Disney could not cast their new live-action movie “Aladdin” and Huffingtonpost came up with alternative names for the roles Aladdin and Princess Jasmine. It is so surprising to see that Tuba Buyukustun is one of the alternatives for the Princess Jasmine role. We believe that she can successfully portray the strong-willed Princess Jasmine role with her black hair.
Disney will make its live-action remake of the animated 1992 classic Aladdin. The movie would be directed by Guy Ritchie.
Disney is attempting to cast the classic tale with authentic actors, but could not manage to cast yet despite auditions worldwide. It is known that Disney could not choose its leading actor and actress among 2,000 candidates. Many twitter users started to comment on this and came up with plenty of suggestions.
As for Aladdin? Avan Jogia, a Canadian actor who starred in the Tut miniseries and the Nickelodeon sitcom Victorious, is a popular choice on Internet. Other users floated the comedians Kumail Nanjiani and Aziz Ansari; former One Direction singer Zayn Malik; and 13 Reasons Why actor Christian Navarro.
As for Princess Jasmine? Priyanka Chopra and Jade Thirlwall are very popular on Internet.
The criteria of Disney include an age range of 18 to 25 and the ability to sing with dancing skills “a plus,” while emphasizing that the characters are of Middle Eastern descent.
Recently, HuffPost has listed the names of actors and actresses that could play the characters that are traditionally ethnic.
