However, an Instagram post from Smith reveals that the genie will, in fact, be blue. Smith tells fans not to worry, as the reveal shows Smith’s character in his human disguise.
“Yes, I’m gonna be BLUE,” Smith says of the Genie. “This is how the Genie is in Human / Disguise Form. My character will be CGI most of the movie.”
