New “Aladdin” TV Spot Reveals Blue Genie

When Entertainment Weekly released exclusive images of Guy Ritchie’s Aladdin back in December, fans were a bit concerned about one aspect of Will Smith’s portrayal of The Genie: he wasn’t blue. Today, a new TV spot for the film offers the first images of Smith in all his blue-hued glory.

  • The newly-released, minute-long spot finds the Diamond in the Rough entering the Cave of Wonders as Iago and Jafar watch on.
  • With an orchestral version of “Friend Like Me” playing, we soon see Aladdin rub the lamp, revealing the Genie.
  • Other elements of the spot also seem to show the Prince Ali section of the film and give us a look at Jasmine.
  • In addition to Smith as the Genie, Aladdin also stars
    • Mena Massoud as Aladdin
    • Naomi Scott as Jasmine
    • Marwan Kenzari as Jafar
    • Navid Negahban as the Sultan
    • Nasim Pedrad as Dalia
    • Billy Magnussen as Prince Anders
    • Numan Acar as Hakim
  • Disney’s Aladdin jumps into theatres May 24th, 2019.
