  • Check Out Blue Will Smith in New Aladdin Teaser

It remains to be seen how fans will react to the new Genie, especially after the response to this first trailer.

We are now in an era where the live-action remake is king and the latest film to take on the trend is Disney's Aladdin. The 1-minute video teaser, which was also uploaded to YouTube, includes a look at Will Smith as Genie. While the original role was played by the late Robin Williams and can never be duplicated, Smith's appearance in this most recent trailer proves he's most certainly bringing the snark. And I say this as someone who's been an ardent defender of Ritchie's last couple of fun-filled blockbusters. "Genie? Wishes? Lamp? None of that ringin' a bell?"

Smith and Ritchie assured fans that Genie would be his big blue self once the film hit theaters.


Smith shared the trailer on Instagram, writing, "I told y'all I was gon' be Blue!" The film stars Will Smith as the Genie; Mena Massoud as Aladdin; Naomi Scott as Jasmine; Marwan Kenzari as Jafar; Navid Negahban as the Sultan; Nasim Pedrad as Dalia; Billy Magnussen as Prince Anders; and Numan Acar as Hakim.

There's plenty more goosebump-inducing moments in the one minute clip, including the "do you trust me?" meeting of hands before Aladdin and Jasmine go over sideways and under on their Whole New World magic carpet ride.
