Disney’s D23 expo commenced this past weekend, and revealed a whole bunch of news concerning upcoming films/projects from the House of Mouse. One of those is the live-action remake of Aladdin. Although Disney “claimed” that they had trouble casting, the internet responded with, “suuuuure”. Lo and behold, the casting didn’t become so difficult all of a sudden, and it is as follows:
Mena Massoud as Aladdin/Prince Ali
Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine
Will Smith as Genie
The live-action remake of Aladdin is expected to hit theaters on March 29th, 2019, and you can read more about D23 news at Deadline.
