Disney's Aladdin trailer features Will Smith as the Genie and it has already inspired memes about the CGI character.

Another teaser trailer for the upcoming live action Aladdin film dropped during The Grammys and people already have serious thoughts about Will Smith as the Genie. Will Smith as the Genie in Aladdin is a big CGI job and it has already garnered strong reactions from fans, including from people saying that the Genie would "haunt [their] nightmares". The Will Smith Genie memes are here and our one wish is that they never end.

People thought that Will Smith as the Genie looked like Thanos' cousin from out of town in the Aladdin trailer.

The Genie reminded some people of Tobias Funke from Arrested Development.

In fact, there were a LOT of TV and film comparisons.

People compared the Genie to SpongeBob characters, Kylo Ren, and even Paul Giamatti's character in Liar Liar. Who knew the Genie's energy was so versatile?

Was Will Smith's CGI Genie the stuff of nightmares? Uhh, kind of definitely.

Aladdin heads to theatres May 24, 2019 and we fully expect to see you all there for the splendour and wonder of Will Smith as the Genie.

Some may disparage the CGI Genie but I, for one, welcome our new blue overlord.

What do you guys think? Did you have THOUGHTS about Will Smith's CGI Genie in the Aladdin trailer?
