Aladdin hits theatres on May 24, 2019. It stars Will Smith as the Genie, Mena Massoud (Jack Ryan) as Aladdin, Naomi Scott (Power Rangers) as Princess Jasmine, and Marwan Kenzari (The Mummy) as Jafar. It’s being directed by Sherlock Holmes director Guy Ritchie.
The new Aladdin is one of several upcoming live-action adaptations of Disney’s library of animated classics. Some of the other upcoming films include The Lion King starring Donald Glover as Simba and a Lilo & Stitch film.
2017’s Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson was a monumental success, bringing in more than $1.2 billion at the box office.
