Will Smith is a RomCom style comedian and not really all that "Funny" he's funny by proxy because of the situations he's thrown into.Genie is a meh, better looking than expected, but Will Smith personality didn't work in that brief half second clip.
I guess it all depends on what they expect from the genie, are they going to harken back to Robin Williams? If so, Will Smith is a terrible choice and going with someone else would have been MOUNTAINS better.
Are they going a more serious role? If so, Will Smith is a terrible choice.
Jafaar sounded...just bad, go back in your mind to the past movie and he sounded like he was bad to begin with and now he just sounds like a guy. Wonder if Gilbert Gotfried will reprise his role.
As usual Hollywood doen't look like it can pull an original idea out of it's ass without shitting all over it, so they resort to re-releasing movies they had that did well...and STILL they shit all over them.
