Shining, shimmering, splendid.

You know, Aladdin? The tale of a street rat with a heart of gold whose wit, charm, and three wishes win over the princess every '90s girl modeled herself after?


Mena Massoud is Aladdin, our "diamond in the rough," if you will.

Naomi Scott is Princess Jasmine, and she is NOT a prize to be won.

Will Smith is the Genie, and we've most certainly never had a friend like him.

And Marwan Kenzari is Jafar, the conniving Royal Vizier hell-bent on de-throning the somewhat oblivious Sultan.

"Jafar, Jafar, he's our man. If he can't do it...GREAT."


And today we finally got to see the four of them together when Will Smith shared the first on-set photo of the group and OMG precious baby angels.


Walt Disney Studios also released a statement noting:

Casting for “Aladdin,” the live-action adaptation of the studio’s animated classic, is complete and production is currently underway at Longcross Studios outside London.
