Disney doesn't seem to have finished with the live-action version of Aladdin and the company is reportedly talking about putting the sequel to work. During a recent interview with Comicbook.com, Aladdin's producer Dan Lin talked about the possibility of a sequel to a Disney movie. He mentioned the positive reactions Aladdin had with fans and that they did not plan to shoot all the scenes the same as in the original animated version. But obviously, he and the other people behind the live-action adaptation feel there is more to tell here.
Lin didn't want to give anything away, but said they were watching what was done with Disney's home video sequels as soon as possible, and they were exploring which direction to go with the franchise:
"We have now. We, when we made the first movie, wanted to make as good a movie as possible and let the viewers tell us if they wanted to see more. And I would firmly say that the audience wants to see more. They have watched this movie more than once. We have a lot of fan letters where people say they go back and take their families and friends. So we think there's more to tell here. We will treat Tom the same way we treated the original Aladdin movie and we will not make the same sequel to anything that was made before. We are looking at what has been done in the past for home video and this is just more of a story subject to adaptation. Well, without revealing too much, we're definitely exploring where we can go with the franchise. ”
This live-action Disney movie was definitely a huge success with viewers, earning over $ 1 billion worldwide. And while critics were divided about the movie, mostly everyone agreed with the excellent Naomi Scott in the role of Princess Jasmine. So it's very possible that Disney doesn't want to release a potential franchise and a new star like Naomi Scott.
I do not doubt that the same situation will happen with their other successful live-action remake films, such as Lion King.
