'Once Upon A Time' Casts Aladdin & Jafar For Season 6

'Once Upon A Time' Casts Aladdin & Jafar For Season 6

Once Upon A Time revealed that Aladdin and Jafar are coming to Storybrooke in season 6.

The show revealed that Deniz Akdeniz will take on the role of Aladdin while Oded Fehr will portray Jafar during 2016 San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday (July 23)

The upcoming season is “not going to be ‘Hyde comes to town, we fight with him for 10 episodes, and then the winter finale he dies, we move on.’ We kind of changed around what we’re doing this year… going back to that season 1 mentality, with small town stories and smaller arcs. We’re planning a 22 episode story, as oppose to just kind of breaking it up into 2 parts,” creator/EP Edward Kitsis shared at ATX earlier in the year.

WHAT DO YOU THINK about Deniz as Aladdin and Oded as Jafar?

    ok but why do they always go for a lighter skin version ? no shade but like the pic gives it all, in the cartoon aladdin is much darker than pretty much all the actors that have played him, it’s like hollywood has a problem with darker skins

    Why aren’t they using the same actor for Jafar that they used on Once Upon A Time in Wonderland? Are we meant to forget the show ever happened?

    I agree ladies, that’s who I thought of first as well.
