Who's Who? Wednesday

May 4, 2011


Today I chose to write about a great Disney villain, and I dedicate this week's Who's Who? to my buddy, Tyler Dodge! Jafar is a wonderful villain; he has amazing powers beyond belief. Jafar has appeared in Aladdin and Aladdin: The Return of Jafar, as well as Mickey's House of Villains and Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse. He also has been on House of Mouse, Hercules: The Animated series, Aladdin the video game, Disney's Aladdin in Nasira's Revenge for Playstation, and the Kingdom Hearts series.

Jafar has made his home in Agrabah and at the end of Aladdin, Genie sends him to the Cave of Wonders. Jafar has a sister named Nasira and a pet parrot named Iago, who eventually turns his back on Jafar.

Jafar has a wicked Arabian look to him. He wears a long black and red robe with a red sash around his waist, and a black turban with a yellow strip on it, a ruby jewel, and a red feather. But his best accessory is his magical serpent staff that helps with his magical powers. He also has a very curly goatee and large eyebrows.

Jafar was animated by Andreas Deja and Kathy Zelinski. Jafar has been voiced by 3 people: Akira Takarada in the Japanese versions, and Jonathan Freeman and Jim Cummings in others.

Jafar can be found in Disney parks around the world. He can be found in Villains Mix and Mingle at the Magic Kingdom, in Fantasmic! trying to defeat Mickey Mouse, and on the Disney Cruise Line in a show called Disney Villains Tonight. He can also be found as a meet and greet character on occasion over at the Magic of Disney Animation building at Disney's Hollywood Studios and he makes appearances during Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Parties at the Magic Kingdom.
