Disney has found its Aladdin and Jasmine.

Disney production president Sean Bailey said Saturday that newcomer Mena Massoud will star as the scrappy Aladdin, and “Power Rangers” Naomi Scott will play Jasmine in the live-action adaptation.

Massoud is from Toronto and has appeared in the television show “Open Heart.” He also has a role in Amazon’s “Jack Ryan.”

He tweeted that he was “honoured and grateful” to be cast in the movie.

Will Smith has already been cast as the Genie.

The film will be directed by Guy Ritchie.
