Disney has officially cast the roles of Aladdin, Jasmine and Genie for its live-action Aladdin remake, Variety reports. After much speculation about who would fill in for the classic characters, Disney announced Saturday that Will Smith will play Genie, Naomi Scott of Power Rangers will play Jasmine, and relative newcomer Mena Massoud joined the cast as Aladdin. Guy Ritchie will direct. The original was an animated, humorous take on a Middle Eastern folk tale, and was the highest grossing film of 1992.
