Disney's 'Aladdin' casts Will Smith, Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott in its live-action remake


Enjoy the live-action Beauty and the Beast? Well, Disney has a few more on its plate, and it disclosed a few highly-anticipated details of its live adaptations of "Aladdin" and "Dumbo" at its D23 expo in Anaheim, Calif., on Saturday.

Aladdin will star Will Smith as the Genie, Mena Massoud as Aladdin, and Naomi Scott of "Power Rangers" as Jasmine.

Some fans, though, weren't happy with the casting.

Unlike Aladdin, Dumbo is already in production with Tim Burton serving as director. Stars include Colin Farrell, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, and Michael Keaton.

Fans on Twitter took note of the "Batman Returns" reunion with Burton, DeVito and Keaton.

Dumbo will hit theaters March 29, 2019
