It was called Naomi Scott on How disney Changing jazmín in Live-Action aladdín - Naomi Scott Hollywood Reporter Interview
Here's some stuff I remembered seeing:
film won’t be out until May 2019, but Naomi Scott, who plays Princess Jasmine and is shooting the film in London right now, can assure you that her Jasmine will be a little different than the 1992 cartoon version. The character is more well-rounded, Scott told
. “Being a female character is also about being a real person, and guess what? [She] can be strong and have fun, but also get it wrong and be emotional," Scott said. "She’s a multidimensional woman, and she doesn’t have to just be one thing. So in this movie, you see her go on such a roller coaster, as opposed to her one goal being to fall in love or get married."
This Jasmine also has clear political drive. “You really get in this adaptation of the movie that her heart is for her people, and her main objective is what’s best for her kingdom,” Scott said. “And you really get a sense that she has those leadership qualities within her.”
But the biggest change for Jasmine is the introduction of a female, human confidante for her in the form of new character Dalia, a handmaiden Nasim Pedrad is playing. “I never realized it, but in the animation, Jasmine is really the only female character—isn’t that crazy?” Scott said. “The Dalia character is so important to this movie because she’s the only other female character. She may be the handmaiden but they’re best friends; they’re so close because they’ve grown up together. So we wanted people to watch the movie and see Jasmine’s relationship with another woman, and be like, ‘Ah, that’s what I’m like with my girlfriend,’ or ‘We would so do that if I was in that position.’ That’s something that’s missing from the animation."
That said, Jasmine’s other important OG companion, her tiger Rajah, will reportedly be in the film as well, according to
