The movie, directed by Guy Ritchie, stars Will Smith as the Genie, Mena Massoud in the title role, and Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine.

This movie comes ahead of Guy Favreau’s retelling of The Lion King later this summer and follows a live-action retelling of DumboDumbo wasn’t a super strong performer in the box office but The Lion King is expected to be quite popular.
