  • Check Out Blue Will Smith in New Aladdin Teaser

Disney unveiled the latest trailer for its live action Aladdin remake during Sunday night's Grammy Awards, revealing for the first time Will Smith as the azure-skinned djinn.

In the short clip, Aladdin, played by Mena Massoud, is seen uncovering the lamp and unleashing a whirlwind of blue smoke, from which the Genie emerges.

The new Aladdin teaser that debuted during the Grammys had our first look at Will Smith as the blue Genie, a.k.a. the Genie with abs, a.k.a. the Genie Who F*cks.

We learned about the Guy Ritchie-directed film a year ago and that Will Smith had signed on as the hilariously silly Genie.

There might be some aesthetic similarities between Williams and Will Smith 's take on the character, but that's where the comparisons end.

Snow to arrive late Sunday in DC, could impact Monday morning commute
In Seattle, snowfall from Sunday and Monday lingered into the week as below-freezing temperatures gripped the area. In the Midwest, more than 148,000 customers lost power in western MI following days of freezing rain.

In December, Smith reassured fans that "I'm gonna be BLUE!" after an Entertainment Weekly cover showed him in costume in human form.

In the EW article, Ritchie described Smith's transformed look as "a muscular 1970s dad". "You really don't know who I am?" asks Genie.

One Disney exec told EW that Will's Genie is part Fresh Prince and part Hitch. "There hasn't been a lot of that hip-hop flavor in Disney history", Smith added.

Directed by Guy Ritchie, the man behind 2009's Sherlock Holmes, Aladdin hits theaters on May 24.
