Will Smith as Genie is ‘nightmare fuel’
A new trailer for the live action remake of Aladdin has dropped and people are losing their minds over Will Smith as Genie.
Disney released a new trailer for the remake of the 1992 movie during the Grammy Awards and it's the first time we've got a glimpse of Smith in all his blue glory as the wish-granting character.
And it's fair to say people aren't too impressed with Smith's appearance in the upcoming movie.

This looks like an SNL host had to change into a genie costume 4 minutes after their monologue. pic.twitter.com/Czka8TNp3p— Peter Taggart (@petertaggart) February 11, 2019
Directed by Guy Ritchie, the Aladdin remake will be released in May and stars Will Smith, Mena Massoud as Aladdin and Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine.
