The Dude Playing Jafar In The New Live Action 'Aladdin' Is So Hot That We're Now Rooting For The Bad Guy
The actor playing Jafar is making it really hard for us to stay on Aladdin's side.
Marwan Kenzari as Jafar has got the internet swooning.
So recently, Disney released sneak peeks into the new live-action Aladdin movie via Entertainment Weekly:
While some folks have got their panties in a twist over how Will Smith isn't blue (JFYI, he'll be blue for most of the movie, Will Smith clarified that this was the genie in his human form), we're mostly preoccupied with how smoking hot Jafar is.
And the internet is in quite a tizzy over hot Jafar.
Here are some of our favourite Twitter reactions to Marwan Kenzari as Jafar.

And TBH, Marwan Kenzari as Jafar is making it difficult to accept that Jasmine would pick Aladdin over Jafar now.

Aladdin: “Pick me Jasmine!”
Hot Jafar: “Come here.”
Hot Jafar: “You come here too.”

In the cartoon movie, it was believable that Princess Jasmine chose Aladdin, because Jafar was looking like a skeleton with a painted on beard. Now we gonna be like wayment Jasmine you might wanna reconsider cuz Jafar is FOINE!!! pic.twitter.com/Wa0Ur4pSRo
