First ‘Aladdin’ TV Spot Reveals Will Smith as Genie

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

Will Smith is getting jiggy as a genie in Disney's live action version of Aladdin.

Will Smith is pictured in the new sneak peek painted entirely blue, with a shaved head, goatee and gold jewellery.

However, many fans have reservations concerning the character of the Genie, originally voiced by beloved comedian Robin Williams. The film offered a glimpse what everyone was waiting for which is Will Smith in the popular blue genie avatar. "It's so spectacular, it's such a lovely movie and I can't wait for people to see it". It was fans' first "real" look because, back in December, Entertainment Weekly published photos from the film, including a shot of Smith dressed in Genie clothes but without the character's signature blue hue. Jafar can even be seen leading Aladdin to the Cave of the Wonders. Directed by Guy Ritchie, who brings his singular flair for fast-paced, visceral action to the fictitious port city of Agrabah, the film is written by John August and Ritchie based on Disney's Aladdin. As he wrote in a post on Instagram, "I told y'all I was gon' be Blue!" Robin Williams' original performance is famous for its sky-high energy.

Smith himself, however, appeared to be into his final form in Aladdin. "Love when they make animated into real live action though!"

Aladdin hits theaters across the USA on Friday, May 24. Some fans claimed that Will Smith's depiction of the Genie has ruined their childhoods while others said that he has caused them nightmares.
