Days after casting troubles were reported, Disney has announced the principal cast of their upcoming live-action remake of Aladdin, which will star Jack Ryan's Mena Massoud and Power Rangers' Naomi Scott!

What casting drama?

Just moments ago, at their D23 Live-Action Films presentation, Disney officially announced the cast of Guy Ritchie's Aladdin. Mena Massoud will play the highly-coveted title role while Naomi Scott will portray his lady love Jasmine. 2x Academy Award-nominee Will Smith has also been confirmed as the Genie, taking over the role from the late Robin Williams, who voiced the character in the original 1992 classic.

Massoud is set to star alongside John Krasinski in Amazon's upcoming Jack Ryan series while Naomi Scott is coming in hot after starring as Kimberly Hart, the Pink Ranger, in Lionsgate's recent Power Rangers reboot.

Production is expected to begin soon with Ritchie in the director's chair with a script from John August (Big Fish).
