menamassoudIt’s always bitter-sweet wrapping a project: so much hard work from everyone involved without necessarily knowing the result. It’s a weird business. We’re supposed to be creative beings but we work in a business that is so results-oriented. Social media numbers, box office projections, viewership, analysis, analysis, analysis. Those two things don’t even seem to make sense together - art and math - but that’s how it is. And a little scary because as an artist you’re almost always unsure of what happens next. So all I can say is, I loved the artists I got to work with on this project and I know we all put our hearts and souls into it. We can’t control anything else. What comes next is unknown but you may be Reprisal-ed 😉
menamassoudCongratulations to @nisrin_erradi on her @edafoundation International Artist in Motion Award for her performance in ADAM. She and the other women behind this incredible North African story were sensational. Just the beginning! #GFF19
menamassoudAs an Egyptian-Canadian growing up I never really saw people who looked like me on the big screen. Everywhere I turned I was being told that what I loved was just a hobby, just a dream, nothing I could actually achieve. Today more than ever I understand the importance of representation and the impact of telling stories that portray the truth. And the truth is diversity. We all deserve to be given an equal chance. We all deserve to see ourselves on screen. The @edafoundation is here to support & aid ALL diverse artists in achieving their dreams. We may not be able to control how we are treated by those around us but we can certainly stand together & support those who face the same challenges as us. United we are stronger. United we can strive for equality. For more information or to donate now, link in bio!
menamassoudOkay. This made my day. My week. My year. If only we could all go back to a time where we didn’t even understand differences. We only knew and felt what made us the same. Love. Joy. Freedom. Credit: @2_puggles_anda_baby
menamassoudWay back when we were filming #Aladdin, Nay and I took some time out to talk about our experiences. It was such a massive movie for both of us, sometimes we just had to take a step back to soak it all in. Stay tuned for more of these! @naomigscott
menamassoudLet’s get ready to... weekly update! Still shooting #Reprisal — and got to show some folks the first episode recently which was very cool. Hugely looking forward to D23 later this month and showing you guys some of the cool extras on the #Aladdin Blu-ray!
Drop a comment below telling me what movies you’re seeing and loving in theaters right now!
menamassoudLots of people laughed when I told them #Aladdin would hit a Billy 6 months ago. But those who mock you are often too busy laughing to see your light. Just manifest what you want & work your ass off. Can’t control anything but your own mind, body & spirit.
We’re officially the most ethnically diverse cast to ever lead a film to the billion dollar club. Pretty. Freakin. Cool. 🙏🏽 everyone who went on this magic carpet ride with us. #AladdinFansUnite #OurStoriesMatter @disneyaladdin
menamassoudAlright time for some deep BTS. And trust me. This one was deep. About 18 feet deep. Fun fact: my mom was on set for about 5 minutes until she saw what I was doing that day and had to leave she was so scared 😂 one of the coolest sequences I’ve ever filmed for sure. Catch #Aladdin on Digital 8/27 and Blu-ray 9/10. @disneyaladdin
