Disney Considering A Sequel For Live-Action Aladdin

Disney Considering A Sequel For Live-Action Aladdin

A follow-up to the live-action Aladdin movie is being discussed at Disney, producer Dan Lin reveals. Directed by Guy Ritchie, the movie starred Will Smith as the Genie, Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine, Mena Massoud as Aladdin, and Marwan Kenzari as Jafar. It grossed over $1 billion at the global box office, becoming the fifth-highest grossing film of 2019.

While it was a smash hit at the box office, Aladdin received mixed reviews from critics. Smith, Massoud and Scott’s performances were hailed, as well as the aesthetic and music of the blockbuster.

However, they were less than thrilled with the way Ritchie handled the movie’s direction, as well as the tweaks made to Jafar’s character. Despite all those complaints, it seems like its impressive sales turnout will be the factor to dictate Aladdin’s future, as Disney is apparently open to  a sequel.

We have now. We certainly when we first made the movie wanted to just make the best movie we could and let audiences tell us if they wanted to see more. And I would say resoundingly audiences want to see more. They’ve watched this movie multiple times. We have lots of fan letters about people who really go back and they bring their friends and bring their family. And so we feel like there’s more story to tell. We are going to treat it the same way we treat the original Aladdin movie and not going to do a shot by shot remake of anything that’s been done before. We’re really looking at what’s been done before in the past and the home video, and there’s just more story to tell with the underlying materials. So without giving away too much, we are certainly exploring where we can go with this franchise.
