Written By: Nick Poulimenakos

What a day it has been for the House of Mouse. After a very long and hard search, Disney has found the actor and actress for the iconic roles of Aladdin and Princess Jasmine.

Naomi Scott, who is known for her role in the 2016 superhero film Power Rangers, has signed on to play Jasmine. The role of Prince Ali will be going to newcomer Mena Massoud. Finally, the role of the Genie will be played by Will Smith, who takes over the role from Robin Williams.

Smith has been long rumored for the role of the Genie, as was Naomi Scott for Jasmine. The studio was looking to cast Aladdin first before finding their Jasmine. The film will be directed by Guy Ritchie.

Aladdin currently has no release date but stay tuned to Talkies network for all the latest updates!
