'Aladdin' Fans React To First Official Look at Will Smith's Genie

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

Disney and Guy Ritchie's live-action take on Aladdin, the classic love story with a tinge of magic, officially showcased its wares back in December and though what we saw was pretty promising, fans seemed to be split over Will Smith's rendition of the iconic Genie. Mena Massoud stars as the street-rat-with-a-heart-of-gold Aladdin, with Naomi Scott as the attractive and determined Princess Jasmine. "Your life begins now, Aladdin".

But the best bit comes right at the end as Aladdin, with Apu and a pixel-perfect CGI Magic Carpet right behind, rubs the magic lamp for the first time, unveiling the big attractive blue Smith. Smith, as Genie, asks. "Genie? Wishes? Lamp? None of that ringing a bell?"

Check out the trailer below.

He's blue, and honestly, it looks good.

Viewers weren't shy about expressing their shock on social media, with many revealing they were disappointed with how Genie turned out, and some even drawing comparisons to Paul Giamatti's character in Big Fat Liar.

We learned about the Guy Ritchie-directed film past year and that Will Smith had signed on as the hilariously silly Genie.

In the EW article, Ritchie described Smith's transformed look as "a muscular 1970s dad".

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