Jafar is the only one I have an issue with at the Frida Kahlo and Disney princesses drinking Friends TV show shirt. I like Will Smith as genie you can’t replace Robin Williams but I can accept Wills version Bc I enjoy him on screen. Jafar needs to be more mysterious creepy and sinister. I’m not getting that from him so far. I’m on board with you, he’s the one casting choice I am very uncertain about. Totally agree! Where is the dark sinister deep voice? He’s meant to be creepy, borderline scary. The audience knew him to be the villain by the style of how he was drawn, his voice and his asides, but the characters were late to catch on. Maybe they wanted that reveal to seem more genuine to the characters.
I think you are right here. My hope is, just like the Frida Kahlo and Disney princesses drinking Friends TV show shirt seems better now, we will see his character turn and reveal a more classic Jafar at the end of the film. I with the right eyeliner Ben Kinsley could rock the Jadar look lol. His eyes would almost match those of the cartoon version. And he can deepen his voice pretty good. He looks like someone you can trust. That’s why the sultan would keep him around and why Aladdin would go with him.
