Disney, Will Smith, and Make-A-Wish® launched the #FriendLikeMe Challenge today in celebration of the upcoming live action “Aladdin.” Will Smith, who plays the all-powerful Genie, encourages fans and celebrities to participate in the challenge to show the world: Where there’s a wish, there’s a way.
The #FriendLikeMe Challenge poses the question: If you were the Genie in Disney’s ‘Aladdin’ and had the chance to grant three heartfelt wishes for someone, who would you share them with? Tag a friend on Twitter and/or Instagram. For every public post with #FriendLikeMe from April 29 through May 24, 2019, Disney will donate $5 up to $1 million to Make-A-Wish to help grant life-changing wishes to children battling critical illnesses all over the world. For more information, visit FriendLikeMe.org.
Disney also released a new TV spot for the film today. Check in out in the video below. “Aladdin” comes to theaters nationwide on May 24, 2019. Tickets are now on sale!
