People are Not Happy with the First Pictures of Will Smith as the Genie In "Aladdin"


The first pictures of Disney's live-action "Aladdin" remake hit the web yesterday, and it seems like NOBODY is happy.  The main beef is that WILL SMITH's Genie isn't blue.  He's the color of . . . Will Smith.


But Will went on Instagram to set the record straight.  He said, quote, "Yes, I'm gonna be BLUE! :-)  This is how the Genie is in Human / Disguise Form.  My character will be CGI most of the movie."


Meanwhile, Will tells "Entertainment Weekly" that it was intimidating to take on the character, since there wasn't a lot of room to improve on what ROBIN WILLIAMS did in the original.


But one unique thing he did bring to it was a "hip-hop flavor" . . . something you don't see a lot of in Disney's history.
