First ‘Aladdin’ TV Spot Reveals Will Smith as Genie

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

The new teaser for the live-action remake of Aladdin is out, and we finally have our first look at Will Smith as the incomparable Genie.

Smith, who announced in October that he'd be playing the live-action version of Robin Williams' iconic Disney role, was transformed in a brief commercial for the movie during the show. The actor assured people that he would indeed be in blue like the original animated Genie. In this new clip, however, the dynamic shifts as the CGI-produced character make an appearance for the first time.

Aladdin is being directed by Guy Ritchie, and features Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Jasmine and, obviously, Smith as Genie.

"Bring me the lamp", he orders, his loyal pet parrot perched - silently for now - on his shoulder.

"You really don't know who I am?" 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.

Smith shared a few snapshots of his Genie on his Instagram after the trailer aired. "There hasn't been a lot of that hip-hop flavor in Disney history".

The "Aladdin" reboot hits theaters May 24.
