The live-action remake of Disney’s 1992 animated film Aladdin was released in 2019 under the same title. It’s no surprise that Aladdin was a huge hit in 2019. Guy Ritchie directed the film, which was an instant success upon its release. The film was not a carbon copy of the original 1992 film, but the main plot remained the same. Now, Disney has officially confirmed Aladdin 2, the film’s sequel, will be released in February 2020. Guy Ritchie will take over as director and direct the film. Ritchie, who is currently working on his next film, Cash Truck, is in charge of this latest Disney sequel. The director is expected to start on this blockbuster after completing his work on Jason Statham’s latest movie. Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich are also back on board to produce.
The filming of Aladdin 2 will take longer than expected. Despite the fact that it appears that the project is now moving along quickly. Disney hired writers John Gatins and Andrea Berloff for the script of Aladdin 2 in February 2020. The film is expected to be released in May 2025, nearly 6 years after the first film.
As for the cast of Aladdin 2, it has been confirmed that Mena Massoud will reprise his role as Aladdin; a sequel would be unthinkable without Aladdin, and he is eager to get started. Will Smith and Naomi Scott will also reprise their roles as Genie and Princess Jasmine, respectively. The writers have confirmed that the film will not be a sequel to The Return Of Jafar, so we may not see Marwan Kenzari, who played Jafar in the film.
