Watch: Will Smith debuts as blue Genie in 'Aladdin' trailer

Feb. 11 (UPI) — Disney has released a minute-long trailer for its live-action remake of the 1992 animated movie musical Aladdin.

The clip, which has gotten nearly 2 million views since it was posted on YouTube Sunday, features Will Smith as his blue Genie character.

Aladdin’s iconic wish granter is seen bare-chested and bald-headed, except for a long, high ponytail. He also is wearing a gold chain around his neck and bracelets around his wrists.

In the preview, Genie appears when Aladdin enters a desert cave, then finds and rubs a lamp.

“You really don’t know who I am? Genie? Wishes? Lamp? None of that ringing a bell?” Genie asks his confused new master.

The late Robin Williams memorably voiced the character in the cartoon classic.

Guy Ritchie directed the remake, which stars Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Jasmine, Marwan Kenzari as Jafar, Navid Negahban as the Sultan, Nasim Pedrad as Dalia, Billy Magnussen as Prince Anders, and Numan Acar as Hakim.

It is due in theaters on May 24.
