'Aladdin' cast for live-action adaptation revealed”

Disney announced the cast for its upcoming live-action remake of "Aladdin" Saturday on Twitter.

Disney previously said it was having trouble casting an actor for its titular lead, prompting people to offer their own suggestions online.

How does the new Genie, Will Smith (R-pictured at the Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France on May 28, 2017) compare to the late Robin Williams (L-pictured performing at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on May 25, 2008)? And his name is Mena Massoud.

With two relative newcomers set to play the film's leading roles, the studio is reportedly interested in snagging a "known quantity" for the role of the villain Jafar. The actor has been confirmed to play the role of Genie in Disney's live-action Aladdin film, and fans are totally freaking out about his new role.

Shooting on the film will begin relatively soon (August) in London, so more casting announcements are bound to be made within the next few weeks.
