On Wednesday (Oct. 10), Will Smith shared the first poster from Disney's live-action Aladdin, in which he'll play Genie.

"LEMME OUT!! -- Can’t wait for y’all to see Me BLUE!" the 50-year-old actor captioned his Instagram post, along with the movie art.

Smith will portray Genie -- the comedic blue character voiced by the late Robin Williams in the 1992 animated version -- alongside Mena Massoud as Aladdin and Naomi Scott as Jasmine.
