Walt Disney Pictures released a new First Look on Sunday night for Aladdin. The one minute spot finally shows us some actual action as opposed to some general location shots as we saw in the previous teaser. The big moment, however, was we finally got a look at Will Smith’s Genie in blue.
In some previous images that were released, the Genie looked like Will Smith and there was no blue to be seen. The actor then promised that he does indeed spend a good portion of the movie in the classic color. The problem now, however, is that fans still aren’t thrilled with the look.
Starting a support group for everyone who can’t unsee Will Smith’s genie.
