Disney released a 60-second trailer of the movie ‘Aladdin’ at the Grammy’s. It showed what most ardent fans of the series were waiting for – Will Smith as Genie! The trailer shows the iconic blue character as Aladdin takes the lamp from the Cave of Wonders and rubs it.
Will Smith then closes in on the camera to say, “You really don’t know who I am? Genie, wishes, lamp — none of that ringing a bell?!”
The trailer saw mixed reactions from fans, most of whom were not very impressed by the new genie. However, others wanted to wait until they watched the movie to pass their judgement. Here are some hilarious reactions to the trailer.
