Chris Froome's weakness should free his rivals, says Greg LeMond
Froome entered the day with an 18-second lead over Aru and 51-second advantage over Bardet. Landa was the biggest victor of the day, jumping from seventh to fifth, now 1:09 back.
It's still unknown who will play the film's villain Jafar.
It seemed finding a male lead who can act and sing, in his 20s, was hard especially as the studio needed someone of Middle-Eastern or Indian descent.
The Aladdin movie was originally slated to begin production in July, but the start of filming has been moved to August due to casting delays.
Scott, meanwhile, made her blockbuster debut earlier this year as the Pink Ranger in March's "Power Rangers". The project does not yet have a release date.
