'Aladdin': Disney Struggles to Find Stars for Its Live-Action Movie
Guy Ritchie and the studio are trying to wrap up a months-long search that has included names (Riz Ahmed, Dev Patel) and complete unknowns from around the world to play the street hustler turned prince.

Around 2,000 actors and actresses have read for the lead roles of Jasmine and Aladdin.

While the studio had interest in Dev Patel, 27, and Riz Ahmed, 34, the male lead will likely be a newcomer. Sources say the studio is eyeing Power Rangers actress Naomi Scott, 24, or Indian actress Tara Sutaria, 21, to play Jasmine, but can’t lock the deal until the male lead has been selected since chemistry is so important to the story. (Will Smith is signed on to play the Genie, and sources say the studio is after known names for the role of the villain Jafar).

I didn't know I was older than Dev Patel. I think him or Riz would be great, but maybe they are too hold for the role?

I haven't seen Power Rangers so I can't say anything about Naomi Scott and I'm not familiar with Tara Sutaria either, but she looks really young.

I think Jake would make a terrific Aladdin and Princess Jasmine should be played by... Matt Damon. His ponytail was fantastic in The Great Wall.

Watching the cartoon today and made me look up the love action movie. I thought for some reason Mr Robot was playing Aladdin, but it isn't.

Also, Will Smith is the Genie?! Oh...that was said in the original post.

Marketing for movies is confusing. I would consider this a teaser, not a trailer.
