Aladdin and Jasmine were voiced by white actors in the 1992 original. Aladdin fans and decent human beings can rest easy after an open casting call for Disney’s live-action remake made it clear the film is looking for Middle Eastern leads.

It’s reportedly all thanks to producer Dan Lin, who worked with Ritchie on his revisionist ‘Sherlock Holmes’ movies, and will be collaborating with Disney for ‘Aladdin’.
