Honestly, as long as there are the main characters (Aladdin, Jasmine, Genie, and Jafar) and Carpet, I don't care who they take out or add. I really want this to be a new telling of the story.

So I'm a month late to find this, but Alan Menken announced that he will be co-writing new songs with the lyricists of LA LA LAND

Also, Jafar will have a right-hand man to be played by Numan Acar. His name is Hakim, and he is also the head of the guards. SO I guess Iago + Rasoul = Hakim?

And this page says that the storytelling will be non-linear and not traditional:

Noooo!!!! I wanted Iago to be his own character... Say it isn't so!!
Ahh, I'm honestly kinda pissed. Iago was a decently popular character at one point!
I just wanted to see someone else handle this hot tempered character. It won't be the same if his personality's not the same.
Erg, I'm sorry. I'm just really passionate about one of my favorite fictional characters of all time, hehe.

Well there's nothing that says Iago is out of the picture.

I'd say the movie is innocent until proven guilty Razz

Updated to add Sultan! Seeing as how filming is underway now, that seems to be the official core cast, so no Iago, Abu, or Rajah to be found. They might make cheeky references or cameos in the film, but they all seem to be replaced with human equivalents save for Abu since it appears Aladdin will be totally alone in this one. Other casting can be found here.

Also announced today was Billy Magnussen as Prince Anders, which is causing controversy because no one is sure of why Disney needed to add a pseudo-European white prince in to the mix when the original movie had zero. If he's taking the place of Prince Achmed, that's fine I guess, but I'm not really here for him having a bigger role than that.

On a lighter note:
