Disney is moving forward with Aladdin2, a sequel to last year's live-action remake and has hired a pair of writers to pen a scrip. The sequel will be a theatrical release and there is hope that Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Jasmine, and Will Smith as Genie will all return, although none of them have deals for another film and producers don't plan to discuss it with them until this new script is complete.

Details of the future plot have not been revealed yet. While some could think making a sequel would be easy as the animated Aladdin received two direct-to-home-video sequels, the live-action version. However, as an inspiration, the creators can turn to other stories described in the collection of fairy tales “A Thousand and One Nights”.

Disney's live-action remake of Aladdin has taken a magic carpet ride to box office success, earning a solid $1billion worldwide gross. And while critical reviews were mixed, audience reactions were far more favorable.

Earlier, the bar of one billion was overcome by Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King and Alice in Wonderland.
