During the early 90s, every child’s favorite childhood Disney cartoon was Aladdin and when Disney decided to make a movie on it and we all got excited to know who will play the lead character, Aladdin. Later, the news started to speculate that Disney was having trouble finding Aladdin, so the Twitterati took a charge to help Disney and started tagging their favorite artist to play the leads for Aladdin.

After a crazy Twitter hunt for Aladdin by fans all over the world, Disney finally announced their lead roles and this is not something most people have guessed of.

The lead role is Canadian actor, Mena Massoud, who has starred in many American TV Series, namely Jack Ryan, Open Heart, Saving Hope. He has recently been cast in the film “Strange But True”.

Solid way to start this beautiful month of June. #freshstart #june #hustle
