Disney has officially unveiled its central cast for Guy Ritchie's live-action adaptation of the classic animated film Aladdin. Smith needs no introduction and has been rumored for the role made famous by the late Robin Williams for some time now.

Guy Ritchie, who has always been rumoured as the director was also confirmed as the man behind the camera.

At the Live panel announcing the upcoming roster of Disney movies and remakes, the full main Aladdin trio was revealed.

Both Riz Ahmed and Dev Patel are understood to have been considered but Disney was more keen on casting an unknown actor.

Naomi Scott is portraying Princess Jasmine in Disney's "Aladdin".

Before we get to see Aladdin in cinemas, Mena Massoud will star in Tom Clancy Amazon TV series Jack Ryan.

The Aladdin movie was originally slated to begin production in July, but the start of filming has been moved to August due to casting delays.

Will Smith has already been cast as the Genie. And his name is Mena Massoud.

The film was reportedly struggling to find a suitable actor to play Aladdin.

The English star was born in Hounslow and has also appeared in The Martian and The 33, as well as starring as The Pink Ranger in 2017s superhero film Power Rangers. Disney is now on the hunt for villain Jafar, who will likely be played by a name actor.
