A sequel to the live-action adaptation of 2019’s Aladdin is in the works at Disney.

Last year, Disney released its live-action adaptation of Aladdin. While reviews for the film were decidedly mixed, Aladdin was a massive box office success. During its theatrical run, Aladdin would go on to earn well over $1B at the worldwide box office. Rumors of a sequel came about early on but now we have word that a proper sequel to Aladdin is now in the works at Disney.

According to a report from Variety, the upcoming Disney sequel is being written by John Gatins and Andrea Berloff. Original screenplay writers John August and Guy Ritchie are currently not attached to the project. In addition, it is unknown if Guy Ritchie will return to direct. Producers Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, however, will be returning and hope to have the original cast return as well. In addition to the sequel, an Aladdin spinoff focused on Billy Magnussen’s Prince Anders is in development at Disney+. Neither project currently has a release date.
