When Disney released the first official photos from their upcoming live-action Aladdin film back in December, a lot of fans were confused as to why Will Smith simply seemed to be playing himself with a ponytail as opposed to a blue CG character. Last night, however, Disney debuted a new trailer during the Grammys that introduces Smith’s new look as the Genie and proves that he will actually be blue after all. It is unclear if this was the plan from the beginning or if they decided to pivot based on online criticism (I suspect the former, but you never know). That being said, the jury is still out on whether this is actually an improvement. Aladdin is directed by Guy Ritchie and hits theatres on May 24th; check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.
