Naomi Scott Dishes on A Different Jasmine for 'Aladdin' Live Action: 'She Sees Everything'

Naomi Scott is surrounding by little Jasmines during her visit at Despierta America at Univision Studios on Thursday morning (May 23) in Miami, Fla.

The 26-year-old actress stopped by the program to chat about her new movie, Aladdin.

In a recent interview with The Independent, Naomi opened up about her Jasmine differs from the animated version.

“She’s studied everything,” she says. “She’s a politician. I wanted her to have tact and to be strong, because she’s not just saying she wants to lead for the sake of saying. She’s showcasing skills of leadership.”

She continues that she didn’t want to play this Jasmine “too young and whimsical.”

“There’s a sense that she knows the situation she’s in. She understands why her dad is overprotective, she clocks Jafar. She sees everything.”

Naomi added of the whole feel of the movie: “We’ve created a world that so many different people can pick things out and take it with them. I think, ultimately for young kids, seeing themselves in a character is really powerful. Even if they don’t get the nuanced, small things, they probably do pick it up subconsciously. For me, I think that’s beautiful.”

Aladdin opens in theaters on Friday, May 24th.

Shawn Mendes is truly incredible, and helped a fan overcome her fear of returning to Manchester Arena for his concert earlier this year.

The fan, named Amelia, was one of the lucky ones who escaped the tragic Manchester Attacks that happened during Ariana Grande‘s concert two years ago.

According to the ITV story, Amelia was “severely shaken up and unable to talk for days after what happened”. She had tickets to attend Shawn‘s concert but didn’t quite feel ready to return to the location.

However, she did go with support from a police officer who was also there on the night of the attacks.

Upon arriving, Amelia also got a big surprise – a meet and greet opportunity with Shawn!

“It was really overwhelming and it felt so surreal but I really enjoyed it,” Amelia said of her experience with Shawn. “[He] was so nice to me and I’m a bit overwhelmed…I have new positive memories in there and they will definitely cancel out the negative ones.”
