Audiences have been loving the live-action remakes of Disney classics so far, with their most recent venture Beauty and the Beast taking in a staggering amount on it’s opening weekend. But the new Aladdin film is giving them a different kind of feeling, other than nostalgia.
Marwan Kenzari – who was in The Mummy – has just been cast as bad guy Jafar, and now fans don’t know who to root for anymore.

The Dutch-Tunisian actor even had people looking at the story’s plot in a new light entirely…
Now that you mention it, Aladdin DID lie straight out the gate, stalked Jasmine and put her life in danger. Finish him Jafar 😭😭😭😍 https://t.co/k7na9pbw7h

Some even struggled to keep focused…
Remember he's evil, remember he's evil, remember his abs….🤤

Oh, but in case you’re not convinced about turning on our protagonist just yet… HOW BOUT NOW?
