The First ‘Aladdin’ Trailer Is Here & Twitter Isn’t Having Will Smith’s Genie

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

"Will Smith genie is what appears in my room when I have sleep paralysis", YouTube blogger Jenny Nicholson tweeted.

In the EW article, Ritchie described Smith's transformed look as "a muscular 1970s dad". The first trailer of the film debuted in October 2018, though fans only got a quick look at Aladdin and his famous lamp. Maybe, then, the better, tougher question is, is there a reason why Will Smith's Genie should exist?

Disney has had a lot of animated films released theatrically or direct-to-video, sometimes in collaboration with other studios. When Entertainment Weekly published a cover with a first look of the actor as Genie, originally voiced by Robin Williams, some fans were upset that he wasn't blue.

In addition to Massoud and Smith, Aladdin will star Naomi Scott, Marwan Kenzari, Navid Negahban, Nasim Pedrad, Billy Magnussen, and Numan Acar.

An earlier teaser, showing Massoud but not Smith, was released in the fall. The film's antagonist, Jafar, was also seen, but seemed less than enthused according to some. However, Smith's lively and bright performance steals the spotlight. "Genie looks really bad and too human, they should've went with a totally CGI Genie imo", said another. (Personally, while it's a bit unremarkable, I don't see anything awful in the footage.) It's important to remember that, with the film's release more than three months away, animation is likely incomplete.

On Twitter, one man wrote, "I'm sorry but Will Smith as the Genie in #Aladdin is nightmare fuel".

The Aladdin reboot is set to hit cinema screens on 24th May 2019.

People compared the Genie to SpongeBob characters, Kylo Ren, and even Paul Giamatti's character in Liar Liar.
