The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star shared a snap of him and his two co-stars on the front of Entertainment Weekly, along with the caption: “BAM!! First look at the Genie 🧞‍♂️, Princess Jasmine, and #Aladdin! Check Me Rockin’ the Top Knot Ponytail Vibes”.

“(and yes, I’m gonna be BLUE! 🙂 ),” he added.

The picture showed the father-of-three in a purple and blue costume, with a beard and his head shaved, apart from a ponytail on the top.

Naomi donned a gorgeous blue and gold outfit, with gold embellishments and red lipstick, while Mena took a different twist on Aladdin’s original outfit, as his staple purple vest was changed to a red vest with a striped shirt underneath.
