Disney previously unveiled the teaser trailer for the remake and it looked pretty magical. But everyone's favorite character, Genie, was kept in the bottle. We've all been dying to see how Will Smith will bring the Genie's magic to life. After all, he's got pretty big shoes to fill (Robin Williams). And while there's no doubt Smith is a fantastic actor, these just-released photos have us worried. They look....spectacularly bad.
Smith told EW that the "flavor" of his Genie "would be different enough and unique enough that it would be in a different lane, versus trying to compete" with Williams' portrayal. And judging by this "first look," he's definitely in a different lane. In fact, he might be on a different road completely.
Aladdin hits theaters May 24. Let's hope it's not as awful as the Genie photos make it seem!
