New 'Aladdin' trailer gives first look at Will Smith as Genie

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

The much-awaited trailer of Aladdin was finally released and people are even more excited!

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.

This film will arrive on the silver screen among a slew of recent remakes that Disney is undertaking.

Sadly, Disney fans have taken to social media to mock Smith's genie rendition. He's got a shirt on underneath his vest, and Jasmine's classic turquoise outfit has been revamped to look familiar while making it a bit more wearable for everyday princess life.

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

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.

Smith responded with an Instagram post assuring his followers that he would be blue in the film, and that the promo photo was just Genie in his human disguise.

"But I found a lane that pays homage". I dunno. Man, I just can't believe this can possibly be the real thing. For whatever it's worth, I don't think this looks awful, I'm just sort of amazed at how clumsily they've handled all these reveals.

"Y'all need to trust me more often", Smith added. Among the previously unseen shots is one of the Genie, in all his cerulean glory. The first trailer of the film debuted in October 2018, though fans only got a quick look at Aladdin and his famous lamp. Obviously there is a lot riding on this remake, but hopefully the team manage to pull it together and wow us with the story that we love so dearly.
