Is Disney's Aladdin Genie a little too blue?
Disney's live action version of Aladdin, staring Will Smith is on it way to theaters, but it may have already made its way to your social media timelines as memes. At issue is the actors blue color making people wish the genie would go back in the bottle.
At the Grammy Awards Disney released a new trailer for the film which was met by disappointment and horror by some on social media. When Entertainment Weekly published a cover with a first look of the actor as Genie, originally voiced by Robin Williams, some fans were upset that he wasn't blue.
Smith responded on Instagram that he would indeed be blue in the final film, "I'm gonna be BLUE! This is how the Genie is in Human/Disguise Form. My character will be CGI most of the movie."
Disney and Smith may have over-delivered. Look for the film in theaters on May 24th
