Will Smith put his own spin in his choreography as the genie in Disney's 'Aladdin' live action remake says choreographer Jamal Sims. Sims showed us the dance steps to a 'Friend Like Me' dance number, and gave us insight into the production including teaching us some dance steps to the 'Friend Like Me' musical number.
ALADDIN is now available for home release via Digital 4K Ultra HD™ and Movies Anywhere Aug. 27 and on 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray™ Sept. 10.
Jamal Sims has served as a choreographer for the STEP UP movies and Disney's "Descendants 3." In ALADDIN, you can catch him quickly if you don't blink as a teeny, tiny genie in the movie, and he has a bit part in "Descendants 3" as Doctor Facilier.
Watch in the video below as Sims reveals some of the behind the scenes in the choreography of the dance numbers and how Will Smith's input shaped the musical numbers.
