Is Will Smith playing the Genie in the Aladdin remake? See the hilarious Twitter reaction

Will is reportedly in talks for the role of the Genie

Another fan suggested that the film could be based on Will's rom-com film Hitch, writing: "I predict the Genie will try to set Aladdin up with Jasmine and this really a secret sequel to Hitch." It appeared that many fans were excited about the star taking on the role, with another adding: "A Will Smith rap version of You Ain't Never Had a Friend Like Me has some serious potential." Some fans spoke about Will replacing Robin, who tragically passed away back in 2014, suggesting that he is the only actor who could take on the iconic role. "No one will ever beat Robin Williams' portrayal of Genie, but I think that Will Smith would do the character justice," one wrote. Another added: "Robin will always be the Genie in my eyes; but, Will Smith is the only actor that can make this role his own."

The upcoming live-action film of the 1992 animation will be directed by Guy Richie, with production beginning in the UK this year. This isn't Will's only reported Disney role in the works, as the Suicide Squad actor is also reportedly being considered as the title lead in an upcoming live-action remake of Dumbo.
