A who’s who of the cast

Most of the cast members aren’t newcomers to acting. Mena Massoud and Nicole Scott are credited with “Jack Ryan” and “Power Rangers,” respectively.

Will Smith alone has quite the acting resume with hits like “Men in Black” and “The Pursuit of Happyness.” Marwan Kenzari has been seen in “Murder on the Orient Express.”

Magnussen, on the other hand, appeared in Disney's "Out of the Wood." The screenplay for the film follows a mix of the animated film with the story from “One Thousand and One Nights.”

The animated film featured songs. The Disney-backed film will enlist Alan Menken of “Little Mermaid” and “Beauty and the Beast” fame for the songs; aiding him in songwriting are Howard Ashman as well as Tim Rice, who is the man behind songs featured in “The Lion King.”

Aside from featuring the original songs from the animated feature, viewers will also hear two new songs composed by Menken, Benj Pasek, and Justin Paul.
