Weinger, Linda Larkin, Jonathan Freeman, Gilbert Gottfried, Jim Cummings, and more.

A remake of the 1992 animated hit, which is itself based on the folktale from One Thousand and One Nights, the musical romantic fantasy-adventures is in the mold of live-action adaptations, like The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast and Cinderella, which plumbs the studio's decades-old back catalog for new blockbusters.
