A thrilling and vibrant live-action adaptation of Disney’s animated classic, 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.

The film stars Will Smith (ALI, MEN IN BLACK) as the larger-than-life Genie; Mena Massoud (TOM CLANCY’S JACK RYAN) as the charming scoundrel Aladdin; Naomi Scott (POWER RANGERS) as Jasmine, the beautiful, selfdetermined princess; Marwan Kenzari (MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS) as Jafar, the powerful sorcerer; Navid Negahban (LEGION) as the Sultan concerned with his daughter’s future; Nasim Pedrad (SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE) as Dalia, Princess Jasmine’s free-spirited best friend and confidante; Billy Magnussen (INTO THE WOODS) as the handsome and arrogant suitor Prince Anders; and Numan Acar (THE GREAT WALL) as Hakim, Jafar’s right-hand man and captain of the palace guards.
