Will Smith Makes His Very Blue Debut in Aladdin Trailer

As promised, Will Smith has granted fans' wishes and been transformed into a blue hue for Aladdin.

The new Aladdin teaser that debuted during the Grammys had our first look at Will Smith as the blue Genie, a.k.a. the Genie with abs, a.k.a. the Genie Who F*cks. Could Will Smith end up providing a performance just as good as the original?

For reasons that will probably become clearer in time, we also see the first version of Will Smith as the Genie; coming out of the lamp after being summoned by Aladdin.

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

The trailer, which you can see below, shows the character Jafar (Marwan Kenzari) leading Aladdin (Mena Massoud) to the Cave of the Wonders. "You really don't know who I am?" asks Genie. They were forced to speak up after an Entertainment Weekly cover story in December showed a pre-CGI Smith, which prompted Twitter blowback.

One Disney exec told EW that Will's Genie is part Fresh Prince and part Hitch. I think it'll stand out as unique even in the Disney world. Aladdin opens in theaters on May 24.
