In August, one of the remake producers had claimed that Disney was actually interested in a sequel. Now, Variety reported that the producers have spent the past six months designing the script for the new chapter, focusing on something new rather than adapting the sequels of the animated counterparts.
The producers also hope that actors Will Smith, Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott will be able to return, though no contracts will be entered into until the script is complete. It is not yet known whether the director of the first film, Guy Ritchie, has been hired.
It would be the fourth sequel based on Disney live action. Alice in Wonderland e Maleficent they had, in fact, already had a sequel on the big screen. Disney also officially announced a sequel for The Jungle Book directed by Jon Favreau.
Already in 2015 there were numerous rumors about a possible Aladdin prequel focused on the figure of the Genius and, more recently, some rumors have stated that one spin-off of Aladdin focused on the figure of Prince Anders is in development. Presumably, this spin-off would go to the Disney + platform, while this sequel is directed to the big screen.
