Here's Who Will Play Aladdin In Disney's Live Action Remake

Breaking news from the D23 Expo: Disney has finally cast its live-action Aladdin-and announced who'll be playing Jasmine, too.

The House of Mouse may have been having problems finding its titular Aladdin for the remake of the 1992 animated classic prior to D23 this weekend, but the same can not be said for Jasmine and Genie. Most recently Scott was seen playing the Pink Power Ranger in 2017's Power Rangers adaptation while Massoud can be seen in the Jack Ryan television series.

Will Smith had previously been confirmed to play the Genie.

Following an extensive search that saw Ritchie and Disney screen test over 2,000 actors, the studio has landed on Mena Massoud to star in the titular role. It will be directed by Guy Ritchie.

The institutional investor owned 9,180 shares of the retailer's stock after buying an additional 1,972 shares during the period. Willingdon Wealth Management increased its stake in shares of Costco Wholesale Corporation by 2.3% in the first quarter.

Dan Lin will produce the project under his Lin Pictures banner and Jonathan Eirich will executive produce.

The original Aladdin was released in 1992 and it told the story of a the young thief who is granted three wishes by a genie trapped in a lamp - although Jafar, who's evil, wants to become powerful instead.

It really will be a Whole New World for the rising star. He is repped by CAA and Overbrook Entertainment.
