Twitter decided to have fun with the new “Aladdin” poster and created something you can’t unsee.
Disney dropped the first full-length “Aladdin” trailer on Tuesday. The trailer offers a first glimpse at Will Smith as a blue Genie. The trailer also explains a lot about what plot we can expect from the upcoming film.
Disney also released a new poster for the film, which you can see below.

But Twitter decided to make a meme out of the movie’s poster. Specifically, Twitter users pointed out that the poster looks eerily similar to the poster for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
Case in point:

Aladdin: "Hey, can I copy your homework?"
Star Wars: "Yeah, just change it up so it isn't obvious." pic.twitter.com/0IadqhvtxL

Is it me or are the poster artists at @WaltDisneyCo getting a little lazy? They’ve literally swapped light sabres for a lamp. I’m half expecting the villain to be Kylo Ren #StarWars #Aladdin pic.twitter.com/237tA3Is3Q
