With the pictures of the hero and the beautiful princess recently released, the next thing we needed to see is Ben Kingsley in his role of the evil Vizier. For those wondering, yes, Jafar was the Vizier in Aladdin; this movie is more and more a live action remake, but with more sword fights and less Robin Williams.
In the game, the Vizier tricks the Prince into releasing the Sands of time from their mystical hourglass, which basically messes up the entire kingdom, turning people into horrific creatures and what not. I don’t know exactly what his role will be in the film, but expect him to be an evil, sniveling bastard.
Also, in the game, he had a staff with a cobra head. Yeah. Just like this guy.
I don’t even care, this movie is going to be great. A large part of the game shows off the Prince’s physics defying acrobatics. He runs up and across walls, back flips, swings on ropes, basically he’s a gymnast that’s really proficient at decapitations. Apparently the movie is trying to recapture that, having some Parkour stuntman do some pretty incredible things.
Next May can’t come soon enough.
