Naomi Scott who stars as the beautiful princess of Agrabah in the new live-action version revealed her character wants to make a powerful statement this time around.

The British actress chatted with VIX about her process in filming the new "Aladdin" movie.

"She is more ambitious, a leader and she has amazing tweaks for this movie," Scott said.

Like so many other young girls, Scott fell in love at an early age with Disney’s animated heroines so she knew the pressure was on in playing one of the most iconic princess, but on the other hand she said the evolution was a "natural progression."

At the end, the actress hopes people can take away the real messages behind the story: "Self discovery, speaking out about injustice and honest friendships."
