Disney Is Exploring a Sequel to Their Live-Action ALADDIN
Disney’s live-action remake of Aladdin was a fun film that ended up being better than I expected, and for the most part audiences seemed to enjoy it. The film, which was directed by Guy Richie, brought in over $1 billion at the box office. With all of these live-action Disney remakes making so much money, it makes sense that they would want to start developing sequels. One of the sequels they are currently exploring is for Aladdin.
CB recently had the opportunity to talk to producer Dan Lin about the possibility of an Aladdin sequel and this is what he had to say:
"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. 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."
I’ve never really seen any of the straight to DVD sequels, and if i have, I don’t remember. Of course, Aladdin doesn’t need a sequel, there are people out there that could not care less about a sequel, but the people who would want a sequel are definitely in the majority and we all know Disney will want to cash in on that.
This sequel has yet to get a green light, right now they are just trying to figure out what they would do with the story if they end up proceeding, and chances are they eventually will move forward with it.
What did you think of Disney's live-action Aladdin? What would you want to see from a sequel?
