I love Will Smith, but I really think this role was meant for Dr. Tobias Funke. pic.twitter.com/3cgntr0cJA— Kyle Laker (@kyle_laker) February 11, 2019

Me: "I've just seen blue Will Smith"
Therapist: "FUCK DUDE. FUCK THAT. LIKE FUCK."
OH! DEAR! GOD! I AM NOT LIKING THIS ONE BIT, AT ALL! HONESTLY I WAS ALREADY SKEPTICAL WITH WILL SMITH AS THE GENIE WHEN I FIRST TOOK A LOT AT HIM, AND NOW I'M 100 PERCENT SKEPTICAL ABOUT THIS. IT PUTS ME OFF AND LOOKS SO WRONG, HELL IT'S EVEN TERRIFYING ACTUALLY! pic.twitter.com/fiH79leVK4— Mad Kaiser: Keyblade Master (@MadKaiser98) February 11, 2019
Damn, will smith looks unrecognisable as the genie pic.twitter.com/Ve8JfIbAfj— Andre Borges (@borges) February 11, 2019
This is unsettling.
Will Smith genie makes me think of smooth Yoda. I don’t know why. I guess they both unnerve me. pic.twitter.com/e4yr0ZdvP7— Brian Bear (@BeaPeaBear) February 11, 2019
There is already an internet folklore emerging about the genie.
I feel nothing but a deep primal fear towards Will Smith as the new Genie. His ears are so big and his forehead stretches into infinity. I want to kill him with fire. Why do we have to suffer? A new #Aladdin film is just pointless. Please God, save us from this hell. pic.twitter.com/ogUlgDdkqN— almighty axolotl (@almightyaxolotl) February 11, 2019
"Primal fear" is accurate.

Disney has yet to respond to the internet outcry.
