See Will Smith As Genie In Disney's Aladdin Trailer

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

Will Smith Makes His Debut As The Hot Genie In New 'Aladdin' Teaser

Despite the initial hesitation from fans, Aladdin producer Dan Lin insisted Smith's take on the character would, in fact, be blue in the movie.

We learned about the Guy Ritchie-directed film past year and that Will Smith had signed on as the hilariously silly Genie. While the original role was played by the late Robin Williams and can never be duplicated, Smith's appearance in this most recent trailer proves he's most certainly bringing the snark. The film stars Mena Massoud (Aladdin), Naomi Scott (Jasmine), Will Smith (the Genie), Billy Magnussen (Prince Anders), Nasim Pedrad (Dalia), Marwan Kenzari (Jafar), Numan Acar (Hakim), and Navid Negahban (Sultan).

But let's be real: it's Will Smith that steals the spotlight in the trailer, showing up at the very end and making quite the impression.

"You really don't know who I am?!" he asks Aladdin, just after popping out of the lamp. For his part, Smith said, "I think it'll stand out as unique even in the Disney world. There hasn't been a lot of that hip-hop flavor in Disney history".
