New 'Aladdin' Teaser: See the First Footage of Will Smith's Genie

DISNEY NETFLIX

The photo caused a bit of a stir, forcing Smith to assure fans he would be blue in the film.

Disney has released the first TV spot for its upcoming live-action remake of Aladdin, directed by Guy Ritchie, and it offers our first look at Will Smith as Genie.

I gotta say, it is pretty weird seeing this big blue dude with Will Smith's smiling face plastered on top. Mena Massoud stars as the street-rat-with-a-heart-of-gold Aladdin, with Naomi Scott as the lovely and determined Princess Jasmine. "He was big enough to feel like a force - not so muscular that he looked like he was counting his calories, but formidable enough to look like you knew when he was in the room". The film stars Mena Massoud (Aladdin), Naomi Scott (Jasmine), Will Smith (the Genie), Billy Magnussen (Prince Anders), Nasim Pedrad (Dalia), Marwan Kenzari (Jafar), Numan Acar (Hakim), and Navid Negahban (Sultan).

Smith, who announced in October that he'd be playing the live-action version of Robin Williams' iconic Disney role, was transformed in a brief commercial for the movie during the show.

In the EW article, Ritchie described Smith's transformed look as "a muscular 1970s dad. He brings his own style and hip hop flavor to it".

Aladdin hits theaters May 24.
