Will Smith's Genie Finally Revealed in New 'Aladdin' Sneak Peek

Will Smith's Genie Is the Star of the New 'Aladdin' Trailer

"You really don't know who I am?" asks the beloved wish-granter. I'd probably still be thinking about the hair if the blue hadn't been one enormous distraction. It will probably make a bajillion dollars despite looking like one of those fake movie trailers IGN used to make for April Fools' Day in the mid-2000s.

Smith posted the trailer to his Instagram, writing, "I told y'all I was gon' be Blue!"

"Well there goes my childhood it's been destroyed by Will Smith as the Genie", Caleb Wong wrote. Announced that the live-adaptation would be directed by Guy Ritchie in 2016, the new trailer reveals the image of the Genie.

Will Smith, 50, said that the late actor Robin William "infused the character with a timeless version of himself" and decided he would do the same.

Aladdin will be helmed by Guy Ritchie, with Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Jasmine and Will Smith as the Genie in the sprawling city of Agrabah.

Fans first had a look at the cast of the new film on an Entertainment Weekly cover in December.

He kind of looks like your dad dressed up for a Halloween party as Doctor Manhattan from Watchmen or, well, like someone just painted Will Smith blue. Could Will Smith end up providing a performance just as good as the original? (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.

Produced by Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, the film will hit theaters on May 24, 2019. There have also been rumors of a possible live-action remake of The Nightmare Before Christmas that could already be in the works.
