Internet Blows up the latest man in blue!
Disney Studios have just released the official trailer for the live action re-make of Aladdin.
Jafar looks nefarious, Princess Jasmine look as she should, and the Arabian nights song is still there to get stuck in your head, so already we’re off to a great start.
Alladin along with Abu, can be seen being led by Jafar into the infamous cave where he meets Genie. It all looks so good!
I cannot wait till the actual movie drops in May later this year.
It turns out The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Will Smith is playing the beloved blue character.
The Internet has since had very mixed responses from downright excited all the way to underwhelming. I can relate because the footage definitely has shock value.
And with great shock, comes great memes…and so it begins.

You Best Believe they didn’t stop there: Paul Giamatti from the Big Fat Liar movie.

There’s so much more films and other cartoons they reference, but I thought I would just highlight a few of my favorite ones.
