I hope Aladdin's acting is phenomenal, otherwise I'm going to be cheering for Jafar based on his hotness alone. 

I hope Jafar wins. 

Y’all expect me to root for Aladdin when Jafar our here looking like a full balanced meal with dessert on the side? Y’all playing.

I don’t care about them show me more of daddy Jafar! 

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!!!"

Hot Jafar could show me a quarter of a nipple and I'd kick Aladdin off that magic carpet so hard by the time he hit the ground I'd be in another time zone.

Remember that scene in Aladdin where Jasmine has to pretend to be into Jafar so he doesn’t notice Aladdin?…I don’t think she’ll have to pretend. 

Jafar: “YOU WILL MARRY ME PRINCESS!” Jasmine: “I am...totally okay with that.”

I think I’m Team Jafar, you guys. 

How am I suppose to root for Aladdin when Jafar looking like this?
