Aladdin TRAILER: First full glimpse of Will Smith as blue Genie in latest teaser – WATCH
Watch the brand new clip above – in which there’s also a fresh look at Mena Massoud in the title role, and Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine. This is the first time Smith has been seen in video form as the Genie, having not been decorated with the full CGI in most previous images. Safe to say it’s already sparked quite the reaction on social media.
“Will Smith genie is what appears in my room when I have sleep paralysis,” tweeted one person.
“This looks like a blue version of Shrek. #Aladdin,” quipped another.
Said a third: “Was down for that #Aladdin trailer the whole way thru til I saw blue Will Smith.”
Other people were huge fans.
“Okay, sorry but is the Genie kinda hot? #Aladdin,” posted one enthusiast.
Another posted: “I mean I personally think the new #Aladdin trailer was amazing.”
The clip debuted during the Grammys telecast last night.
Ritchie previously said of his tone: “It’s probably got more humor in it than the original, I’m not sure if that happened by default…it was a question of finding new stuff.
“I just found there were moments we could make more humorous, and we, to a degree, made the narrative more contemporary and applicable to our time now.
“It was a movie of a particular moment, the 1992 one, and we are in the age we’re in now, so there are contemporary references about how we as a culture have shifted just because it’s a modern audience.
“Films change according to times that we’re in, so it does reflect contemporary issues in a classical theme.”
Aladdin is out on May 24.
