The Genius of Will Smith had previously talked to producer Dan Lin, emphasizing the differences from the animated version. “And’ a great genius blue, with a tail and an unwelcome presence, and spirit” the words of Dan Lin “Will be a figure from the flavor of hip-hop”. Given the choice of Will Smith to play him, we are confident that this feature will be made better by the actor. Lin then goes on to talk about the emancipation of Jasmine: “It really speaks to his strength, his desire to be independent and how she wants to govern well the country. We have heard how in the animated version, had not enough goals, if not to find love.

Previously, always with EW have had the opportunity to talk to the director Guy Ritchie (Sherkock Holmes, King Arthur – the power of The sword), and a member of the tip of the cast as Will Smith, who will interpret the Genie of the lamp: “my skills and experience could add enough to make it fresh and worthy, but not so much to sweep away the nostalgia. Make a children's film was very attractive to me,” the words of the director.
“Whenever you work with something so iconic, is always scary,” said Will Smith about the Genius, “The question is always this: there is yet something more to give? Robin Williams, editor's note) seems to have sold out of everything that we could give to the character, he linked to a version without the time if it is the same. Anyway, I have started to feel safe to be able to offer something that was also a tribute to Robin Williams, and at the same time different, even with the aid of the music. I think that the final product will be unique in the entire world of Disney by adding a taste of hip-hop almost absent”.
The film, produced by Lin Pictures, will be directed by Guy Ritchie with John August who wrote the script: what's new about the plot, there are also present a series of new songs that should be the product of a collaboration between the composers of The The Land of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul and Alan Meken, who worked on the film, and the original animation in Aladdin.
