What’s going on everyone? Happy Saturday, we have just received some news regarding the live-action Aladdin film that’s being directed by Guy Ritchie. Coming from D23 Expo we’ve learned who will be playing Aladdin, Jasmine, and last but not least Genie.
Aladdin will be played by Mena Massoud.
Jasmine will be played by Naomi Scott.
Finally, Genie will be played by Will Smith.
I do not know how I feel about this cast just yet. I love anything, Will Smith does for the most part. After the Power Rangers film, I have been waiting to see what Naomi Scott does next. So her being a Disney Princess has surprised me but at the same time I am happy for her. I have not seen Mena Masoud in anything. So I am interested in this cast and I want to see what they will do. I know some fans are already upset by this casting news and I understand. They wanted actors who were of that nationality playing Aladdin and Jasmine.
Anyway, I am looking forward to seeing more of this cast as announcements are made. I will be covering more of D23 Expo, so stay tuned. Until then, I am XBen3000 and I am out!
