'Aladdin' Live-Action Prequel in the Works at Disney!

Are you ready to get reacquainted with Prince Ali of Ababwa?

According to THR, Disney is creating a live-action prequel to the 1992 classic movie Aladdin.

The film is set to be written by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift, and will likely be titled Genie. 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.

WHO DO YOU THINK should be cast in the new Aladdin prequel? Tell us below!

    If they finally decide to cast a POC obviously Avan Jogia, he seems that he can take on big roles, his latest being King Tut. Will be the good choice.
