Naomi Scott portrayed Princess Jasmine in Disney’s live-action ‘Aladdin’
About 27 years since the original film’s release date, Disney’s Aladdin is back in live-action form. The reviews for this live-action film are split, however, some critics say that Naomi Scott’s interpretation of Princess Jasmine is the highlight of this adaptation.
Additionally, Naomi Scott sings a new song written for this live-action movie, for Princess Jasmine. The empowering song, entitled “Speechless” is already speculated to earn a Grammy nomination.
“[Princess Jasmine is] so many different things at so many different points,” Naomi Scott said in an interview with Independent. “What I love is that you can be strong and you can cry. You can be strong and feel weak. Yeah, she’s sassy, but what’s more important is that she’s actually fighting for the freedom of choice for her people. That’s feminism, it’s not just a witty comment.”
The cast initially received backlash from fans, primarily because of the lack of representation in this film, Naomi Scott being from Britain.
