Guy Ritchie's live-action remake of 'Aladdin' has landed a 2019 release date.

The new movie hadn't been given a drop date but following a change of directors for 'Star Wars: Episode IX', the live-action reboot of Disney's classic is slated to take its place on May 24, 2019.

'Star Wars: Episode IX' was originally supposed to be released on that day but has been postponed for seven months after Colin Trevorrow left the movie and was replaced by J.J Abrams.

The remake of 'Aladdin' has an impressive cast including Will Smith as The Genie, Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine, and Marwan Kanzari as the villain Jafar.

Why the New Character in Disney's Live-Action Aladdin Is Infuriating Fans

  Why the New Character in Disney's Live-Action Aladdin Is Infuriating Fans Disney's live-action Aladdin reboot based on the 1992 animated film is facing another casting controversy. Although Magnussen has some experience playing a prince — he appears as Rapunzel's royal love interest in 2014's Into the Woods — fans are understandably upset with the studio's decision. For many, the move feels like a way for Disney to shoehorn a white character into a story that's celebrated for predominantly featuring Middle Eastern characters.

The cast also includes 'Homeland' star Numan Acar who is reportedly set to play Hakim - head of the guards and right-hand man to Jafar.

Former 'Saturday Night Live' star Nasim Pedrad has been chosen to play new character Mara, a handmaiden and friend to Jasmine.

'Charlie and The Chocolate Factory' writer John August has penned the script for the musical movie, which is believed to be non-linear in its structure, something that is a hallmark of Ritchie's early work on movies like 'Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels' and 'Snatch'.

The story is based on the Middle Eastern folk tale of Aladdin, who is granted three wishes by a genie who is captive inside a magic lamp.

The 1992 original animated feature - which saw the late, great Robin Williams voice The Genie - won two Oscars, Best Music and Original Song for 'A Whole New World'.

'Aladdin' has also been turned into a hit stage show playing at theatres all over the world.

The movie is just one of the many films that Disney are rebooting, with new versions of 'Dumbo', 'Mulan', 'Peter Pan', 'The Lion King', 'Pocahontas' and 'The Little Mermaid' also in the works.

Patty Jenkins lassos huge pay rise to direct Wonder Woman 2 .
Patty Jenkins is officially on board to direct and co-write DC superhero sequel Wonder Woman 2 for release in December 2019. Her deal with Warner Bros makes her the highest paid female film director in history. The Hollywood Reporter claims she'll earn "somewhere in the $7-9m range" to continue the solo story of Gal Gadot's Diana Prince, after the first film proved to be one of the summer's biggest hits. With a worldwide box office haul of $816m and a domestic gross making it even bigger than last year's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a sequel and the return of Jenkins was inevitable. Jenkins has reportedly begun work on the script with Geoff Johns, co-chairman and co-runner of Warner Bros DC Extended Universe (DCEU) of films that began with 2013's Man of Steel and also includes Suicide Squad. The first film was an origin tale set during the First World War. The sequel is rumoured to take place in the 1980s during the Cold War. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Jenkins revealed that the film will see Wonder Woman travel to the United States. "The story will take place in the U.S., which I think is right," the director said. "She's Wonder Woman. She's got to come to America. It's time." Negotiations between Jenkins and Warner Bros were said to be "challenging", with Jenkins looking for a bumper pay rise after making $1m from the first film.
