Disney is Making a Live-Action 'Aladdin' Prequel!

Aladdin is making a comeback!

Disney is creating a live-action prequel to the 1992 classic film, according to THR.

Reportedly titled Genie, the film will be written by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift. It will “focus on the realm of the Genies and tell how that one Genie ended up enslaved in the lamp.”

In case you don’t already know, Aladdin follows a street urchin who vies for the love of a beautiful princess, and uses a genie’s magic power to make himself off as a prince in order to marry her.

While the movie is still in the early stages, the ultimate goal is to lead into an Aladdin live-action movie too.

Also, later this year, the Blu-Ray HD rerelease of the animated classic, Aladdin, will also hit shelves in mid October!
