More from Disney’s Aladdin Live-Action Remake.

Alright everyone, now that we officially know that Will Smith will be playing the Genie in Disney’s Aladdin live-action remake, this film can’t come soon enough.  Honestly, I felt as if Aladdin was such a classic I was on the fence if I really wanted to see this film.  However, with such amazing actors playing some of my favorite characters I am becoming more and more excited!

The cast of Disney’s Aladdin Live-action remake recently gave us a quick behind-the-scenes look on set.  I must say, I am extremely happy that the cast is filming on location rather than inputting a lot of magic “behind-the-scenes”.  Look how amazing everything looks already!

It was recently released that Will Smith will be playing Genie, but let’s take a look at some of the other characters in the film.  Playing “Jasmine” is actress Naomi Scott.  Scott should seem familiar to Disney fans as she played a lead role in the hit Disney Channel movie “Lemonade Mouth”.

Playing “Aladdin” is actor Mena Massoud.  Massoud has played in a few minor tv shows and major films before landing the coveted role.

The last major actor, who will play “Jafar”, for Disney’s Aladdin Live-Action remake is Marwan Kenzari.  Kenzari an Internationl break out talent of 2016 and is also known for his part alongside, Tom Cruise, in The Mummy.

So, what about you? Are you excited for another live-action remake?  I feel like the Aladdin re-make does look more authentic as a live-action than some of the others.  I guess we will find out come May 2019!
