The first look of Disney's Aladdin is out and as much as people were awaiting the film, they seem to be disappointed with the result. Will Smith plays the role of the iconic character Genie in the series. But his human form which does not have any blue has caused a backlash for the film. People have used to watching Genie in blue and the first picture thus looked underwhelming with lack of CGI treatment. And people are very clear about their displeasure on social media, all of them left with the same reaction. And Will Smith has assured fans that he will in a blue form most of the time on screen.

People took to Twitter to give their reactions to Aladdin's first look which were released by Entertainment Weekly. Will Smith too shared it on his Instagram and told his fans that he will be blue most of the time. "This is how the Genie is in Human / Disguise Form. My character will be CGI most of the movie," he wrote on his Instagram. But before the clarification, fans were surely disappointed and some called it a pantomime. Check how fans on Twitter reacted to the first look of Alladin.

Basically, a simple human form of Genie is not a genie after all! And realising the intensity of the backlash that was going on in social spheres, the actor has given a clarification or rather a promise that we will get to see him in blue.

The film directed by Guy Ritchie will see title role of Aladdin played by Mesa Massour and Jasmine played by British actress Naomi Scott. Well, let us wait for the childhood magic to be recreated on big screens.
