See Will Smith As Genie In Disney's Aladdin Trailer

While some people took to Twitter in awe of Smith's look as the Genie, others felt a bit less positive about the casting.

I gotta say, it is pretty weird seeing this big blue dude with Will Smith's smiling face plastered on top.

Disney released a new look at its live-action Aladdinmovie during the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards on Sunday.

"Robin Williams infused the character with a timeless version of himself". But Disney provided another image of the character that wasn't shown in the trailer, offering fans another look to consider before making their judgements. The actor assured people that he would indeed be in blue like the original animated Genie.

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

Smith shared the trailer on Instagram, writing, "I told y'all I was gon' be Blue!"

The trailer opens with Aladdin (Mena Massoud) preparing to enter the Cave of Wonders, and we hear the evil Jafar's (Marwan Kenzari) voice for the first time.

Then viewers see Aladdin entering a cave to get the lamp, rubs it and then Genie comes into focus.

Directed by Guy Ritchie, the man behind 2009's Sherlock Holmes, Aladdin hits theaters on May 24.
