Will Smith is very… blue in Disney’s new trailer for its live-action Aladdin movie

Debuted at the Grammy Awards show over the weekend, the “Special Look” trailer reveals Will Smith as the Genie for the first time. The 1992 original animated movie’s Genie was blue, so I guess we should’ve expected that the new, live-action version of the Genie would also be blue. But it’s 2019. It’s a whole new world now. And it’s a world in which James Cameron’s Avatar and the inevitable because-it’s-the-internet-and-it’s-the-rules creepy Na’vi fetish stuff have kind of spoiled blue things forever. And if you weren’t thinking about it already, you are now.
