Official Casts Update On Aladdin Remake

Disney has now officially confirmed who will be starring in their upcoming live-action remake of Aladdin. The studio’s Sean Bailey made the announcement during the Live-Action panel at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California earlier today.

Will Smith will be portraying the Genie. The role of the big, blue loveable wish-giver was, of course, played by the late, great Robin Williams in the 1994 original. Casting a popular actor with a very different but similar knack for stealing the scene like Smith is a good call by Disney.

As for the two lead roles of Aladdin and Jasmine, Disney have chosen Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott. Just as has always been the studio’s intention, they’ve cast a young, upcoming actor as the diamond in the ruff. This will be Massoud’s big break after a few roles in TV series like Jack Ryan

Aladdin will be directed by Guy Ritchie as his first movie for Disney.
