Disney Has Finally Found Its Aladdin & Jasmine


It’s a whole new world with a whole new cast.

The news was officially announced at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, on Saturday: Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott are your new Aladdin and Jasmine in Guy Ritchie’s live remake of the animated classic.

Will Smith will play the Genie, which was already rumored.

The original animated movie was a comic take on the Arabic folk tale of a young man granted three wishes by a genie trapped in a lamp.

“Aladdin” was the highest-grossing film of the year in 1992, and won Academy Awards for best score and best song for “A Whole New World.”

Mena Massoud is a Canadian actor whose credits include the series “Jack Ryan,” “Open Heart” and “Saving Hope.”

Naomi Scott also has an impressive resume, recently starring as Kimberly Hart, the Pink Ranger, in the big-screen “Power Rangers” reboot.

And here they are:

Isn’t there quite the resemblance between the former Aladdin and the next one?

Naomi Scott as Jasmine

I don’t think so anyone else could be more suitable for Genie other than him

You ain’t never had a cast like this!
