What do you think? Too blue or just the right kind of blue?

The new Aladdin trailer was released at the Grammy’s and it’s got a blue Genie!

While the Grammys are all about music, last night the Grammy’s were also about the blue Genie.

The first teaser for Aladdin immediately raised concerns about the color of Genie.

The movie’s first full trailer put those rumors to rest. Yes, we are going with the original theme here, just like the classic one played by Robin Williams.

We only get to see a bit of Genie at the end but people are surely loving the blue hues here.

The film cast Canadian actor Mena Massoud as Aladdin. Princess Jasmine is being played by Naomi Scott.

Social Media Reacts to Blue Genie

Here are some social media reactions for the Genie reveal:

Some people think that the CGI Genie seems a little off.

Of course, some comparisons were made.

You know what they say. Be careful what you wish for.


Shortly after the teaser trailer for Aladdin was released, a series of pictures were out for our first look at the live-action adaptation of the Disney animated film.

The first objection arose when Will Smith as Genie was not blue, and therefore not true to the original.

To clear the air, actor Will Smith assured people that the Genie will be blue.
