Instead of doing the right thing and casting Sinbad as the genie in the live-action remake of Aladdin, Disney picked his fellow 90s sitcom star Will Smith for the role.
Twitter isn't impressed with Smith's look.
Will Smith looks like Goro from Mortal Kombat 💀 #Aladdin #Disney pic.twitter.com/xIVKEGR3pa— ToeKnee (@tonyshaazam) December 19, 2018
Will Smith’s genie hair in the live-action #Aladdin is going to be a major source of anxiety for me in 2019. pic.twitter.com/FwG44LHiUj— Jason Carlos (@jaarlos) December 19, 2018
They got Will Smith looking like Overton from Living Single. pic.twitter.com/1nJtPc8y9G— Gustavo Romero (@Gustavo16070184) December 19, 2018
They could've picked the random people that dress up at the Disney parks and they'd look more the part than the cast of this movie. Will Smith's fuckin bun, what the hell lol. pic.twitter.com/VaUiOcMoLc— Elvis The Alien (@ElvisTheAlienTV) December 19, 2018
ALADDIN- Right, but I don't get it— 💐🏳️🌈Lulu🏳️🌈💐 🍑🍨🍑🍨🍑 (@luulubuu) December 19, 2018
GENIE- Focus, man. Is not that hard; Ventus is part of Sora's heart. That's why Roxas looks like Ventus AND can have two keyblades; one for Sora, one from Ventus. Vanitas is back and wants to reunite with Ventus in order to open the Kingdom Hea pic.twitter.com/DjuG6OEPui
I saw "Will Smith" trending and my heart dropped! For a second I thought he was going to play Genie in a live-action version of Aladdin.— (((Joshua Malina))) (@JoshMalina) December 19, 2018
Will Smith for meme of the month? pic.twitter.com/UPQfKP1ae5— Dr Grandayy (@grandayy) December 19, 2018

Will Smith confirms that the version of Genie seen on the @EW cover is the Genie in 'human/disguise form,' and that his character will be mostly CGI in #Aladdin— Fandom (@getFANDOM) December 19, 2018
