Disney revealed the second trailer for their highly-anticipated Aladdin, offering the first true glimpse at Will Smith’s Genie.
After months of teasers, Disney has finally released the first official trailer for the Aladdin live-action remake. The TV spot, which aired Sunday night during the 2019 Grammys, introduced audiences to Will Smith’s blue Genie.
“You really don’t know who I am?” Smith says in the preview. “Genie, wishes, lamp—none of that ringing a bell?”
Back in December, MovieGasm.com noted that Smith’s “blue” look—familiar to fans of the animated version, and Robin Williams’ outstandingly motormouthed performance—was still being worked on by the movie’s special-effects wizards. And now, we finally have a good idea of what Smith will look like (and sound like) when he takes on the iconic character.
Aladdin, which also stars Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine and Mena Massoud as Aladdin—and is the second of Disney’s live-action remakes in 2019, after Dumbo but before The Lion King—is out May 24.
