Dev Patel looks too old for the role. He’s a late 20s who looks mid 30’s. I may be biased on this assessment since I watched him from Slumdog through the Newsroom, which only seems like an eternity.There’s a few people I’ve seen say that the parts of Aladdin and Jasmine should’ve gone to the leads of Slumdog Millionaire. After looking them up they definitely look the part and while I don’t really remember the movie I bet they’re great actors too.
For Jafar, even though he was already in Jungle Book, Ben Kingsley would’ve been a great choice imo.
The actress from Power Rangers was a good casting choice.
