During the Grammys this weekend, Disney unveiled our first sneak peek at their upcoming live-action Aladdin along with our first look at a very blue Will Smith.
With previous promo images showing Smith with his natural skin color, we wondered whether Disney was sticking with a more realistic looking Genie rather than going all-out CGI. However, in this “Special Look” we get to see that Smith has certainly blue himself.
It’s a short 30-second teaser, and my God if this isn’t the most confused I’ve ever been about an upcoming movie. On one hand, I appreciate Disney sticking true to its original, but on the other hand… Blue Will Smith is just… a bit terrifying.
Anyway, check out the trailer below, and the promo image above for your first look at old Genie.
Aladdin hits theatres on May 24, 2019.
