Another teaser for the live-action version of Aladdin dropped during the Grammys on Sunday, giving us more of a look at the much-anticipated film.
Fans saw more of Mena Massoud as Aladdin, but we also got to see Will Smith take on the important role of Genie. A very blue Genie.
A glimpse of Smith on the front cover of Entertainment Weekly was published back in December, leaving fans thinking that was the final look for Genie, and for some, perhaps wondering “why isn’t he blue?”
Well, the newest trailer showed a very blue Genie in action, which seemed to have caught people by surprise.
It might just be the CGI-ness of Genie, or the fact that he’s very, like, extremely blue, but it’s certainly shaken people up.
People had some… thoughts.
Will Smith as the genie looks like what one of those kids from the 90’s Fruit Gushers commercials would look like if they never found a cure for their fruit curse.
