Smith joked in the caption, “LEMME OUT!! Can’t wait for y’all to see me BLUE!”

Guy Ritchie is directing the film (really, we swear). Original composer Alan Menken is teaming up with  Oscar-winning “La La Land” songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul to add two new songs to the movie. Of course, “A Whole New World” will be included. The 1992 version won the Oscar for Best Song as well as the Grammy Award for Song of the Year (the only Disney tune that has accomplished that feat).
“Aladdin” opens May 24, 2019.
