Oh brother. Will Smith? Really? Ugh. I'm so tired of Will Smith.

I think Norm MacDonald would've made a better choice for Genie. He did an excellent job voicing the genie from Fairly Oddparents.

That's pretty much how I feel about it. I think the movie might be better off if Will Smith makes the part his own rather than attempting to recreate what Robin Williams brought to the role. I just don't think what Robin Williams did can be replicated.

But that's just it... I know what Will Smith will do to make it his own, and I know I'm not going to like it.

Truthfully, I have a hard time seeing myself loving what he does with it no matter what it is he does. If he tries to imitate Robin Williams, he'll pale in comparison to Robin's performance. If he makes the role his own, it'll still most likely not be as good as Robin's performance, but I personally find that to be the lesser of two evils.

They should've brought back Hank Azaria to be the Genie. He was the voice in the tv cartoon and it was actually a pretty good Robin Williams impression.

That was Dan Castellaneta that voiced the Genie in the tv show. He also voiced the Genie in Return of Jafar, Nasiria's Revenge, and Kingdom Hearts I and II.
