The cast members of the Disney's Aladdin Live have finally come together, and it proves that this remake is going to show us a whole new world.
Will Smith, who will play the Genie, posted the photo of the main cast members, and people are super excited. It's the first glimpse we've had of the whole cast together, and the release of the pic has been much-anticipated.
"We just started shooting Aladdin and I wanted to intro you guys to our new family… Mena Massoud/Aladdin, Naomi Scott/Princess Jasmine, Marwan Kenzari/Jafar, and I'm over here gettin my Genie on. Here we go!," Smith wrote in a post on Facebook.
For a good portion of the summer, people speculated who might be cast as Aladdin and Jasmine. Casting calls were held in the UK and the UAE, and casting was delayed because directors had difficulty filling the roles.
In late July, it was finally revealed that Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott would play the two lead roles. It was also announced that in addition to Smith as the Genie, Marwan Kenzari would take on the role of Jafar.
With this photo, its clear that filming has started, but we're still waiting on a release date!
