Aladdin Fans Turn Will Smith’s Blue Genie Into Shrek And It’s Even Worse

Aladdin Will Smith Shrek Blue GenieFollowing the reveal of Will Smith’s Blue Genie from Disney’s upcoming live-action adaptation of the animated classic Aladdin, fans took things to the next level and transformed him into a live-action version of Shrek.

Disney surprised fans last night with a special look that finally revealed Will Smith as the iconic blue Genie, voiced by Robin Williams in the original film. The reaction online criticized Will Smith’s look for being rather unsettling, with the muscular character design being described as unsettling, nightmarish, and even something out of a bad acid trip. But some fans felt that Will Smith not only looked like a blue version of Shrek, but also moved like the animated Ogre from Dreamworks as well.

After the response to Will Smith’s Genie in Aladdin went viral, it was only a matter of time before fans took out their frustration on Will Smith’s Shrek like Genie and went the extra mile to reimagine the live-action Disney design a little closer to the Dreamworks fairy tale. Check it out below!

So what do you think? Do you like Will Smith’s design for the blue Genie? Or does he look more like Shrek to you? Let us know your thoughts down in the comments below!

Guy Ritchie has directed the film from a script written by John August (Big Fish) and Game of Thrones writer Vanessa Taylor. August and Ritchie are also producing the film with Dan Lin. Marc Platt (La La Land) and Chris Montan (Frozen) are consulting for the project with Jonathan Eirich (Deathnote) serving as executive producer.

The cast features Mena Massoud who stars in the titular role of Aladdin, as well as Will Smith as the Genie, Power Rangers star Naomi Scott as Jasmine, Numan Acar (Homeland) as Hakim, the head of the guards and Jafar’s right-hand man, and Marwan Kenzari as Jafar. In addition, the live-action remake features new characters made just for the film played by Billy Magnussen (Game Night) and former Saturday Night Live comedienne Nasim Pedrad.

“Aladdin” is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future.

The film is currently slated to hit theaters May 24, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on Disney’s upcoming live-action adaptation of the animated classic Aladdin as we learn it.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’

Previous1 of 7

Batman Ben Affleck Matt ReevesBen Affleck is officially out as Batman and it’s a pretty sad day.

Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he’s no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.

Three years have quickly sped by and we’re officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and now everyone’s attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that’s around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.

In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
