Aladdin (May 2019)

Director: Guy Ritchie

Writer: John August and Vanessa Taylor

Cast: Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott, and Will Smith

Years ago, Disney was reportedly working on a Genie spinoff movie, but it appears they might have opted to go a different route with a straight-up Aladdin remake. Sherlock Holmes and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. director Guy Ritchie is set to take the helm, and he’s got good company in Big Fish scribe John August. Disney cast a wide net for newcomers of Middle Eastern descent to fill the lead roles, as producer Dan Lin previously revealed that the film won’t be pulling a Prince of Persia and is going after non-white actors for the leads. Oh, and it’s a musical, so the casting search was difficult but they landed on relative newcomer Mena Massoud for Aladdin and Power Rangers actress Naomi Scott for Jasmine. As for casting Genie, Disney cast Will Smith after Kevin Hart reportedly passed.

    About “Alladin”

    “Aladdin” is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future. Directed by Guy Ritchie, who brings his singular flair for fast-paced, visceral action to the fictitious port city of Agrabah, the film is written by John August and Ritchie based on Disney’s “Aladdin.”

    “Aladdin” stars Will Smith as the larger-than-life Genie; Mena Massoud as the charming scoundrel Aladdin; Naomi Scott as Jasmine, the beautiful, self-determined princess; Marwan Kenzari as Jafar, the powerful sorcerer; Navid Negahban as the Sultan concerned with his daughter’s future; Nasim Pedrad as Dalia, Princess Jasmine’s free-spirited best friend and confidante; Billy Magnussen as the handsome and arrogant suitor Prince Anders; and Numan Acar as Hakim, Jafar’s right-hand man and captain of the palace guards.

    The film is produced by Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich with Marc Platt and Kevin De La Noy serving as executive producers. Alan Menken provides the score, which includes new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and lyricists Howard Ashman and Tim Rice and two new songs written by Menken and songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

    The film, which was shot on practical stages in London and on location amidst the stunning desert vistas of Jordan, has a talented creative team helping to bring Agrabah to life, including: director of photography Alan Stewart, production designer Gemma Jackson and costume designer Michael Wilkinson.
