It looks like Disney has officially recruited a Power Ranger to play an iconic movie princess.
Power Rangers actress Naomi Scott has been recruited to play Princess Jasmine in Disney’s live-action Aladdin. Disney announced the casting at D23 and is co-starring with Mena Massoud as Aladdin and Will Smith as the Genie, previously played by comedy legend Robin Williams.
Scott had been previously rumored to be up for the role alongside actress Tara Sutaria, but the studio was waiting to officially cast Aladdin before it decided on Jasmine. Will Smith has long been rumored for the role of Genie.
