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
