Disney have announced the cast for its upcoming Aladdin remake. 

Unveiled at the D23 Expo this weekend, it was revealed that Will Smith will play the Genie, while Mena Massoud will take on the lead as Aladdin.

Naomi Scott has also been announced to play the part of Jasmine.


Massoud is a relative newcomer to the acting scene, having only appeared in smaller roles in the past. 


All we know so far about the remake is that, like the orginal, this one will be a musical and is reported to be released in 2019.
