Fans Are Drooling Over This Character in the New Aladdin Remake
"Hot Jafar" is totally trending.
Disney's 1992 film, Aladdin, is an all-time favorite movie, especially among people who grew up in the early 90s. And while its leading villain, Jafar, was deliciously evil, he wasn't exactly a looker. I mean, even Iago the talking parrot was cuter than him.
But, on Sunday, Entertainment Weekly shared the first photos from the upcoming live-action remake of the film…

…and let's just say that Jafar has experienced what the Internet would refer to as a massive "glo-up."

"Hot Jafar," as he has been dubbed, is played by Marwan Kenzari, a Dutch actor whose previously had roles in films like The Mummy (2017) and Ben-Hur (2016). As you can plainly see, he is a very attractive man.

So attractive, in fact, that Disney might have to change the ending, because Jasmine choosing Aladdin over Jafar is no longer remotely feasible.

Plus, he looks like he throws one heck of a party.
Honestly, Jafar looks like a super nice dude who would throw lavish parties with the dopest mixtapes. pic.twitter.com/ByODiQXmKY

And his sense of style is just the right amount of extra.

Give the people what they want, Disney!
The live action Aladdin remake should just be called Hot Jafar and should just be about Hot Jafar.

So, sorry Aladdin, we're rooting for the baddie on this one.
