Naomi Scott dons Princess Jasmine’s red outfit in this new image from Guy Richie and Disney’s live-action remake of Aladdin.
If you’re an audience member who has grown to love the new slew of live-action Disney remakes of animated classics, then this year is going to be very exciting. Classic Disney films such as Dumbo and The Lion King are getting the live-action treatment this year, as well as the 1992 film Aladdin. Naomi Scott, star of the 2017 Power Ranger film reboot, is set to play Princess Jasmine in the film and now fans can finally get a glimpse of the actor donning Jasmine’s iconic red outfit in an image from the film.
A fan on Instagram compared Naomi Scott’s live-action Princess Jasmine to her animated counterpart, both donning the red outfit, and the results will definitely hype fans for the retelling of the classic tale. Check out the image of Naomi Scott and the original Princess Jasmine in the post below.
Aladdin will release on the heels of a marathon of achievements for Disney in the area of live-action remakes. In 2010, Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland became a worldwide hit and inspired a new set of live-action remakes of Disney classics. Since then, remakes such as Cinderella, The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast have taken the worldwide box office by storm and proved that this trend doesn’t seem to be ending any time soon. Even the Angelina Jolie-starring film Maleficent, which is more of a retelling than a remake of Sleeping Beauty, was a huge hit at the box office and spawned a sequel that will hit theaters in the near future.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding the film as soon as more information becomes available. Are you excited to see Naomi Scott play Princess Jasmine? Which of the upcoming Disney live-action remakes are you most excited about? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

Here’s What We Learned On The Set Of DC’s ‘Shazam!’ Movie
Shazam! I’m writing that because I’ve had to use all the powers of an ancient Egyptian wizard to contain my excitement and prevent me from telling you the things I’m about to tell you at this moment. Back in April, I got the invitation of a lifetime. Warner Brothers, New Line and DC began sending out invitations to the set of the Shazam! movie.
I was lucky enough to be one of the few journalists invited to the set of Shazam! and I have to say I saw some pretty fantastical things. This was Heroic Hollywood’s second set visit and my first time ever visiting a movie set, so as a movie fan, I was excited, and as a DC Comics fan, I was screaming internally.
This was my first time visiting Toronto and it came with such a cool stipulation. The other journalists and I arrived in Toronto on Wednesday, April 17, 2018. We got to enjoy the beautiful city on our first night there and then on Thursday morning, we were up bright and early to visit the set of the film.
It was cold day in Toronto and me and a bunch of other journalists made our way to Pinewood Studios to visit the set of the Shazam! movie. We were directed into this office where they showed us this terrific sizzle reel and told us almost everything about the movie. Now that the embargo has officially lifted, I can finally tell you almost everything we learned on set of Shazam.
There’s a bunch of cool things about Shazam! that you guys have yet to discover and I’m excited to dissect it for you in the following slideshow. Hit next as I reveal almost everything about my Heroic mission to the Shazam! set.
