FIRST LOOK AT BLUE WILL SMITH AS THE GENIUS OF ‘ALADDIN’

Is the controversy back?

When Will Smith’s image as the live-action Genius of ‘Aladdin’ was revealed, critics came forward for a very clear reason: the character was not blue. Accustomed to the Genius of the original film, and bearing in mind that they were going to respect the version of Ron Clements and John Musker as much as possible, we were a little disappointed to see that it maintained the real colour of the performer.

However, shortly after the controversy, Smith himself confirmed that the Genie would be blue, thanks to the CGI that was yet to be added to the film. Apparently, the poster was developed earlier as the effects were not finished.

Now, an image confirming this information has been leaked on the internet. An Instagram user has uploaded a supposedly official Concept Art in which we see Smith’s Genius with his final appearance. It certainly looks much more like the original film:
