Has the sight of a blue Will Smith as the Genie changed your mind?

The trailer for Disney's new Aladdin movie has finally landed and honestly, the internet is not able.

It gives us our first look at Smith as the genie and just WOW.

He is the biggest name in the highly-anticipated release and had seriously big shoes to fill.
