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.

Check out the poster below.

Aladdin is among a series of live-action remakes Disney has been working on. But, as the poster warns, Aladdin can't get carried away in attempting to win over Jasmine; he must "choose wisely" when making his three wishes with Genie. Among those in cast will be Will Smith, who plays the wisecracking, pop culture reference spouting Genie, voiced in the original by the late Robin Williams. Aladdin is hitting theaters some time in May.

"LEMME OUT!" Smith wrote on the post. "Can't wait for y'all to see me BLUE!" Mena Massoud/Aladdin, Naomi Scott/Princess Jasmine, Marwan Kenzari/Jafar, and I'm over here gettin my Genie on.

Aladdin is directed by Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes, The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) from a screenplay by John August (Dark Shadows, Big Fish) based on the 1992 animated film Aladdin and stories from "One Thousand and One Nights". Executive music producer Chris Montan (Pocahontas, Frozen) and producer Marc Platt (Mary Poppins Returns) are also consulting on the re-imagined project.
