During the Grammys, we got a chance to see another sneak peek at the new live-action film of the Walt Disney animated movie Aladdin. This time however we see familiar sights and a loveable actor, Will Smith! Smith back in December had this to say about getting into the part of Genie and describing how his take on Williams version of the beloved character:
“There’s a little bit less mimicking — there’s a James Brown piece that we do but a little bit less mimicking. The thing that will be the major addition to me playing the Genie is the hip-hop base. I think that’ll be fun for people. I think it’ll stand out as unique even in the Disney world. There hasn’t been a lot of that hip-hop flavor in Disney history!”Will Smith
