Will Smith's Genie Is the Star of the New 'Aladdin' Trailer

But the best bit comes right at the end as Aladdin, with Apu and a pixel-perfect CGI Magic Carpet right behind, rubs the magic lamp for the first time, unveiling the big handsome blue Smith.

Disney released a new trailer for their upcoming live-action adaptation of Aladdin at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards.

Well, they hadn't seen Smith as a blue Genie until a Sunday night Grammys commercial... and the internet is going bonkers. The photo caused a bit of a stir, forcing Smith to assure fans he would be blue in the film. Mena Massoud stars as the street-rat-with-a-heart-of-gold Aladdin, with Naomi Scott as the handsome and determined Princess Jasmine. The film stars Will Smith as the Genie; Mena Massoud as Aladdin; Naomi Scott as Jasmine; Marwan Kenzari as Jafar; Navid Negahban as the Sultan; Nasim Pedrad as Dalia; Billy Magnussen as Prince Anders; and Numan Acar as Hakim. Smith posted on his Instagram page. Ritchie, meanwhile, told the outlet that he "wanted a muscular 1970s dad" look.
