It sounds like Disney may be planning another trip to Agrabah, as it's being reported that the studio is in the very early stages of developing a sequel to their 2019 billion-dollar blockbuster Aladdin.

Variety is reporting that Walt Disney Studios is currently in the very early stages of developing an original sequel to last year's billion-dollar blockbuster Aladdin, with John Gatins (Flight; Real Steel) and Andrea Berloff (Straight Outta Compton; The Kitchen) penning the script. 

The sequel will reportedly be based on an all-new original idea which was conceived after essentially six months of intense brainstorming, and will not be an adaptation of either of the direct-to-video animated sequels from the '90s.

While Variety's initial report was uncertain whether director Guy Ritchie would return, The Hollywood Reporter has learned that he will indeed be back at the helm of the sequel. Stars Will Smith, Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott are also all expected to reprise their roles as the Genie, Aladdin and Jasmine, respectively, but no formal offers will be made until the script is actually ready. 

With its predecessor having grossed over $1.051 billion at the worldwide box office, the sequel will unsurprisingly also be a theatrical release.
