The pair confirmed to TV Guide that not only will the much-speculated Ariel (AKA the Little Mermaid) make a splash in Season 2, but so will Aladdin and Jafar, the Royal Vizier of Agrabah. Apparently they’re keen on LOST alum Naveen Andrews for Jafar.
Fans will no doubt question whether you have Aladdin without Jasmine? I’ll turn Once again to writer/consulting producer Jane Espenson who recently earmarked Jasmine as a potential arrival — so we’ll see on that one.
Horowitz and Kitis, both former LOST producers, also have their eyes on LOST alum Jorge Garcia and are hoping to carve out a role for him following the cancellation of Alcatraz earlier this year.
We’ll keep you posted on Once casting news and updates as we get it.
