Jafar is one of the scariest villains to ever exist in a Disney movie. He is crazy powerful, super manipulative and honestly just the creepiest guy around.
If you don't believe me that he is actually pure evil, think about all the things he did in that movie!
He couldn't care less about the man he watched die in front of him in the Cave of Wonders
He brainwashes the sultan to try and convince him to let him marry Jasmine (even though she didn't want to)
He sentences Aladdin to death
You might be thinking "Well he helped him escape!" but he only did that to ensure he could get into the cave
He's also mean to his sidekick
He steals the lamp and forces Genie to do things he doesn't want to do including shipping Aladdin off to somewhere very cold without the appropriate attire
He chains up Jasmine
He essentially kills the Magic Carpet
He turns Raja into a kitten (albeit a really cute one)
He turns Abu into a toy
And I mean, the entire time he's trying to kill all of them so he can be in control
The new Aladdin movie that Disney is making will be live action. They have been releasing their cast list over the last few weeks and while we were all excited about Aladdin, Jasmine and Genie, the new Jafar is giving everyone a lot of conflicting feelings.
When you see what he looks like, it's easy to see why everyone is concerned about the new Jafar
The new announcement from Disney has all their fans reeling. We are supposed to hate Jafar. He is a bad man and we are supposed to find him repulsive. It's a little bit harder to find him repulsive when he looks like this:
The new Jafar in the live-action movie will be played by Marwan Kenzari and he looks absolutely nothing like the cartoon character - in a very good way.
The Dutch-Tunisian actor is getting a lot of attention now that he has been announced as the Royal Vizier, and honestly it's absolutely hilarious.
