After the mammoth success that the live-action version of Aladdin saw, the Mouse house is now planning for a sequel.
The live-action version of 'Aladdin' transported the iconic characters from the animated movie to a whole new world this summer. The live-action adaptation too earned more than $1 billion at the worldwide box office. After the massive success in theaters and the fact that the original Aladdin already had sequels, it comes as no surprise that Disney is planning to do a follow-up movie. The latest version of the movie left it on a fairly open-ended manner, hence there is already a chance allowing for more story to be told in the future.
Dan Lin, the producer of the movie had an interview with Comicbook was asked of the people at Disney were having conversations about an Aladdin sequel, and where the franchise could go next. To that Lin answered, saying, "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. "
He added, "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."
At this point, there are only talks and it's worth noting that Disney doesn't have an Aladdin sequel in production just yet. Nothing has been confirmed by Disney and Lin is clear that only conversations are being had as of now. But with the massive box office haul that the first film delivered, a sequel should be considered a near-guarantee.
