The magic kingdom of the director "Aladdin" by Guy Ritchie is being revealed.
The live action movie released its first teaser trailer on Thursday. It came a day after Will Smith, who plays Genie, displayed the film's poster with the magic golden lamp.
The teaser sets the threat that Aladdin (Mena Masud) faces to find the lamp, which grants wishes courtesy of Genie.
A threatening voice refers to the character in the street as "a rough diamond" before showing him that he is about to take the lamp.
Smith has not yet been revealed as Genie. The star scoffed that his magical character was trapped inside the gold lamp when he showed the poster on his Facebook page Wednesday.
"LEMME OUT !! :-)," Smith wrote. "I can not wait for everyone to see me BLUE!

Smith has great shoes to fill playing the role that Robin Williams famously made in the 1992 animated classic "Aladdin".
Last September, Smith posted a photo of himself with his cast members on set. He promised that he was "putting on my genius."
The live action version hits theaters on May 24, 2019.
