Rumors are swirling that Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall is set to play Princess Jasmine in Disney’s live-action remake of “Aladdin.” The singer is reportedly on the verge of signing a contract, but is hesitant due to what the production will do to the schedule of the band.
A source from The Sun claims, “Jasmine is Jade’s perfect role, so she’s delighted to have got this far in the process. The talks have been going on for some time now. And the longer they go on, the better her chances are looking. 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…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.”
Fans seem to be ecstatic about the idea, urging Jade to take on the role.
