Who Is Forthcoming Disney Star Mena Massoud?

Who Is Forthcoming Disney Star Mena Massoud?”

After taking the long and winding road, Walt Disney Studios has finally found the lead actor for the live-action Aladdin remake.

Disney announced the cast of the upcoming live-action Aladdin remake during the D23 Expo in Anaheim on Saturday.

This comes after Disney had announced facing difficulty in finding a person to take on the role of Aladdin, asking people to offer their online suggestions for the ideal candidate.

Consequently, people are not happy with the final casting because, dhoka, and mostly because Naomi Scott is a white woman playing the role of Jasmine. She joins Aladdin as a Disney veteran, having starred as Mohini "Mo" Banarjee in the Disney Channel original movie Lemonade Mouth and as Megan in Disney series Life Bites. They will be played by Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott.

The main role of Aladdin has been given to Hollywood newcomer Mena Massoud, while Naomi Scott will take on the role of Jasmine. "Finding a male lead in his 20s who can act and sing has proven hard", the Hollywood Reporter wrote last week, "especially since the studio wants someone of Middle-Eastern or Indian descent".

Massoud is an Egyptian-Canadian actor with several television credits to his name. Scott, who will portray Princess Jasmine, is born to a British actor and an Indian mother.

John August (Big Fish) wrote the script for the new Aladdin film, which is due for release from Disney sometime in 2019. Dev Patel, Riz Ahmed were in the running but ultimately the role has been given to a relatively newbie in the industry, Mena Massoud.
