Aladdin trailer gives glimpse of Will Smith as Genie - and he's blue

Aladdin trailer gives glimpse of Will Smith as Genie - and he's blue”

The new TV commercial, dubbed a "Special Look" at the remake, shows us the new Genie in all his glory and he certainly looks a lot more blue this time.

Aladdin is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future. Could Will Smith end up providing a performance just as good as the original?

"The great thing about the role of the Genie is that it's essentially a hyperbole for who that individual actor is, so it's a wonderful platform and tapestry for an actor to fill his boots on". "He was big enough to feel like a force - not so muscular that he looked like he was counting his calories, but formidable enough to look like you knew when he was in the room".

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

The blueness of the genie seems to sit in opposition to previous studio-released looks of Smith in full genie getup, which feature a decidedly less-blue skin tone.

There's plenty more goosebump-inducing moments in the one minute clip, including the "do you trust me?" meeting of hands before Aladdin and Jasmine go over sideways and under on their Whole New World magic carpet ride.
