Disney's Live-Action 'Aladdin' Trailer Reveals Will Smith's Snarky Genie

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

Disney gave Aladdin fans a glimpse of the upcoming live-action movie during the 2019 Grammy Awards on Sunday but unfortunately, many fans were not impressed with what they saw.

Aladdin also stars Naomi Scott, Navid Negahban, Nasim Pedrad, Billy Magnussen, and Numan Acar. The trailer for Aladdin aired last night during the Grammys and it seems to have lost the momentum it once had. See the trailer in the window below.

Disney's Aladdin trailer introduces viewers to the titular hero's adventure and his wish-granting sidekick, the Genie.

"Y'all need to trust me more often", Smith added.

Will Smith previously admitted he initially found the task of playing the Genie a daunting one, telling Entertainment Weekly: "Whenever you're doing things that are iconic, it's always terrifying".

Will Smith is pictured in the new sneak peek painted entirely blue, with a shaved head, goatee and gold jewellery.

"LEMME OUT! Can't wait for y'all to see Me BLUE!" exclaimed the actor under his Instagram post of a magic lamp sat on a deep purple background.

But there was something fans were not prepared for - Will Smith as a blue Genie. "He brings his own style and hip hop flavor to it". But Will Smith's Genie avatar is the biggest highlight of this latest instalment of the promotional material coming out for director Guy Ritchie's movie. "I think this is the first Disney trailer I've ever disliked".

Will Smith's Genie certainly is a lot more busy and involved than Robin Williams, but is it better?

The film will drop in theatres from May 24, 2019 in the United Kingdom, and May 23 in Australia and North America.
