ALADDIN Sequel Reportedly Being Considered By Disney After The Movie Grosses Over $1 Billion Worldwide

The liv-action Aladdin movie massively exceeded expectations by grossing over $1 billion at the worldwide box office, and now Disney is said to be considering moving forward with a sequel. Check it out...

Ahead of its arrival in theaters, Aladdin was widely ridiculed for the effects used to bring Will Smith's Genie to life and written off by most fans of the original simply because Guy Ritchie was at the helm. Well, not only did the movie receive an overwhelmingly positive response upon release, but it also went on to gross over $1 billion at the worldwide box office. 

Now, producer Dan Lin has revealed that talks are already taking place for a sequel, news which really shouldn't come as a surprise after how well-received the first instalment was. 

"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. 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."

So, it doesn't sound like we'll be getting a straightforward adaptation of The Return of Jafar, something which should be a relief to those left disappointed by The Lion King.
 
"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," Lin continued. "So without giving away too much, we are certainly exploring where we can go with this franchise."
