Will Smith's Genie is definitely blue in the upcoming live-action remake of "Aladdin." And everyone has some thoughts about that.
Disney rolled out a TV spot for the movie, which opens May 24, during the Grammy Awards Sunday night and it reveals Smith's blue Genie for the first time.
When the first photos came out in December, fans jumped over the fact that Smith was seen in human form (above). Smith himself reassured us all that he would be blue, just like the Robin Williams-voiced character in the 1992 animated version.
Now, this TV spot shows that Smith was telling the truth, and oh, is it some truth.
The trailer also provides glimpses at Mena Massoud's titular thief with a heart of gold, Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine, and the sprawling city of Agrabah. But let's face it, all anyone cares about is Smith's Genie and Twitter had plenty to say about his appearance:
Aladdin is a lovable street urchin who meets Princess Jasmine, the beautiful daughter of the sultan of Agrabah. While visiting her exotic palace, Aladdin stumbles upon a magic oil lamp that unleashes a powerful, wisecracking, larger-than-life genie. As Aladdin and the genie start to become friends, they must soon embark on a dangerous mission to stop the evil sorcerer Jafar from overthrowing young Jasmine's kingdom. Read More
