A model and singer who dressed up as Princess Jasmine for Halloween has amazed admirers with her physical similarity to the Aladdin character. She said: 'We went to Six Flags Over Georgia for fright fest on Halloween night and it was so much fun.

Princess Jasmine , briefly known as Shirin, is a character on ABC' s Once Upon a Time. She débuts in the fourth episode of the sixth season. She is portrayed by guest star Karen David. Jasmine is based on Badroulbadour from One Thousand and One Nights, and Jasmine from the Disney film Aladdin .

At last, director Guy Ritchie's live-action Aladdin has its title character and its Princess Jasmine, and even the Genie.

Power Rangers star Naomi Scott (she played the Pink Ranger in this spring's Power Rangers film) will play the coveted role of Princess Jasmine, Walt Disney Studios production president Sean Bailey announced at the D23 Expo.

Mena Massoud, who stars in Amazon's Jack Ryan TV series, will step in as the film's title character Aladdin.

Bailey also confirmed that Will Smith will take on the role of Genie, made famous by Robin Williams in the 1992 animated classic.

Aladdin became a trending topic last week following reports of Disney's difficulty in casting the lead roles.

Disney has been trying to cast the leads for its live-action Aladdin film for awhile now. Apparently, Naomi Scott is being considered to play Princess Jasmine . Thankfully, both Disney and director Guy Ritchie have been trying to find two stars who fit the best. They’ve been going around the world to

Blunt said it was a daunting task to step into the famed nanny role made famous by Julie Andrews.

"No one is ever going to out-Julie, Julie Andrews," said Blunt, from the stage. "There’s no one like her. I had to do my own version of her."

But Blunt said she not only sings, but dances alongside Lin-Manuel Miranda who portrays a lamplighter Jack (a portion of his Hamilton star Miranda's cockney accent was displayed in a sizzle reel).

Backstage, Blunt called Marshall "the sweet assassin. He is so kind, but he will make you do it a thousand times until it's perfect. So that's what we did."

Marshall promised of Blunt: "There's no one else that could play this part on the planet, she brings everything to it. She sings, she dances. And she's British."

Marshall showed footage of the music coming to theaters Dec. 25, 2018. The footage included Dick Van Dyke, who starred in the original film as cockney Bert, hoofing a dance on a desk. At 91.

Director Jon Favreau showed the first stunning scenes from his live action The Lion King. The scene featured the live-action version of the iconic scene, when mandrill Rafiki introduces an adorable young Simba on Pride Rock, as Circle of Life plays.  

The scene even included Simba giving an adorable baby lion sneeze, just like in the original.

The Lion King comes to theaters July 19, 2019.

Sean Bailey, Walt Disney president of production, also confirmed a live-action project featuring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, called Jungle Cruise.
