Disney Can't Find A Live Action Aladdin — Leaving Fans Of THIS Actor Scratching Their Heads!

no title

A rising star ain't never had a friend like Twitter!

Disney may not know the name Avan Jogia, but everyone who has seen the hottie sing, dance, and steal scenes from stars like Victoria Justice and Ben Kingsley does.

So when reports came out that Guy Ritchie was having a hard time finding a lead for his live action version of Aladdin, fans of the 25-year-old had to point out the glaring apparent omission from the casting net.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Disney has opted not to go with early frontrunners Dev Patel and Riz Ahmed because they're too well-known, and they'd rather cast a fresh face, specifically one of Middle Eastern descent.

They've considered and reportedly tested Achraf Koutet, Mena Massoud, and George Kosturos — but quite a few fans seem to know who they want.

Ch-ch-check out some of their reactions (below)!
