A couple months back, the internet was in an uproar over Will Smith's Genie in the upcoming live-action Aladdin remake, all because he wasn't colored blue like the original. However, Smith quelled people's fears and promised fans his character would indeed be blue.
And as it turns out, he wasn't lying! Disney unveiled a brand-new trailer for the Aladdin remake and it features Smith in his full genie makeup. But now people are fussing over the blue look as well. It seems fans will never be satisfied with Genie's look, proving that maybe some films should just stay as cartoons.
Disney shut down those critics, however, by dropping its first official trailer on Sunday night, featuring a very blue Genie.
The trailer aired during the 61st annual Grammy Awards yet still managed to steal people's attention — but not necessarily in a good way.
Some of the shots, like this one of Aladdin (played by Mena Massoud) peering into the Cave of Wonders, were utterly breathtaking
For those who need a refresher, the Cave of Wonders is that lion-head cave with the deep, creepy voice. Inside is a mysterious realm where Aladdin finds Genie's lamp.
There's a colorful shot of a celebration in the streets, which is most likely part of that show-stopping "Prince Ali" sequence.
Make way for Prince Ali! This sequence in the original film was a fan favorite, so fingers crossed they do it justice!
Naomi Scott looks absolutely incredible as Jasmine, but we already knew that!
Scott told The Hollywood Reporter that her take on Jasmine emphasizes her leadership skills. "You really get in this adaptation of the movie that her heart is for her people, and her main objective is what’s best for her kingdom," she said. "And you really get a sense that she has those leadership qualities within her."
Oh, and of course we get a glimpse of hot Jafar, played by Marwan Kenzari.
When the first photos were released from the film, fans were rooting for evil due to their thirst for Kenzari's Jafar.
But most important, we finally saw Smith's Genie in his full makeup and floating glory. He is ... very blue.
"You really don't know who I am?" Smith's Genie asks Aladdin. "Genie? Wishes? Lamp? None of that ringing a bell?"
Watch the full trailer below and see all the characters for yourself.
Regardless of whether you support the live-action remake or not, you have to admit it looks gorgeous. You know, besides Smith as a floating blue guy.
