Will Smith CONFIRMED as the Genie with THIS Brit star as Jasmine

Aladdin

Aladdin has yet to secure a release date for itself, but it joins an increasingly ambitious slate of live-action remakes and other projects from Disney; the company's other live-action plans now include Mulan, The Lion King, and Tim Burton's Dumbo.

The reveal was made on stage at D23, Disney's massive annual fan event, where the studio revealed more info on their upcoming version of the animated classic.

Relative newcomer Mena Massoud and Power Rangers star Naomi Scott have booked a flight on a magic carpet ride. That's not least that they need to find someone to play the villain, Jafar, as well as various other roles. The duo join the only other talent cast for the Disney musical, Will Smith, who will be playing the Genie.

Sherlock Holmes filmmaker Guy Ritchie is directing the film, which Bailey said draws influences for its city of Agrabah will draw from global influences, including the Middle East, India, and even China. Born in Egypt and raised in Ontario, Massoud is a relatively unknown actor with a thin resume.

Massoud is relatively new to the film industry, having no major movie roles to his name, but he will appear on a number of episodes of the John Krasinski-led Amazon series Jack Ryan later this year.
