If you're an avid Disney fan, then you've probably heard that the entertainment conglomerate is turning Aladdin into a live-action feature film with Middle Eastern actors.
Speaking of which, Disney has just hired Egyptian acting instructor Marwa Gabriel as the official Casting Director for the film.
"I'm proud to announce that I've been hired by Disney to be the official Casting Director in Egypt for their new film Aladdin directed by Guy Ritchie," Gabriel said in a Facebook announcement.
Gabriel assured the public that those interested in applying should be able to sing, as it is one of the basic requirements for the audition.
As the founder of Starz, an acting workshop catering to professional and amateur actors in Egypt, Gabriel was definitely the right choice.

StepFeed reached out to Gabriel for comment, but haven't heard back yet.
What are the requirements? You MUST be able to sing.
Whether you're applying for the Aladdin or Jasmine role, you must be able to sing. Dancing is an added plus, but not an essential skill required at this stage.
You will need to dedicate your time and effort to the fullest.
Of course, Gabriel has a number of Arab talents (including Egyptians) to choose from. Just imagine Egyptian Yasmine Sabry as Princess Jasmine ...
And Saudi Badr al-Zaidan as Aladdin
And Egyptian Amr Waked as Jafar ...
