Marwan Kenzari is now in talks to play the villainous Jafar in Disney and director Guy Ritchie's upcoming live-action musical movie, Aladdin.While the story of Aladdin originated as one of the many folk tales in the centuries-old story collection One Thousand and One Nights, Ritchie's film is based on the Mouse House's Oscar-winning 1992 animated movie adaptation of the tale.

After college, Kenzari joined the Amsterdam Theatre Group where he worked with internationally acclaimed director Ivo van Hove, a Tony Award winner for A View from the Bridge on Broadway. “Ivo van Hove is a very important man at his company in Amsterdam.Jafar tries to drown Aladdin to verify who he is and whether he has the lamp on him, yet he only gives a passing glance down at the water after pushing him in. Even if Aladdin had had the lamp on his person, it would’ve taken some time and effort to summon the genie when his hands and feet are both bound.For example Jafar was first played by Naveen Andrews — who is Indian — and later replaced by Israeli actor Oded Fehr. Aladdin was played by an actor with Turkish ancestry, and Jasmine by an Indian-Chinese actress. Other cast members were of Indian ancestry or else Mexican in the case of Peter Gadiot.
Disney is bringing ALADDIN back to the big screen in 2019. But this isn’t the animated film released in 1992. The new ALADDIN is a live-action film with some fresh characters, all-new songs, and, we expect, a few new story twists to go along with them. Here is everything we know about the live-action ALADDIN remake. The Aladdin Release Date.

A street rat frees a genie from a lamp, granting all of his wishes and transforming himself into a charming prince in order to marry a beautiful princess. But soon, an evil sorcerer becomes hell.
On August 31, 2019, producer Dan Lin, has stated that if a sequel for this film ever came into production, it will have an original story, instead of being a direct adaptation of The Return of Jafar (1994) or Aladdin and the King of Thieves (1996), the direct-to-video releases of the original animated Aladdin continuity.
Jafar's wish to become the most powerful genie of all imprisons himself in a lamp, until he is summoned by Abis Mal, the Chief of Thieves. Once released, Jafar seeks revenge against Aladdin and it's up to Aladdin and his friends to defend Agrahbah from Jafar's malice.
In the 1992 movie, Jafar wishes for Jasmine to fall in love with him. He doesn't know that's beyond the Genie's powers, so Jasmine takes advantage of the moment and plays along to distract Jafar as Aladdin tries to take back the magic lamp.

Aladdin then takes a deal with the evil Jafar to enter a mysterious cave of wonder and retrieve a magic lamp with an all-powerful genie awaiting inside. After being trapped in the cave, Aladdin awakens the genie who grants him three wishes and tries to win the love of Princess Jasmine and stop the evil Jafar.
