Rumors have fluttered around for some time about Jade Thirlwall playing the iconic Princess Jasmine in Disney’s upcoming live-action version “Aladdin.” Many fans were all for the idea, wanting the Little Mix singer to take on the role of a lifetime. However, when the cast for the live-action remake was announced at the D23 Expo over the weekend, Jade and Mixers were left with a salty taste in their mouths. The role of Jasmine went to actress Naomi Scott. Naomi is most famous for her recent role as the Pink Ranger in the “Power Rangers” movie.
After the news became public, Jade expressed how she felt via instagram with a picture of herself holding a gun with a banner attached reading “Over It.” Some fans are disappointed that Jade won’t be on the big screen, but others are calling her out and telling her to get over herself.
Check out the post below.
