First teaser poster for Disney's live-action Aladdin

Will Smith has unveiled the first Aladdin poster and it looks as magical as the classic tale.

In the original film, "street rat" Aladdin frees the Genie from a magic lamp, earning three wishes in the process.

The live-action Aladdin started filming in September 2017, a few months delayed after a prolonged casting process.

Will Smith, who plays Genie in the upcoming film, debuted the one-sheet on his Instagram page on Wednesday. We'll have to wait and see. It features the film's iconic lamp and a secret about what awaits inside it, as well as the warning "Choose wisely". Aladdin plans to uses these wishes to win over the handsome Princess Jasmine, but the evil Jafar has other plans.

Guy Ritchie is helming the new Aladdin movie, from a script he co-wrote with Vanessa Taylor and John August. Remaking a Disney film is certainly a big shift in tone and story content than even his most accessible films like Sherlock Holmes but Disney seems to have enough trust in the director to hand him one of the studio's most beloved '90s animated films.

Directed by Guy Ritchie, Aladdin also stars Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Jasmine, Marwan Kenzari as Jafar, as well as Billy Magnussen and Nasim Pedrad as both a new character and a friend to Jasmine.

Disney's "Aladdin" live-action movie hits theaters on May 24, 2019.
