Take a look at Will Smith as the Genie in new ‘Aladdin’ trailer

During Sunday night’s Grammy Awards, Disney released a new trailer for their upcoming live-action version of “Aladdin,” and we finally got a first look at many of our main characters walking, talking … and hovering above a mist of blue smoke.

* * *

Entertainment Weekly previously gave a glimpse of Smith in character, but he had yet to be tinted blue! The Sunday night video gives us a closer look at his elaborate transformation. There’s a point to his ears and goatee, a top braid on his head, gold jewelry around his wrists and neck, a red sash around his waist and a twinkle in his eye as he greets an astonished Aladdin, played by Mena Massoud, deep in a cave.

‘Aladdin’ Trailer Shows Will Smith’s Genie But Hides Everything Else

Okay, well, Will Smith as the Genie in Walt Disney’s live-action Aladdin looks like… Will Smith as the Genie in a Disney live-action version of Aladdin. As promised, he is indeed blue and does (for better or worse) resemble the original character design as performed by Will Smith as opposed to the late Robin Williams. Walt Disney dropped a 60-second TV spot during tonight’s Grammy awards. So, it’s a little odd that this second look at the movie features no onscreen singing and essentially no onscreen dialogue.

Marwan Kenzari’s Jafar has two unfortunately bland expository lines and Will Smith gets a brief intro, but otherwise, there’s actually very little content. Considering that this is a 60-second TV spot, there’s just not much here. We all assumed, falsely it would turn out, that Aladdin would be the big Super Bowl reveal last weekend, but going with the Grammys makes just as much sense. But the Toy Story 4 TV spot was just that, a context-free single sequence. And even the Avengers: Endgame TV spot was incredibly sparse. Even if you argue that Disney is understandably being coy with the fourth Avengers flick, the Mouse House has, in general, been quite close-to-the-vest with their big summer 2019 projects. To be fair, that could just be the freedom of not having to give away the store.
