First ‘Aladdin’ TV Spot Reveals Will Smith as Genie

The New Live Action ‘Aladdin’ Trailer Is Here & Will Smith Is Very Blue

The New Live Action ‘Aladdin’ Trailer Is Here & Will Smith Is Very Blue

I gotta say, it is pretty weird seeing this big blue dude with Will Smith's smiling face plastered on top.

"Robin Williams infused the character with a timeless version of himself".

Will Smith stunned Grammys viewers Sunday night as he made a very blue appearance as the Genie from "Aladdin".

A thrilling and vibrant live-action adaptation of Disney's animated classic, "Aladdin" is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future. Mena Massoud stars as the street-rat-with-a-heart-of-gold Aladdin, with Naomi Scott as the handsome and determined Princess Jasmine.

The minute-long spot offers brief glimpses at Aladdin (Mena Massoud), Jasmine (Naomi Scott), Jafar (Marwan Kenzari) and the other denizens of Agrabah in the Guy Ritchie-helmed musical, due out May 24. For his part, Smith said, "I think it'll stand out as unique even in the Disney world".

The first photos of Genie were released by Entertainment Weekly in December, though Smith had to assure fans that his character would indeed be blue. "There hasn't been a lot of that hip-hop flavor in Disney history".

But we'll all get the full picture this summer, when Aladdin premieres in theaters on May 24th.
