Zayn Malik fans are calling out Disney for quite possibly the biggest missed opportunity of all time.
What’s up guys? It’s Erin Robinson here with Clevver News and we have to talk about Zayn’s new cover of “A Whole New World.”
[You know this one where he looks exactly like Aladdin and sounds unbelievably magical.]
Zayn dropped the music video yesterday where he sings as Aladdin and Zhavia Ward is Jasmine.
In the video they walk around the streets of New York City, not as close to AGRABA… but itll do!
[And here I am just over here imagining them on a dreamy magic carpet. Anyone else?]
And just hours after it dropped, the video was trending number 1 on YouTube and already has almost 7 million views.
A lot of that is probably thanks to me, I have had it on repeat over here since yesterday, so no surprises here.
After seeing the video, fans, myself included, are extremely upset that Zayn wasn’t actually cast to play Aladdin in the live-action movie.
I mean he really is a spitting image of the Disney turned live action character!
The live action movie actually stars Mena Massoud, who I’m sure will be great, but us Zayn Malik fans couldn’t help but noticing that Zayn may have been a better fit for the role.
One person tweeted quote, “Zayn Malik would be a better actor for Aladdin than the movie's actual actor. I said what I said.”
And another fan actually took the time to create these photoshopped pictures of Zayn as Aladdin and it’s probably the best thing you’ll see all day.
They wrote quote, “Zayn should’ve played Aladdin no one can tell me otherwise.”
[If that doesn’t convince the Disney executives, I don’t know what will!]
The movie comes out in just two weeks, so yeah there’s definitely not enough time to go reshoot the ENTIRE movie!
But we will get hear Zayn in the movie… at the end.. during the credits.
So while Zayn may not actually play Aladdin in the movie, he’ll always be a Disney prince to me. Maybe we can get a sequel with Zayn aka ZALADDIN?
Alright guys, now I want to hear from you! What do you think of the new version of A Whole New World? And do you think Zayn should have been cast as Aladdin?
