‘Aladdin’: The Disney Film Passes $500 Million at the Worldwide BO!!!

Disney’s Dumbo may not have set the box office alight, but the House of Mouse is enjoying more success with its second live-action remake of the year, with the Guy Ritchie-directed Aladdin taking its box office haul beyond the $500 million mark this week.

The film – which stars Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott and Will Smith as Aladdin, Jasmine and the Genie – had grossed $203.1 million in North America by close of play on Wednesday, making it the third biggest release of the year so far after Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame and Captain Marvel.

Aladdin is the sixth of Disney’s animated remakes to pass the half billion dollar mark, and should go on to overtake 2015’s Cinderella ($543.5 million) to claim fifth place. That position will be short-lived however, with next month’s The Lion King on course for a whopping $230 million opening weekend in North America alone.

Aladdin is directed by Guy Ritchie (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword) and features a cast that includes Mena Massoud (Aladdin), Naomi Scott (Princess Jasmine), Will Smith (Genie), Marwan Kenzari (Jafar), Navid Negahban (The Sultan), Nasim Pedrad (Dalia), Billy Magnussen (Prince Anders), Numan Acar (Hakim), Alan Tudyk (Iago) and Frank Welker (Abu).
