Little Mix's Jade Thirlwall Might Play Jasmine in Disney's Live Action 'Aladdin'

When you think of your dream casting for Princess Jasmine in the live action Aladdin, do you think of Jade Thirlwall? Maybe you should.

The Little Mix singer is reportedly in talks to possibly play the royal in the upcoming movie, via The Sun.

“Jasmine is Jade‘s perfect role, so she’s delighted to have got this far in the process,” an inside source shared of the shortlist. “The talks have been going on for some time now and the longer they go on, the better her chances are looking.”

Her band mates Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock are really supportive of it, too.

“All of the girls have their fingers crossed for her, as they always support each other, but they also know that it would be a huge commitment,” the insider continued. “Jade would need to film for months, and that’s before promotion for the movie began.”

“So this week they sat down in a break from their tour dance rehearsals and talked about what they might do if Disney did decide to cast her. It was quite an emotional conversation but they all agreed that they would try to make it work for her around Little Mix commitments. It wouldn’t be easy, but as far as it’s possible, that’s what they want.”

    Mulan can have a full Chinese cast but when it comes to Aladdin, those same rules clearly don’t apply. Are Arab actors only meant to play terrorists and nerds?!?!

    • maria

      Do you even search to know that she is Arab descendant? Because she is, on her mother side. So I think the rules still apply

    • lady POWER

      But she has Egyptian and Arab (Yemenite) ancestry.

  • Celebrity FRC

    I hope this could happend

  • Melinda Pérez

    I don’t see it. She does not look like her at all…
