Disney’s remake of Aladdin is featured in the newest issue of Empire magazine. One imaged featured in the spread is an image of Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott) and Aladdin (Mena Massoud) meeting in the marketplace in Agrabah, recreating an iconic scene from the animated film.
Per producer, Dan Lin, we’ll be seeing a more active role for Princess Jasmine. “In the original movie, it felt like [Jasmine] didn’t have as compelling a goal. Her main aim was to find the love of her life. In this case, the romance is important, but she also wants to see more of Agrabah, and take more of a leadership role in ruling the city. Her character has a much stronger journey.”
