A Whole New World

Disney have found enormous success in recent years adapting their classic animated films into live-action features. Cinderella, The Jungle Book, Pete’s Dragon, Maleficent and the upcoming Beauty and the Beast have all been met with great anticipation and that trend looks to continue with Aladdin. 

Thanks to a recent update on casting website, we know now that the adaptation will begin filming in the UK this July.
