The New Genie in the Live-Action 'Aladdin' Ain't It
So during last night's Grammy Awards, a new and extended trailer for Disney's upcoming live-action Aladdin movie premiered.
\u201c\u201cYour life begins now... Aladdin\u201d. Watch this special look at Disney\u2019s #Aladdin, in theaters May 24.\u201d— Disney\u2019s Aladdin (@Disney\u2019s Aladdin) 1549850273
Viwers got to see more of the film's scenery, its colorful costumes, and even some shots of Hot Jafar. But the moment that had the Twittersphere lit up was definitely the reveal of the beloved Genie (played by Will Smith) towards the end of the trailer.
We didn't know what to expect, but seeing a big, blue version of Will Smith floating around in the air was...not it.
And the internet wasted no time when it came to roasting...
