The new, live-action model of Disney’s Aladdin has been a serious success for the studio, making over $1 billion on the international field workplace and presently sitting because the fifth highest grossing movie internationally for the 12 months. Now, it seems like a sequel is within the planning phases.
Speaking to SYFY WIRE, producer Dan Lin says that the studio would “love to” make a sequel, saying that “we feel like these characters have more adventures in store.”
Of course, the unique animated model of Disney’s Aladdin already has a sequel: The Return of Jafar, a straight-to-video affair set a 12 months after the unique. However, a live-action sequel would in all probability deviate closely from the 69-minute, poorly-received authentic.
“Like with Aladdin, it will not be a straight remake of any movie that’s been made before,” Lin says, “so we’re taking a look at ‘where’s the easiest way to go along with these characters.’”
The live-action Aladdin stayed very close to the unique animated movie in some respects, and drifted from it in others: Iago the parrot does not discuss within the new model, for example. Return of Jafar is much less well-known than the unique 1992 blockbuster, and would require an overhaul to work as a sequel to the brand new Aladdin.
Lin additionally stated that he believes director Guy Richie and star Will Smith can be prone to return: “even before the box office success, they said it was the best filmmaking experience of their lives.”
