Power Rangers actress Naomi Scott is set to play Princess Jasmine, with Marwan Kenzari (Murder on the Orient Express) playing the villain Jafar, and Will Smith playing the Genie, originally voiced by actor/comedian Robin Williams.Aladdin

Magnussen will take on the new role created for the movie musical, with all other character details remaining buried in the Cave of Wonders.
