Will Smith‘s Genie from Disney‘s upcoming live-action Aladdin has been receiving various reactions from netizens with some not knowing what to really make of it.
The trailer for the live-action Aladdin was recently revealed along with the first peak at Will Smith’s version of Genie.
Will Smith also posted a clip of the trailer on his Instagram and captioned it, “I told y’all I was gon’ be Blue!! Y’all need to trust me more often! #aladdin”
After taking a first look at Will Smith as Genie in the new Aladdin, netizens have been showing various reactions. Some were a little skeptical…
Will Smith looks more like a smurf than the genie. Hell if they ever make another smurf movie just CGI his face on a small body and it works. God the genie looks terrifying it's like some early 2000 youtube nightmare fuel right there.
