It really is Christmas in July, because not only are we getting another season of Game of Thrones this week… but we also just found out who will be playing the beloved characters of Aladdin and Jasmine in the live-action Disney remake of Aladdin!
And let’s just say this now, they are PERFECT!
Everyone had believed that Disney had struggled to find its lead characters, but this casting seems so perfect that we can’t believe we had any doubts!
Disney made the cast announcement at the D23 expo on Saturday.
Meet your new Aladdin, played by Mena Massoud, and Jasmine, played by Naomi Scott!
You might remember Naomi’s face from the recent Power Rangers reboot.
Mena is more of a newcomer and is set to star in an upcoming Jack Ryan TV series.
Nonetheless, these two are the perfect match.
Considering Will Smith is also onboard the film as Genie, this is looking to be one of the most exciting remakes ever!
We cannot wait!
