ANAHEIM: Disney has finally found its Aladdin in newcomer Mena Massoud for their live action reboot.
Photos of the three actors were screened at the Anaheim Convention Center.
"So honoured and grateful for the opportunity to help bring this magical story to life once again. Let's get to work! #Aladdin #Disney," Massoud tweeted.
John August, whose credits include "Big Fish," wrote the new "Aladdin" script.
The original animated movie was a comic take on the Arabic folk tale of a young man granted three wishes by a genie trapped in a lamp.
