Meet Mena Massoud, the actor playing Aladdin in the live-action remake

2017-07-18
Mena Massoud is your new Aladdin. The Egyptian-Canadian actor won the title role in the upcoming live-action remake of the Disney classic, to be directed by Guy Ritchie. Other actors Riz Ahmed and Dev Patel were considered before Massoud earned the role. Other confirmed roles are Naomi Scott as Jasmine and Will Smith as the Genie. Judging by the look of Mena's Instagram pictures, we're certainly looking forward to seeing him portray everyone's favourite street rat/pretend prince when the film hits screens.

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. The stars that shined as bright as her two illuminating eyes. Find your inspiration. Use it to drive your passion. Go out and get it. #passion #drive #focus #poetry
