Aladdin is getting a sequel. The movie made a killing over the Summer, so Disney is jumping on the sequel trail and hoping that the cast, including Will Smith, will return.
Sources say the movie is in early development, but after spending the last six months figuring out what direction to take the next film, producers look to have found their path. Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, who produced the original, are back producing through their Rideback banner, with Ryan Halprin executive producing. It’s unknown at this time whether director Guy Ritchie will return. Producers hope to bring back stars Will Smith, Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott, but offers won’t be extended to the cast until a script is ready.
