Whether this means Smith's genie is capable of un-blueing himself by shape-shifting remains to be seen.

Disney has released the first TV spot for its upcoming live-action remake of Aladdin, directed by Guy Ritchie, and it offers our first look at Will Smith as Genie.

ETonline points out reaction online was mixed moments after the video was broadcast, with some not sure what to make of Smith's version of the animated character from the original 1992 film. But Disney provided another image of the character that wasn't shown in the trailer, offering fans another look to consider before making their judgements. The photo caused a bit of a stir, forcing Smith to assure fans he would be blue in the film.

Smith posted the trailer to his Instagram, writing, "I told y'all I was gon' be Blue!" "Genie, wishes, lamp... none of that ringing a bell?" says a portly, blue Smith, who looks like a nightmarish Smurf.

The trailer opens with Aladdin (Mena Massoud) preparing to enter the Cave of Wonders, and we hear the evil Jafar's (Marwan Kenzari) voice for the first time.

But we'll all get the full picture this summer, when Aladdin premieres in theaters on May 24th.
