Disney released a special look trailer for its live-action adaptation of Aladdin Sunday night during the Grammy Awards show

The latest teaser for the Guy Ritchie-directed film was packed with recreated moments from the original animation including music and, of course, a blue genie.

In December 2018, Will Smith posted a first look image of the cast on the cover of Entertainment Weekly. In the photo, he appeared in costume but lacked the Genie’s hue and many fans criticized the portrayal. The comedian, however, promised that he would be blue in the upcoming film.

“I told y’all I was gon’ be Blue!” Smith wrote on Instagram. “Y’all need to trust me more often!”

Watch the special look trailer below. Aladdin, which  also stars Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott, will be in theaters May 24.
