Disney’s Possible Aladdin Sequel Will Be ‘Fresh And New’

The Guy Ritchie-directed remake of the 1992 movie of the same name, which stars the likes of Will Smith (Genie), Mena Massoud (Aladdin) and Naomi Scott (Princess Jasmine), made more than R15 billion at the box office and now the film's producer Dan Lin has revealed there are talks of second movie as there is "more story to tell".

ComicBook.com had an interview with Aladdin producer Dan Lin before the film's Digital HD and Blu-ray release, and the publication chose to ask the Disney executive about the decision to cast Smith as the film's Genie.

Of course, Disney has yet to officially greenlight an Aladdin sequel, but it's not outside the realm of possibility. "Like with Aladdin, it will not be a straight remake of any movie that's been made before, so we're looking at 'where's the best way to go with these characters'". In fact, it was so successful that the studio has already begun talks of a sequel.

Bitcoin Still up on the Week After Failing to Hold $11,000
It is usually not now possible to buy alternative cryptocurrencies such as Kayicoin directly using US dollars. Bitcoin Scrypt (BTCS) traded down 12.3% against the dollar and now trades at $0.0104 or 0.00000092 BTC.

What would you like to see from an Aladdin sequel? And with that type of overwhelming success, it should come as no surprise that Disney is now considering a sequel. And I would say that the audience wants more. Additionally, they would have to bring Ritchie back as a director. And we'd love to have Guy back and get the team back together.

While the public was skeptical about having Smith as Genie from the start, the creative team behind Disney's Aladdin remake was sure that he was the flawless fit for the role, even from the very start.

Whether Guy Ritchie will be re-directed and Will Smith, Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott will again be seen in their roles as Jinni, Aladdin and Princess Jasmine are now unclear. And it's a role that is so complex because it requires singing and dancing, high expectations, it requires comedy, it requires drama. The first remake was released to mixed reviews, and while Rotten Tomatoes critics only rated it 57 per cent, it got a whopping 94 per cent review from audiences. The plan is to give the fans a fresh take on the story, much like what they did with the first live-action film.
