If you’ve seen Taylor Swift’s newest music video for ‘Look What You Made Me Do,’ or the lyric video, or her new line of serpent specific merch, or have been on the internet, it shouldn’t surprise you that the pop princess has fully embraced her new reputation as a capital-S Snake.
You know who else is a big-ass snake? Jafar.

Disney’s Wiki article on Jafar is surprisingly in-depth and surprisingly really harsh.
Like numerous clinically-diagnosed psychopaths, Jafar wears a metaphorical mask of normalcy, establishing himself as a cool-headed schemer and gaining the trust of those around him. An emotional sadist, he gets a laugh out of seeing another fellow’s dreams turn into nightmares one by one.
Sound familiar? Although, let me be very clear (because I’m afraid of Taylor Swift’s legal team): I do not condone any accusations or rumors of Taylor Swift’s alleged psychopathic behaviors, clinically diagnosed or otherwise.
Jafar is the most stylish and fashion-forward character of the franchise. He’s tall, bony, dressed in extravagant red clothing, and carries a gold, ruby-eyed, cobra-headed staff.

Seriously though, am I wrong???
Following the release of ‘Look What You Made Me Do’, I figure we’re around the point in The Return of Jafar where Jafar makes his debut as a genie. Powerful, vindictive, and very well accessorized. But there’s no way he’s actually in charge. After all, he’s the guy granting the wishes.
At the end of OG Aladdin, Jafar’s in hiding. Call it house arrest, call it unpopularity. What was T Swift even up to after Kim’s Famous Snapchat receipts? Plotting her revenge, apparently.

So what happens next? Will The Return of Taylor suck as much as The Return of Jafar? And what about the sequel to the sequel? How will Aladdin and the King of Thieves pop up? Jafar isn’t even in King of Thieves!
If you ask me, this whole feud should have been direct-to-DVD.
