Needless to say, the Genie became a meme upon arrival, swarming the Internet like the sizzling magma within the Cave of Wonders.

Disney just debuted the latest trailer for their highly anticipated live-action remake of Aladdin, and they finally granted your wish: your first full look at Will Smith in action as the Genie. In this new clip, however, the dynamic shifts as the CGI-produced character make an appearance for the first time. Mena Massoud stars as the street-rat-with-a-heart-of-gold Aladdin, with Naomi Scott as the handsome and determined Princess Jasmine.

"You really don't know who I am?"

But the best bit comes right at the end as Aladdin, with Apu and a pixel-perfect CGI Magic Carpet right behind, rubs the magic lamp for the first time, unveiling the big lovely blue Smith.

Smith posted the trailer to his Instagram, writing, "I told y'all I was gon' be Blue!"

Other members of the cast, led by director Guy Ritchie, include Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Jasmine, along with Marwan Kenzari, Nasim Pedrad, Billy Magnussen and Numan Acar.
