Speaking to MailOnline before entering the London screening, Will said of playing the role of Genie – made famous in the animated 1992 version by the late Robin Williams: ‘You know that’s what Robin Williams gave to the genie that was spectacular, and that was the thing that I was working really hard to capture but give it my flavour.

‘The genie will say anything or do anything, there’s a certain madness to the genie – that was the fun that Robin Williams created so I was trying to find what that meant, with a little more of a Fresh Prince flavour to it.

‘I wanted to create something that was both nostalgic but also had a little bit new school sometimes.

‘It was quite stressful and daunting, Robin Williams didn’t leave much room to improve on the genie!’

He went on: ‘Guy Ritchie had a very specific tie on what he wanted the genie to look like, he kept saying 1970s body builder!

‘He said he wanted him to look like one of those body builders whose upper body is really huge and the legs are really small because they missed leg day so that was the comedic take of how he wanted him to look.’
