Disney’s Aladdin Sequel Will Be An Original Story

Aladdin 2 Is Being Discussed at Disney

It's only been a few weeks since Guy Ritchie's live-action remake of Aladdin secured its place as the second highest-grossing live-action remake in Disney's history (Bill Condon's Beauty and the Beast now holds the top spot), but producer Dan Lin has already told comicbook.com that the company is already in the early stages of creating sequel. "And so we feel like there's more story to tell", he added.

It's a whole new world of possible profits for Disney.

Disney fans were pretty concerned when Disney introduced Will Smith as the new Genie for its live-action remake of Aladdin earlier this year. Earning over a billion dollars worldwide, it should come as no surprise that we are hearing talks about a sequel. In the story, street urchin Aladdin (Mena Massoud) falls for Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott), and seeks the help of a genie (Will Smith) to win the princess over. "People clearly loved the movie and watched it multiple times and we get lots of fan letters and people asking us to make 'Return [of] Jafar, ' and I can just tell you that we're in early stages right now, but we're certainly talking about another movie".

"I can't say too much", said Lin.


Of course, the original animated version of Disney's Aladdin already has a sequel: The Return of Jafar, a straight-to-video affair set a year after the original. Absolutely not. Chances are, they don't even know the movie exists, as it's not something that's being targeted towards them. The second sequel was an adaptation of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves (another story contained in the Arabian Nights, a collection of Middle Eastern folk tales that also contains the original story of Aladdin), but instead swapped the titular Ali Baba out with Aladdin. However, a live-action sequel would probably deviate heavily from the 69-minute, poorly-received original.

Aladdin opened in theaters on May 24, 2019.

In his interview, Lin explained that although they will be looking at the source material, the sequel will not be a "shot by shot" remake.
