There has been a lot of speculation over the casting of Aladdin after a report surfaced that director Guy Ritchie has been having trouble finding his leads. This led to the internet giving suggestions with the clear favorite to play Aladdin being Avan Jogia. He took to Twitter last night to shoot down the reports that he is a frontrunner for the role.

Naomi is best known for starring in the recent Power Rangers reboot as Kimberly, the Pink Ranger. Mena is set to star in the upcoming Jack Ryan television series.

The casting was announced at Disney’s D23 Expo on Saturday (July 15) along with lots of other cool Disney news.
