She's stunning, but this doesn't give me Jasmine vibes at all. Need the iconic blue dress if you want her to look like the OG character.

Yep. He's blue.

Why am I still thinking Rami is playing Aladdin. I don't think that was every true but I was surprised when it wasn't him in the teaser

I agree with this internet take

IMO Disney messed up by putting Will Smith's face on Genie's character, not only because the role is so deeply tied to Robin Williams' performance, but also because the Genie is a non-anthropomorphic character. The Genie should've been a fully CGI designed character.

Because the role is so tied to Robin Williams (who didn't have his face on the Genie), when Will Smith puts his face on the Genie, it's like further taking ownership of the role, which sets himself up for massive scrutiny. Also in the animated movie, the Genie was very non-human, contorting his face and figure in so many ways that it just makes more sense to not use a human likeness in the live-action adaptation.

Plus it just looks creepy.

That's a good take, I agree with that even though I didn't really think of it before reading that post.

Yeah. Maybe that was subconsciously my issue too. I don't see a Genie, I see a blue Will Smith.
