Twitter Has A Huge Crush On New Jafar Of Disney’s Live-Action ‘Aladdin’
By Kylie Woon, 08 Aug 2017
Just a month ago, Twitter roasted Disney for struggling to find a cast for the upcoming Aladdin live-action remake.
But perhaps all is now forgiven. According to the Hollywood Reporter, actor Marwan Kenzari is currently negotiating a contract to play Aladdin antagonist Jafar, much to the delight of fans.
Kenzari, who is of Dutch-Tunisian background, looks nothing like the gaunt, snarling figure seen in the animated film. In fact, the actor—who will be seen in the film adaptation of Murder on the Orient Express by novelist Agatha Christie later this year—is winning hearts all over Twitter.
Netizens were quick to unearth plenty of photos of Kenzari—some of which featured him topless—to celebrate. What do you think of the live-action Jafar? Take a look at some reactions on Twitter below.
