Welcome to Your Daily Nerd Thing where every weekday we bring you a different nerdy thing we found on the internet. Disney keeps making live action versions of their animated movies. We have known there was a live action Aladdin on the way and a number of teaser images have popped up. But now we have a look at some actual footage in a Special Look video and everyone is talking about one thing above all, the wrong looking naked blue Will Smith CGI genie.
Early promotional images showed Will Smith wearing clothes and still looking like Will Smith. In fact everyone in the live action version is set to be wearing more clothing and/or more elaborate outfits than the animated movie. But in this trailer we see Will Smith with no clothing on and he is blue. Sure the CGI effects are probably not finished but this still just looks weird in all the wrong ways.
