THE EVOLUTION OF JAFAR
The first four sketches are different design ideas were floating around early on, before animation began, done by Jafar’s supervising animator Andreas Deja. Clearly he went for the second one.
The fifth sketch was made by Aladdin’s director John Musker, which was made after Jafar voice actor, Jonathan Freeman, was recording for the character. It shows the perfect attitude to go along with the character’s voice.
The last sketch was done by Andreas Deja, and has a Iago cut out, which was provided by its supervising animator, Will Finn.
Wonder how he would look if Andreas would have gone a different direction. Personally, with the voice and the character, I think he nailed it. He is the ultimate villain animator, he certainly is responsible for my personal favorites.
