A new trailer for Disney’s live-action version of Aladdin has hit the web, and with it comes our first good look at Will Smith’s Genie in action. We also see a lot of Agrabah, the main cast, and what looks to be an exciting retelling of the classic animated film.
He’s blue, and honestly, it looks good. Granted, we don’t see Will Smith’s genie do half the bonkers stuff Robin Williams’ animated version did in this trailer, but Disney seems to be on the right track with the character so far. Could Will Smith end up providing a performance just as good as the original? Is it even possible to live up to the expectations for that character?
Aladdin is in theaters Friday, May 24. Keep tabs on all news regarding the film here at CinemaBlend, and for more on it be sure to read up on the details regarding the music for the feature, and what will be different in the new version.
