New Aladdin trailer released during Grammys reveals Will Smith as ‘Genie’

Check Out Blue Will Smith in New Aladdin Teaser

The Genie, Jasmine and Aladdin appear in the latest trailer for the film, giving fans a first look at Smith's character. There's already been one brief teaser trailer - released back in October - but since then it's been all quiet other than those divisive images, which is a little odd in itself for a film of this size. The movie will feature a new repertoire of songs by Alan Menken and La La Land songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Menken originally collaborated with Howard Ashman and Tim Rice for the music in the 1992 animated version).

Last year, Entertainment Weekly debuted a first look at Aladdin - and featured Smith without any makeup or CGI enhancements. And remember how Smith reassured fans that he was, in fact, going to be blue in the final movie? Alongside 2017's Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, a live action of Disney classic The Lion King will hit the big screen this July.

The minute-long trailer shows Aladdin (Mena Massoud) making his way into the Cave of Wonders, upon the promoting of Jafar.

"I told y'all I was gon' be Blue!" he wrote in his caption. Smith posted on his Instagram page.

So as you saw at the end of the spot above, we finally saw what the Genie will look like for most of the film.

"The more I see of this Aladdin Remake, the more I wish I didn't see of it.Disney really needs to stop with this", wrote one Twitter user.

Aladdin opens on May 23 in Australia and May 24 in the United States and UK.
