Just in time for Christmas, Disney has given the gift of the first good look at its upcoming Aladdin live-action film, along with what the Genie, Jasmine, and Aladdin’s costumes look like for the big screen. Naomi Scott, who plays Jasmine, isn’t just wearing the Disney princess’s iconic blue crop top and pants. She has several extravagant, regal outfits. Entertainment Weekly shows three of them in the first photos it has obtained form the film.

Scott spoke to EW about putting her own spin on the iconic Disney character. “Jasmine’s main objective at the beginning is to really protect her people and to do right by them,” she said. “She definitely isn’t a finished article at the beginning of the movie, but she has this beautiful arc and progression, and she goes from asking for what she wants to just taking it, and displaying that she is a leader.”
Director Guy Ritchie explained that Jasmine’s character generally has been tweaked to make her more feminist and reflective of the present-day ideals that will make her “a more rounded character and maybe not being such a stereotype of the time.”
