Will Smith Joins Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott in Remake of Disney Classic, Aladdin

It has been confirmed that Will Smith would play the role of 'the Genie' in the upcoming remake of the Aladdin movie. Princess Jasmine would be played by British actress, Naomi Scott while the character of Aladdin would be played by Mena Massoud.

People have divergent views about the casting.....especially that of Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine. While some people feel she isn't deserving of the role because she isn't of Arab descent, others feel, Hollywood does not have anymore story and they are simply recycling. Recycling old stories, recycling comics, recycling cartoons.

My own is, if this this girl with a Yoruba name featured here,  could act, she should have been given the role. She loo is the human form of Princess Jasmine.
