Disney has officially found its Aladdin, Jasmine and Genie for the upcoming ‘Aladdin’ live-action remake.  According to Disney, the movie will hit theatres May 24, 2019 and along with the movie, rumour has it that Selena Gomez and Zayn (One Direction) are planning on a collaboration for the film’s soundtrack.



It all started after a tweet was published from one of Selena Gomez’s fan accounts and was claiming that the two pop stars will be teaming up for a duet.  As of right now, these are just rumours but how cool would a collab sound from Selena and Zayn?



Once word got out about the rumour, Twitter fans went crazy and although the majority are wishing for this to be true, others are not buying it.  Now If it is true, sources say that they will be performing the films lead song, ‘A Whole New World’.


See what Twitter is saying …

P.S. I think that these are the major characters because there was fuss surrounding each casting announcement. Minor actors have also been casted, but I'll wait until there's more news to do a proper post on them. #disney #disneysaladdin #menamassoud #princeali #nasimpedrad #marwankenzari #naomiscott #willsmith #genie #princessjasmine #arabiannights #singalong #lyrics #broadway #musical #awholenewworld #movie #theatre #performingarts #artist #acting #actor #music
