‘Robin Williams is somewhere in heaven disappointed,’ says a fan.

American publication Entertainment Weekly (EW) has given fans a sneak peek inside the “whole new world’ of the upcoming live-action remake of Aladdin but fans are distracted by one thing in particular – Will Smith’s genie costume.

Smith and EW posted the images on social media and within minutes the internet was bombarded with memes and commentary about Smith’s look.

Smith’s character was originally voiced by the late Robin Williams and the character’s blue skin is the first thing fans were left wondering about.

Others felt the look was reminiscent of the A-Team character, Mr. T.

One fan, in particular, believes Williams would have been disappointed in this interpretation of genie.
