As Disney confirm who will take the title role in their upcoming live-action Aladdin, all eyes are now on Mena Massoud.
The talented (and hunky) actor – who is currently in Amazon series Jack Ryan – is set to take flight as the iconic and loveable character alongside English actress Naomi Scott as Jasmine. She most recently kicked ass as the Pink Ranger in the Power Rangers film.
Will Smith will join them in the live-action movie as the Genie.
The casting news came as part of Disney D23 Expo in southern California.
Although we’re yet to hear how he gets on belting out A Whole New World, Mena is certainly impressing us with his charming Aladdin looks – as these Instagram photos confirm…
Is it wrong for us to fancy Aladdin? Nope.
'Spring has past, summer has gone and winter is here. And the song that I meant to sing remains unsung. I have spent my days stringing and unstringing my instrument.' A saying no one should carry the burden of. Play your instrument every single day – you'll only get better. New shots by the incredible @denisegrant1
It was in that moment, as he looked into her eyes, that he saw a soul so beautfully captivating that he could not but help remember the vastness of the galaxies above.

My 4 month transformation post. Not as lean as I'd like to be, but gaining muscle mass & cutting fat at the same time ain't easy. 2016 has been an incredible year so far. I've already experienced the biggest changes in my life over the course of the past 10 months. It's almost as if, life has taken me by the hand and led me to a plethora of places that I never really thought I would go. I've realized, more than ever, that there are a lot of things in life you cannot control. More things than you think. In fact, there are very few things in life, far and few between, that are fully and absolutely in your control. But it's those things that you can and do control that end up having the greatest reward on your life. Never set goals and stop when you achieve those goals. That is the biggest disservice you can do to yourself. Because goals – goals are just the beginning of a legacy. Live. Dream. Love. Grow. #gym #transformation #vegan #gohard #goals
