If Will Smith could grant wishes, there’s a great chance “Aladdin” fans would wish to unsee his portrayal of the Genie … ’cause Disney fans are PISSED.
The new trailer to the live action “Aladdin” movie dropped Sunday during the Grammys and fans finally got a chance to see what Will’s gonna look like decked out as the blue Genie … and it’s safe to say practically nobody was impressed.
One fan tweeted, “It turns out that Will Smith’s Aladdin Genie will haunt my nightmares.” Another person said, “Will Smith genie is what appears in my room when I have sleep paralysis.”
It gets worse … “I just stepped outside and … how are there not crashed cars? How are there not people walking around in a daze? Have they not seen the Will Smith genie yet? Dare I show them?”
Will’s gotta feel like … damned if I do, damned if I don’t. Remember, back in December we got a glimpse of what Will’s gonna look like as the Genie character but everyone dragged Disney for not making him blue. After the trailer dropped, Will posted a video and picture on Instagram and captioned it, “I told y’all I was gon’ be Blue!! Y’all need to trust me more often!”

Some might argue he looked TOO blue. Safe to say everyone loves it when Will’s bad … but not this kinda bad.
