Disney dropped a massive surprise on all of its fans early Thursday afternoon in the form of the first poster for the upcoming live-action adaptation of Aladdin. Naturally, every grown-up '90s kid has been freaking out ever since.
The original Aladdin was released in 1992, and quickly became a staple to kids everywhere throughout the rest of the decade. Now that all of those kids are older, some with families of their own, Disney is preparing to unleash a new version of the movie into theaters.
Directed by Guy Ritchie, the new Aladdin stars Will Smith as the Genie, taking over the iconic role for the late Robin Williams. It was Smith who debuted the poster online Wednesday, and the image, combined with his involvement, is enough to get everyone online talking.

This poster for the live-action Aladdin movie is quite nice. It reminds me of one they did for Cinderella a few years ago with the glass slipper. pic.twitter.com/26FrC4e63E— Jordan M. (@MovieMan995) October 10, 2018
