Disney In Early Talks For Live Action ALADDIN Sequel RETURN OF JAFAR

Of course, Disney has yet to officially greenlight an Aladdin sequel, but it's not outside the realm of possibility.

Superstar Will Smith reached a kind of climax with "Aladdin, ' the Disney film became the most successful film of his career. So we think there is more to tell from the story". Some fans have apparently written letters to Disney to tell them that they loved the movie so much that they got their friends to join when they went to watch it again. In the story, street urchin Aladdin (Mena Massoud) falls for Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott), and seeks the help of a genie (Will Smith) to win the princess over. The latter is also given a whole lot more material to build up a problematic character, with the same being done to Marwan Kenzari's Jaffar, while new characters introduced offer great additions to the plot.

"I can tell you, that just like with the first "Aladdin" movie, we're not going to make just a straight remake", said Lin. And with that type of overwhelming success, it should come as no surprise that Disney is now considering a sequel.

Disney released two straight-to-video "Aladdin" sequels in the '90s.

ComicBook.com spoke with Lin this week and asked him which of the animated movie's sequels would he like to tackle in live-action: Return of Jafar or Aladdin and the King of Thieves?

Lin, who was a big fan of the original animated movie growing up, said they're looking at all of the different ideas that have been out there in the past in order to tell the right story for fans and for them moving forward.

"So without giving too much away, we are certainly exploring where we can go with this franchise", he added. However, a live-action sequel would probably deviate heavily from the 69-minute, poorly-received original. Lin certainly hopes so, saying: "We'd love to have Guy back and get the team back together".

"This film is going to piss off a lot of racists and that makes me very happy".

The live-action version of "Aladdin" will be available on digital release August 27 and on Blu-ray on September 10.
