Disney has released a new teaser trailer for the live-action Aladdin, and we have our first look at Will Smith as the legendary blue genie. The design of the character is up for debate on the internet, and fans are intrested in seeing how Smith brings him to life in his own way. They didn’t mimic Robin Williams, so its a pretty diffrent genie to the previous one, it’s entirely Will Smith’s personality and style.
The teaser shows us how Aladdin was brought to the Cave of Wonders to get the lamp for Jafar
