Will Smith Makes His Very Blue Debut in Aladdin Trailer

Aladdin Teaser Twitter Reactions Fans Compare Will Smith’s ‘Blue’ Genie With Stuff Nightmares Are Made Of

Disney unveiled the latest trailer for its live action Aladdin remake during Sunday night's Grammy Awards, revealing for the first time Will Smith as the azure-skinned djinn. And remember how Smith reassured fans that he was, in fact, going to be blue in the final movie?

There's either too much CGI or too little CGI used on Will Smith here, and the ultimate effect is something right out of the uncanny valley. We get our first glimpse at Aladdin's faithful monkey companion Abu, hear what appears to be the first taste of Marwan Kenzari's take on the nefarious Jafar, and cop a short taste of an elaborate procession sequence that could potentially mirror the Prince Ali procession from the OG. They were forced to speak up after an Entertainment Weekly cover story in December showed a pre-CGI Smith, which prompted Twitter blowback. Smith posted on Instagram after the ad aired.

In the EW article, Ritchie described Smith's transformed look as "a muscular 1970s dad".

Huawei P30 launching in March
According to the new information, the design for the upcoming Huawei P30 and P30 Pro has leaked out on the internet. Like the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro , the P30 smartphones are also set to be unveiled at an event in March this year.

"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. He brings his own style and hip hop flavor to it".

Directed by Guy Ritchie, the man behind 2009's Sherlock Holmes, Aladdin hits theaters on May 24.
