Disney’s live-action remakes of its classic animated fairy tale movies have proven to be box office magic so far and the studio has plenty more remakes in the works, including Aladdin, which has now started production.
The movie stars Will Smith as the Genie, together with Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine, and Marwan Kenzari as Jafar.
Will Smith has posted the first photo from the set on his Facebook page and it shows the four stars together.
He captioned it:
We just started shooting Aladdin and I wanted to intro you guys to our new family… Mena Massoud/Aladdin, Naomi Scott/Princess Jasmine, Marwan Kenzari/Jafar, and I’m over here getting my Genie on. Here we go! — with Naomi Scott and Mena Massoud.
