Considering the late comedy icon Robin Williams performed the voice of the original genie, Smith has some pretty big shoes to fill.

Remember when Disney released photos of their live-action "Aladdin" remake with actor Will Smith as a Genie, and fans hated that he wasn't blue?

He's blue, and honestly, it looks good.

A thrilling and vibrant live-action adaptation of Disney's animated classic, "Aladdin" is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future. But Disney provided another image of the character that wasn't shown in the trailer, offering fans another look to consider before making their judgements.

Wild Hunt Crossover Event Starts Today
The official Monster Hunter Twitter account has just confirmed that the new Witcher content will be available today. The available costume sets for the hunter are based on the main " Witcher " characters, Geralt and Siri.

But let's be real: it's Will Smith that steals the spotlight in the trailer, showing up at the very end and making quite the impression.

We learned about the Guy Ritchie-directed film previous year and that Will Smith had signed on as the hilariously silly Genie.

Smith also posted the trailer to his Instagram, and wrote: "I told y'all I was gon' be Blue!"

Aladdin is in theaters on May 24.
