'Aladdin' TV spot gives first look at Will Smith's blue genie

Will Smith's Genie Is the Star of the New 'Aladdin' Trailer

Some fans were anxious Smith would be abandoning the Robin-Willams-voiced character's blue colour - but now they definitely have what they wished for. "I told y'all I was gon' be Blue!"

Another tweeted: "Will Smith as the Genie in Aladdin is sooooo weird wtf".

"Dammit James Cameron, no one asked for more Avatar movies", wrote Josh Billinson of the Independent Journal Review in the caption of a screenshot of Smith in character. All those concerns have been put to rest now as the trailer shown at the 2019 Grammys officially introduced Smith as a very blue Genie.

Aladdin also stars Naomi Scott, Navid Negahban, Nasim Pedrad, Billy Magnussen, and Numan Acar.

Ironically, Disney caught flack in December after a teaser was released showing Will Smith in his natural form. The film's antagonist, Jafar, was also seen, but seemed less than enthused according to some. Not sure if it's the shade of blue they chose or just the fact that Smith is playing the character.

What do you think of Will Smith as the Genie?

The film will drop in theatres from May 24, 2019 in the United Kingdom, and May 23 in Australia and North America. All of Disney's "live-action" remakes - including the Lion King remake that is straight-up another cartoon, just made with photorealistic GCI rather than illustrations - are coming from a wrongheaded place.
