Disney is Creating a Live-Action ‘Aladdin’ Prequel Movie


‘Aladdin’ live-action prequel in the works at Disney.

If you have ever wondered how the Genie got into the bottle in the first place, then you are about to find out.

Disney is making a new Aladdin movie and it will be a prequel based on the 1992 animated classic.

The studio is developing Genies, a live-action comedy adventure however, this time it will be without the late Robin Williams.

From THR:

The studio is developing Genies, a live-action comedy adventure that is being written by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift. Tripp Vinson is on board to produce via his Vinson Films banner.

Aladdin is a centuries-old Arabic folk tale that got the animated Disney treatment in 1992 in a film featuring Robin Williams as the voice of the blue-skinned Genie.

The movie tells the story of Aladdin, a street urchin who finds a lamp that unleashes a Genie who grants him three wishes. A love interest and a sorcerer also figure into the proceedings.

The new movie is expected to focus on the world of Genies and reveal how Aladdin’s Genie ended up enslaved. Although, the movie is still in development, the long-term plan is to create several movies leading up to an Aladdin live-action movie.
