Production on Disney's live-action Aladdin is officially done with filming wrapped. The Mouse House is running through their extensive library of animated classics and retelling them in a new way. While they've already tackled a number of beloved films, next year should be their biggest yet. Jon Favreau's The Lion King is highly anticipated, but it will actually be Guy Ritchie's Aladdin that hits theaters first. The film was subject to a prolonged casting process to find the perfect people to lead, and eventually brought Mena Massoud and Power Rangers' Naomi Scott onboard.

The biggest name in the cast is Will Smith, who has the difficult task of following up Robin Williams' voice of Genie. The cast filled out nicely around the three stars, but production hasn't been without controversy. Shortcuts in casting led to them "browning up" background actors, a move that immediately stirred up debate. But, that did not stop production from continuing on, and they've now wrapped.

Aladdin's two young stars both confirmed on social media that they are done filming the live-action remake. Massoud shared a photo of him with a giant clapperboard and plenty of green screen behind him. Scott meanwhile shared her final day with two tweets, thanking the crew for a great shoot before closing out her time on set.
