New live-action ‘Aladdin’ trailer reveals a very blue Will Smith as Genie

Disney dropped the new teaser for the live-action Aladdin during the 61st GRAMMY Awards.

The teaser gave us the first look at the villain, Jafar, and Aladdin’s faithful companion, Abu, but one thing everyone cannot stop talking about is Will Smith’s blue Genie.

When the first pictures of the live-action Aladdin were released in Entertainment Weekly, Will Smith’s Genie was not blue and many people were concerned, despite Smith assuring everyone he would be blue in the movie.

However, Disney squashed those concerns when a very blue Genie appeared at the end of the trailer.

People online were quick to express their disappointment, with many Twitter users horrified with the look they gave the beloved character.

Still, Disney gave us the blue Genie we were all asking for, just not in the way we all wanted.
