“You Ain’t Never Had A Friend Like Me”

Disney gave fans another teaser for the live-action version of Aladdin during the Grammys and gave fans their first look at Will Smith as Genie, so obviously the internet had a lot to say on the matter…

In December, fans weren’t too happy with Will’s take on the character made famous by Robin Williams, but Will assured fans on Instagram that he was “going to be blue.” and that his character would be “mostly CGI.” Smith kept his promise when near the end of the trailer you hear Genie’s voice and then he popped out as Genie and was indeed blue. Will took to Instagram after the trailer debuted and said, “I told y’all I was gon’ be Blue! Y’all need to trust me more often!” Aladdin is in theaters May 24.

I’m honestly not happy Disney is cranking out all their original movies in live action. Some things just need to be left alone, like a shape shifting genie. Buttt I am REALLY excited to see how “Friend Like Me” turns out. (it’s the best Disney song outside of the Lion King)
