Fans have been introduced to the whole new live-action world of Aladdin—and they’re not so happy about it.
Entertainment Weekly published first-look photos of the upcoming Disney remake, due out in theaters in May, on Wednesday. In the snaps, fans of the 1992 animated classic get to see Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott as everyone’s favorite carpet-flying couple, Aladdin and Jasmine.
Topping off the trio, Will Smithappears in costume for the first time publicly as the beloved Genie. While their outfits are somewhat reminiscent of the characters’ iconic looks, fans have a lot to say about the revamped ensembles.
To start, there were a lot of concerns over the fact Smith was not blue.
So many, in fact, that the star soon addressed the issue on social media. “I’m gonna be BLUE!,” he responded to one fan on Instagram. “This is how the Genie is in Human/Disguise Form. My character will be CGI most of the movie.
There were also some questions about the Genie’s new ‘do for the film with some likening the style to Madonna’s iconic ’80s pony tail or Goro from Mortal Kombat.
