Today, during Disney’s live-action panel it was confirmed that they have finally found their Aladdin and Princess Jasmine. Mena Massoud (Jack Ryan) will co-star as the street urchin Aladdin alongside Naomi Scott (Power Rangers) who has been cast as Princess Jasmine. It was also revealed that Will Smith will indeed play The Genie in the upcoming live-action remake directed by Guy Richie.
We at Omega Underground have also learned that production is now expected to begin in mid-August as opposed the previously announced July date. This was due to the studio having a really hard time nailing down their Aladdin.
Aladdin has no set release date
