Will, Jada, Jaden, and Willow Smith snuck into a Calabasas theater without anyone noticing, but when it was time to leave, people went crazy. Will was quickly swarmed by fans who lined up for selfies and hugs and it made them difficult to leave.

Of course, the Smith family made sure to greet all their well-wishers, and stopped to talk and take photos with everyone who asked.

Will plays the "Genie" in the live-action remake of the hit animated movie "Aladdin" that premiered in 1992. His role was first voiced by Robin Williams, whom Will admits made it difficult for him to adjust to because of the stellar way he portrayed his character.

"What Robin Williams did with this character - he just didn't leave a lot of room to add to the genie."

However, in the end, he was able to accept his role and enjoyed every bit of it. In fact, he says that playing the genie is the most joyful part of his career.

"So I started off fearful but then when I got with the music, it just started waking up that fun, childlike, silly part of me.

Although Will liked playing genie, people didn't think he was the right fit for the role. In fact, his critics even said he sucked the "joy" out of the genie character that kids are supposed to look up to and dream of as their perfect companion.

Regardless of what they think, though, "Aladdin" is now out in theaters and people seem to be enjoying it a lot.
