Fans have been treated to a first look at Will Smith’s debut as the blue Genie in the upcoming live action remake of Aladdin.

Disney unveiled the latest trailer for their new film during Sunday night’s Grammy Awards.

It shows Smith in character complete with blue skin and black goatee beard.

His witty take on the character sees him ask a confused Aladdin: ‘You don’t know who I am? Genie, wishes, lamp, none of that ringing a bell?’

Speaking about the role Smith told Entertainment Weekly: ‘Whenever you’re doing things that are iconic, it’s always terrifying. The question is always, ‘Where was there meat left on the bone?’

‘I think it’ll stand out as unique even in the Disney world. There hasn’t been a lot of that hip-hop flavour in Disney history.’

Aladdin also stars Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine, Mena Massoud as Aladdin and Marwan Kenzari as vizier Jafar.

It’s the second Disney live-action remake this year, with Dumbo set for a April release. Fans can also look forward to The Lion King  this summer.

Aladdin is expected to be released this May at Eden Cinemas.
