Da We Got This Covered

Aladdin 2 In Development At Disney, Will Follow Return Of Jafar

Disney’s tactic of remaking their classic animated movies in live-action might not always go down well with critics, but you can’t argue with those box office numbers. Analysts predict that The Lion King will hit big when it arrives next week, much as the Aladdin remake smashed through $900 million back in May. It’s not too surprising, then, that we’re hearing the House of Mouse is working on another Arabian night.
We Got This Covered has been told by sources close to the studio that Disney is developing an Aladdin 2. From what we understand, much of the cast from the first film is expected to return but given that the project is only in the earliest stages of development at present, it’s unclear whether Guy Ritchie will be back to direct the sequel. Our sources say that the plot will follow closely to The Return of Jafar though, the straight-to-video follow-up to the animated flick released in 1994.

As the title suggests, the sequel’s story saw the evil Grand Vizier-turned-Genie escape from the Cave of Wonders to wreak havoc on Agrabah once again. Honestly, the movie isn’t one of Disney’s finest hours, as the plot is pretty slight. But the filmmakers behind the new Aladdin could maybe just use the framework of the animated version to come up with something different – and not slavishly recreate the original for once.

All that being said, there might be one hiccup here. 2019’s Aladdin ended with the titular hero wishing for Genie to become human, with Will Smith’s character last seen sailing around the world with his new family. Genie’s magic powers are a major part of the franchise’s appeal, though, so they might have to come up with some way of putting him back into the lamp. Perhaps Jafar, who’s now a Genie himself, might change reality once again as part of his revenge?
In any case, while Disney has resisted the urge to turn their live-action remakes into franchises (apart from Alice in Wonderland and Maleficent, but those are slightly different cases), it looks like Aladdin might be the first one to get a sequel, and we’ll be sure to keep you posted as more about this potential second magic carpet ride comes to light.

Che si parli di Aladdin 2 è vero. Che segua Il Ritorno di Jafar crediamo di no, almeno non fedelmente . Il film se si farà (devono vedere prima di tutto se funziona Maleficent 2 prima di dar il via ai vari sequel, già Il Libro della Giungla 2 è in stand by fino a quando non testano Maleficent 2, dopo il flop di Alice Attraverso lo Specchio ci vanno molto cauti), sarà ovviamente tra 5 o 6 anni (di solito per i sequel il tempo è quello, tra inventare la sceneggiatura, commissionare il film e tra impegni del cast e realizzazione tecnica e tutto, il tempo è di 5 o 6 anni, anche se non capiamo come mai ci mettano tanto, per le serie tv fanno da un anno all'altro, massimo si aspettano 2 anni ma poi ci sono, per i film spesso è sui 5/6 anni, anche i Marvel - Uomo Ragno a parte - hanno comunque un tot di tempo tra una pellicola dedicata a quel specifico supereroe e l'altra dedicata sempre allo stesso specifico supereroe) e crediamo che non seguiranno certo la trama de Il Ritorno di Jafar. Alcuni accenni potrebbero starci ma la storia sarà completamente nuova.

L'ideale per me sarebbe proprio unire Il ritorno di Jafar e Aladdin e il Re dei Ladri! wub.gif

Dal sito Disinsider:

Is a live-action Return of Jafar in the works?

Disney is reportedly working on a follow-up film to Guy Ritchie’s live-action Aladdin remake.

At this stage, the alleged project is just being called Aladdin 2, but according to We Got This Covered, the plot closely resembles that of the cult-classic The Return of Jafar – the 1994 direct-to-video animated sequel to Aladdin (1992).

We should stress at this stage that nothing has been officially confirmed by Disney bosses, but the rumors are definitely out there – so why don’t you just ruminate, while we illuminate the possibilities…

Say what you want about live-action Disney remakes, no one can argue that they’re not making the House of Mouse Scrooge McDuck levels of riches right now. And with the recent Aladdin remake – starring Will Smith, Naomi Scott and Mena Massoud – having just crossed the $950 million mark at the global box office, is it really that surprising that Disney bosses would be keen to cash in on a sequel, as soon as possible?

According to We Got This Covered, the plot of the alleged Aladdin live-action sequel echoes that of The Return of Jafar.

In the animated sequel, the eccentric Grand Vizier-turned-evil-Genie Jafar escapes from the Cave of Wonders and returns to Agrabah, seeking revenge on the street-rat that bested him – Aladdin. The sequel hasn’t exactly gone down in history as one of Disney’s top successes, in fact, it’s generally dismissed by critics, with a 59% rating on IMDb and a 33% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. That being said, it still has a strong cult following 25 years later.

But who knows, a little live-action magic could be all that’s needed to breathe new life into this somewhat forgotten sequel (if you ask us, out of all of Disney’s animated straight-to-video sequels, The Return of Jafar is the diamond in the rough).

And, let’s not forget, Disney has confirmed that at least nine other untitled live-action remakes are to be released before the end of 2023 – could one of these films be Aladdin 2? Is another magic carpet ride just over the horizon?

We don’t know about you, but we’re saving one of our wishes for a live-action The Return of Jafar remake.

Ma dai, secondo me non dovrebbero rovinare il brand dei remake con i sequel, hanno già tanto materiale rifacendo i vecchi classici! Nel caso lo facessero comunque, se non sarà sulla storia del ritorno di Jafar cosa potranno inventarsi? Mah

Dal sito The Disinsider:

If A Live-Action ‘Aladdin’ Sequel Happens It Won’t Be Adapting The Animated Sequels

However, they could be influenced by them.

Disney’s live-action adaptation of Aladdin, proved to be a box office smash for the studio, grossing over $1 billion at the global box office, and received positive reviews for the most part. So it came as no surprise a couple of weeks back when producer Dan Lin teased that a sequel was in early development.

After Lin’s tease, the internet went ablaze hoping that the film would adapt the straight to video sequels The Return of Jafar or Aladdin and the King of Thieves, despite the live-action versions vastly different ending than the animated film. However, while speaking with ScreenRant, Lin shared the film will not adapt the sequels, but will instead be an original story, with some influences to the sequels.

It’s still early days. We never designed the movie to tell the Return of Jafar story, frankly. We were focused on telling the best movie possible. Now, we’re studying Jafar and the Thieves movie that came out, as well. We’re looking at that, but it’s still early days. We’re talking about different storylines. What we’re talking about is not going to be a direct remake of any sequel that’s come out, the same way that our movie was not a direct remake of the first movie. We studied the original movie and saw what worked and what things we wanted to update, and if we’re lucky enough to make another movie, we will do that as well. But it’s not going to be a remake of any specific DVD sequel. It’ll be a new story.

It will be interesting to see if Disney decides to officially move forward on an Aladdin sequel. 2016’s Alice In Wonderland sequel Through The Looking Glass was a huge disappoint amongst fans and critics, and made over $700 million less than the first film. However, all eyes are on Maleficent: Mistress of Evil to be the studios first live-action sequel in the remake/re-imagining era to be a box office success. That said, Aladdin has a large world and many stories they could explore.

Directed by Guy Ritchie, Aladdin is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future. Directed by Guy Ritchie, who brings his singular flair for fast-paced, visceral action to the fictitious port city of Agrabah, the film is written by John August and Ritchie based on Disney’s animated classic “Aladdin.”

Aladdin stars Mena Massoud (Jack Ryan) as Aladdin, Naomi Scott (Power Rangers) as Jasmine, Will Smith (Bad Boys) as the iconic Genie, Marwan Kenzari (The Mummy 2017) as the villainous Jafar, Numan Acar (Prison Break) as Head of the guards Akim, Navid Negahban (Homeland) as The Sultan, Nasim Pedrad (SNL) as Dalia, Billy Magnussen (Into The Woods) as Prince Anders, and Alan Tudyk (Ralph Breaks The Internet) as the voice of Iago.

Dal sito ScreenRant:

Aladdin 2 Won’t Adapt Animated Sequels (But Could Be Influenced By Them)

Aladdin producer Dan Lin says the live-action Aladdin 2 (if it happens) won't adapt the animated film's sequels, but could potentially be influenced by them. Despite the pre-release skepticism towards everything from Guy Ritchie directing to Will Smith following in Robin Williams' footsteps as The Genie, this year's live-action remake of Disney's animated Aladdin earned a suprisingly decent response from critics. General audiences were even happier with the film, which went on to gross over $1 billion at the worldwide box office this summer.

With those kinds of returns, it's little wonder the Mouse House is exploring the idea of a sequel. The animated Aladdin received two direct to video feature followups (titled The Return of Jafar and Aladdin and the King of Thieves), leading some to wonder if the live-action Aladdin 2 could adapt one or both of them. According to Lin, however, if the live-action sequel does happen, it will be an original story.

During our interview with Lin for Aladdin's home video release (the live-action remake and Aladdin Signature Collection hit Blu-ray on September 10), the producer confirmed Aladdin 2 is being considered, but - should it come to pass - won't be directly based on either of the animated Aladdin sequels. He went on to explain how the film could draw inspiration from them, instead:

It’s still early days. We never designed the movie to tell the Return of Jafar story, frankly. We were focused on telling the best movie possible. Now, we’re studying Jafar and the Thieves movie that came out, as well. We’re looking at that, but it’s still early days. We’re talking about different storylines. What we’re talking about is not going to be a direct remake of any sequel that’s come out, the same way that our movie was not a direct remake of the first movie. We studied the original movie and saw what worked and what things we wanted to update, and if we’re lucky enough to make another movie, we will do that as well. But it’s not going to be a remake of any specific DVD sequel. It’ll be a new story.

Assuming Aladdin 2 is eventually made, it's probably for the best that it won't be a direct remake of either Return of Jafar or King of Thieves. While both of those films have their strengths (Aladdin's father, Cassim, being one of them), neither one has a particularly inventive or memorable storyline. Plus, while the live-action Aladdin was able to get away with being a pretty faithful retelling that "fixes" the parts of Disney's animated movie that haven't aged well since 1992 (or were always problematic), audiences might not feel the same about Aladdin 2 being another near-shot-for-shot remake. At the same time, Return of Jafar and King of Thieves are arguably the best direct-to-video animated sequels Disney's ever made, so it would make sense for a live-action Aladdin 2 to take some inspiration from their best elements (similar to how Disney's Star Wars movies have borrowed from the abandoned Expanded Universe or Legends lore).

Disney's previous sequels to its live-action remakes (102 Dalmatians and Alice Through the Looking Glass) didn't fare so well either critically or commercially, so the odds are the studio won't green-light Aladdin 2 unless it's convinced its plot is something that audiences will actually want to see. The Aladdin sequel's chances of happening could also be impacted by the performance of October's Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, which is similarly bettting on audiences wanting to see a followup to Disney's live-action Sleeping Beauty retelling with a brand-new story. Still, after Aladdin's billion dollar performance, it's fair to assume the Mouse House will give Aladdin 2 some serious thought before making the call either way.

Disney's live-action Aladdin and Aladdin Signature Collection become available on Blu-ray starting Tuesday, September 10.

Aladdin e' stato il mio live action preferito dopo Cenrentola ma il seguito e' veramente inutile.
Bene cosi, andiamo avanti con qualcos'altro adesso!

Sicuramente è inutile per noi, non per loro... Poi come faranno con il genio che è diventato umano? Lo fanno tornare genio? Bah.

Comunque loro stanno cercando altri titoli con cui fare del franchising, e non potendo, come logico che sia (anche se la politica Eisner la pensava differentemente) fare un sequel del classico originale, cercano di farlo con i remake live action, sperando che i fan accaniti come noi non se l'abbiano a male come se lo facessero per il classico. Se gli va bene e fanno un buon film è un successo, se andrà male non scalfiranno il classico, ma solo il remake.
