Little Mix star Jade Thirlwall is in the mix to play Princess Jasmine in the upcoming Aladdin live-action movie, according to reports.
The pop star has emerged as the frontrunner to take on the role, which was voiced by Linda Larkin in the 1992 Disney movie, and her bandmates are cheering her on.
“All of the girls have their fingers crossed for her, as they always support each other, but they also know that it would be a huge commitment,” an insider tells The Sun. “Jade would need to film for months, and that’s before promotion for the movie began. So this week they sat down in a break from their tour dance rehearsals and talked about what they might do if Disney did decide to cast her.
“It was quite an emotional conversation but they all agreed that they would try to make it work for her around Little Mix commitments. It wouldn’t be easy, but as far as it’s possible, that’s what they want.”
