Following months of teasers, Disney has dropped the first official trailer for its Aladdin live-action remake. Unsurprisingly, most of the talk has focused on Will Smith’s Genie, with not everybody convinced by the muscular blue spirit.

The preview doesn’t deliver much in the way of action, but fans get a glimpse of the movie’s main characters for the first time. These include Mena Massoud as the titular lead, Naomi Scott as Jasmine, and Marwan Kenzari as vizier Jafar.

Smith’s Genie who steals the show, however. “You really don’t know who I am?” asks the beloved wish-granter. “Genie, wishes, lamp — none of that ringing a bell?!”

So far, reactions to the trailer, which aired during the 2019 Grammys, have been mixed to say the least. Peep what people had to say about Smith’s Genie below.

Others — well, one person — dug Smith’s look, however.

Erm…
