Disney Announces Live Action Casting for ‘Dumbo’ and ‘Aladdin’


Today at the D23 Expo Disney announced casting for the live action adaptations of Dumbo and Aladdin.

For Tim Burton’s Dumbo they announced Danny Devito, Eva Green, Michael Keaton, and Colin Farrel as actors in the upcoming movie to be released March 29, 2019.   Some of those actors have been tied to the project for awhile.  Recently they announced that Michael Keaton would be joining the cast.

For Aladdin they announced Mena Massoud (Aladdin), Naomi Scott (Jasmine) and Will Smith (Genie)   Will Smith as Genie is an interesting choice, but I think he could pull it off.
