ALADDIN’s Will Smith reunited with his Fresh Prince of Bel Air co-star Alfonso Ribeiro last night as Zayn Malik returned to the spotlight after a TWO year hiatus.

A bevy of stars gathered for the premiere of his £125 million movie in Hollywood and there was no denying that the 50-year-old actor was the man of the moment.

Dressed in a dazzling grey suit and shiny black boots, Will and his former co-star Alfonso got together for snaps on the purple carpet as little Alfonso Jr grinned.

Later, the actor hopped into photos with director Guy Ritchie, Dame Helen Mirren and Naomi Scott and Mena Massoud, who play Aladdin and Princess Jasmine in the live action remake.

Will was full of beans and surrounded by his proud family, including wife Jada Pinkett Smith, daughter Willow Smith and sons Trey and Jaden.

At one point, Will playfully covered daughter Willow’s legs as the 18-year-old rocked a striking dress suit and cape.

Her mum Jada, 47, who recently admitted she was once addicted to porn, was a visual delight in a blue sequin top and flowing skirt, and cropped blonde hair.

Will couldn’t keep his hands off his wife and put on a loved up display, after they were dogged by rumours that their 21-year marriage is in trouble.

Elsewhere, pop star Zayn Malik, 26, made a surprise appearance and walked the purple carpet with singer Zhavia Ward, 18.

Zayn wore a beard and thick hair during his appearance, which marked the first time that he’s been seen at an official event since he attended the Met Gala with ex girlfriend Gigi Hadid in 2017.

Will plays Genie in the Guy Ritchie directed movie produced by Walt Disney Pictures and the pair teamed up for photos by a ginormous magic carpet.

The film is based on the live-action adaptation of Disney’s 1992 animated film of the same name which starred Robin Williams in the role.

The Sun told how Will Smith’s career is languishing and he’s keen to conjure up that wise-cracking magic of old with the new release, out in the UK on May 24.

However, Will’s performance in the £125million family-friendly film came under fire after the response to his computer-generated genie was scathing.

However, fans will be hopping the movie will be full of fun, excitement and glorious songs.

Meanwhile, Alfonso revealed his wife Angela gave birth to their third child, a baby girl, last week.

The 47-year-old took to Instagram to share an adorable snap of his new daughter wearing a tiny pink and grey striped hat with a large bow.

He has a fourth child, Siena Ribeiro, 16, with his first wife Robin Stapler, and two sons – AJ, five, and Anders, three – with writer Angela, whom he married in 2012.
