As promised, Will Smith has granted fans' wishes and been transformed into a blue hue for Aladdin.

Disney released a new look at its live-action Aladdinmovie during the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards on Sunday. Could Will Smith end up providing a performance just as good as the original? To his credit, though, the actor promised us all shortly after that the character will indeed show up as a blue, god-like deity throughout the film and sure enough, we now have a look at his other form thanks to the new trailer up above.

A thrilling and vibrant live-action adaptation of Disney's animated classic, "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.

Last year, Entertainment Weekly debuted a first look at Aladdin - and featured Smith without any makeup or CGI enhancements.

"You really don't know who I am?" he asks.

Smith also posted the trailer to his Instagram, and wrote: "I told y'all I was gon' be Blue!"

The trailer opens with Aladdin (Mena Massoud) preparing to enter the Cave of Wonders, and we hear the evil Jafar's (Marwan Kenzari) voice for the first time.

Directed by Guy Ritchie, the man behind 2009's Sherlock Holmes, Aladdin hits theaters on May 24.
