Aladdin 2 is officially happening!

Multiple outlets confirm that an Aladdin sequel is in the works at Disney. 

After the reboot’s success comes a follow-up film that will grant you some more wishes. Despite being in very early development, it is known that Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, who produced the original, will be back producing through their Rideback banner, with Ryan Halprin executive producing.

It is unknown if director Guy Ritchie is attached to direct, and offers to reboot stars — Will Smith, Mena Massoud, and Naomi Scott — won’t be extended until the script is done. 

The 2019 live-action adaptation was a massive hit, becoming the fourth film to cross the billion-dollar global box office milestone.
