In the past few years, a ton of classic Disney movies have been remade. From The Lion King to Beauty and the Beast, there's really no stopping these remakes. Whether viewers love them or not, we have to watch them to see if they live up to our expectations. Well, the trailer for Disney's Aladdin was shown yesterday at the 61st annual Grammys, and people were not happy. Will Smith is getting absolutely roasted for his role in Disney's Aladdin and it's for this major reason.
When recreating films from the 90s, especially animated films, it can be hard to get everything right. And fans really think this is true for the new Aladdin movie. While some are saying that Jafar hasn't even hit puberty yet, most of the comments on the trailer are specifically towards Will Smith and his very blue body.
Will Smith is an actor that can play pretty much any role. Except maybe when CGI is involved. In the trailer for the movie, it looks super dark and mysterious... which is really not what Aladdin is about. If you didn't know, Will Smith's role in Aladdin is the Genie. And fans are literally wishing to unsee him as the Genie because of how weird it looks.
Compared to the 1992 version of Aladdin, of course, it looks different. It's a live-action film instead of a cartoon, but fans are thinking that Will Smith is way too blue. The comments section about Will Smith's character is way too savage, but some of them you may laugh out loud at. Here are a few:
Ouch to all of these comments. Aladdin will be in theatres on May 24th, but it seems like a lot of fans won't be paying money to see it. You can view the trailer below, but be warned, some dramatic people said it gave them nightmares!

If you're a Toronto millennial and you want to own a house, you should've been making nearly $200,000 a year before you were born.
That's according to a new report from the National Bank of Canada (NBC), released on May 4, which breaks down house prices in Toronto and calculates how long it takes to save up for a down payment on condos and non-condos in various Canadian cities.
The NBC reported that buying the average Toronto down payment on a house or non-condo would take an enormous 24.75 years (or 297 months) while on $183,594 yearly household income and putting away 10% each month.
Buying a Toronto condo isn't that much cheaper now, the NBC said; a Toronto household needs to make $125,202 each year and save up for 51 months to snag a down payment according to the data.
But Toronto isn't even the most expensive city on the list — that honour goes to Vancouver, where residents have to save up for over 30 years to put a down payment on a non-condo.
People's Party of Canada (PPC) leader Maxime Bernier was slapped with a penalty of $2,800 on Saturday, after he went ahead with a "Freedom Rally" in Regina, Saskatchewan.
Several events, which Bernier describes as "Freedom Rallies," took place across southern and central Saskatchewan this weekend, with those involved speaking out against the province's latest public health measures.
According to CTV News, the Saskatchewan government and its official opposition, as well as the region's minister of health, urged Bernier to cancel the protests due to COVID-19 concerns.
However, many of the demonstrations went ahead as planned, with Bernier apparently receiving fines of $2,800 for "speaking at the Freedom Rally" in Victoria Park on Saturday, May 7. He later posed with his ticket and smiled, while describing it as "unjust, unjustified and unconstitutional."
Police suggest that around 200 people were present at this particular event. A total of 16 penalties were issued for violations of the Saskatchewan Public Health Order.
