Acting as the direct sequel to Aladdin’s real action movie last year, the follow-up will be written by John Gatins (Flight and Flight). Andrea Berloff (Straight Outta Compton) with the original Hale Guy Ritchie in the director’s chair. Mena Masood, Naomi Scott, and Will Smith also hope to revive their respective roles as Aladdin, Jasmine, and Jinnie, although the actors have not yet been formally signed. Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich are also back on board for production.
Last year, it was reported that discussions about the sequel to Aladdin began to take place at Disney. According to a new report by The Hollywood Reporter, the company placed Aladdin 2 in a writer’s room about possible creative instructions for taking over. Reportedly, the studio and the producer were considering adopting more ideas from the Middle East folklore collection One Thousand and One Nights. In addition to sponsoring Aladdin’s original story, “The Magic Lamp of Aladdin,” the collection also includes stories such as “Ali Baba and Fort Thiers”.
Disney People Are Remaking Several Of Their Classic Animated Films
Disney people are remaking several of their classic animated films, while it began shortly before making more and more sequels for some of them. A new direct version of the animated Disney movie of the same name of 1992, Naya Aladdin received a live-action treatment using the same story, with most of the same characters playing the same roles. As with many other remakes, some fans of the original cried when the new version of Aladdin hit theaters last year, but you can’t argue with the results. With a collection of $ 355 million in the United States, the film raised $ 1.05 billion in global ticket sales, but it is now a confirmed follow-up.
Aladdin 2 is the latest in a trend of live-action or hyper-realistic remakes of animated Disney movies. We have previously seen films like The Jungle Book and Beauty and The Beast with a live-action treatment, and last year, The Lion King premiered in theaters, while A New Lady and Trump debuted at Disney +. In addition to Aladdin 2, several similar Disney movies are also on the horizon, including Lilo and Stitch, Bambi and Peter Pan, and updated versions of Wendy.
At this time, it is not clear if Aladdin 2 will potentially reach theaters, but it seems that the progress in the project is now rushing. We’ll see if the sequel manages to get closer to the benefits brought by the original movie if they don’t have to go through completely, but if so, we are ready to watch the third installment of the Aladdin Can live-action series, just like the original animated. We received this news from Hollywood Reporter.
