VIDEO: First Look at Will Smith as Blue Genie in Live-Action Aladdin

Disney just released a new sneak peak trailer for the Live-Action version of Aladdin which is coming to theaters later this year, and in it we get our first look at Will Smith all decked-out as the Blue Genie!

Will Smith as Blue Genie Aladdin

A little while ago we saw Will Smith as Genie in a big Entertainment Weekly spread with behind-the-scenes photos, but in the pictures Smith wasn’t blue.  Initially fans were outraged, but then Smith tweeted out that he would indeed be blue in other parts of the film, and now we finally get to see that.

There were some other cool moments in the trailer too.  This one of a royal parade coming down the streets of Agrabah:

We get a look at Marwan Kenzari as Jafar as he’s leading Aladdin to the Cave of Wonders in search of the lamp:

and then the moment when Genie is coming out of the lamp:

Looks like there are going to be some dangerous moments for Aladdin here:

Here’s the latest Aladdin sneak peak and Will Smith at the Blue Genie:

So while we don’t know how much time Will Smith will be blue for the movie, it looks like some moments will have him in the blue makeup and others he will be blending in as a normal looking guy.

In case you missed it, here is the original Aladdin trailer released a few months back:

Aladdin features: Will Smith as Genie, Mena Massoud as Aladdin and Naomi Scott as Jasmine.  It’s directed by Guy Ritchie and will also have two new songs written by Alan Menken as well as songwriters, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul helping him.  Look for Aladdin in theaters May 24th, 2019.

From this clip I'm still unimpressed with even the "blue" Genie. I do hope the CGI will be improved by the time the time the movie comes out compared to this clip. Also, I haven't seen a lot of Marwan Kenzari as Jafar, but I hope he adds a bit more personality and evil to the role. He seemed rather monotone and indifferent in this clip. Aladdin is one of my favorite Disney movies so I have high expectations for this live-action remake.

thanks for the comment Morgan. Yeah I think the final version of Genie will be a bit better so I'll hold off my judgement until then. Aladdin is one of my favorites too so let's hope they don's screw it up!
