Those who associate Iago, the sidekick to main villain Jafar, with longtime voice actor Gilbert Gottfried (1992’s Aladdin, The Return of Jafar, Aladdin and the King of Thieves) will soon have a new voice to associate with the red-plumed talking scarlet macaw: Alan Tudyk.
The latest trailer for Aladdin.
Tudyk, who has a healthy list of notable voice-acting under his belt (King Candy in Wreck It Ralph, The Duke of Weselton in Frozen, Hei Hei in Moana and K-2SO in Star Wars: Rogue One) will join Will Smith as the Genie, Mena Massoud as Aladdin and Naomi Scott as Jasmine. Disney’s live-action Aladdin, due in theaters May 24, will be helmed by English director Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes, The Man from U.N.C.L.E.).
