These stars are headed to Agrabah!
On Saturday, Disney FINALLY announced the cast for their live action remake of Aladdin. As part of their D23 Expo, the studio revealed that they have indeed found their leads for the highly anticipated reboot. Sorry, folks! Avan Jogia is NOT playing Aladdin!
So, who is?? Well, according to The House Of Mouse, Will Smith has signed on to play the Genie and Naomi Scott will be the film's Princess Jasmine. How exciting!
However, the street rat turned prince character will played by relative newcomer Mena Massoud. Talk about a career changing role!
It looks like director Guy Ritchie has done his part to find the perfect Aladdin cast. Bravo!
