It’s already been revealed that a sequel is in early stages, and what it could entail.

The Aladdin star recently shared his funny idea for a follow up to the first film.

“I don’t think it will be Return of Jafar, but I think there’s a possibility of a sequel, yes,” Mena told ET, adding, “I think they should do one just about the animals. Like, Abu, Raja, Iago and the carpet all get together. Throwing it out there!”

We are so bummed that this scene from Aladdin was cut from the final version of the movie, because it’s so good!

Composer Alan Menken explains that the scene was cut for time before explaining what the song was about.

“It’s the moment Aladdin and Jasmine first meet, and they realize this is a song that they both knew growing up,” he says. “But, they both sing that song separately from each other in the movie. It was a beautiful moment.”

An Aladdin sequel is already in talks to happen!

The Disney live action remake, starring Naomi Scott, Mena Massoud and Will Smith, was a major box office hit and producer Dan Lin is opening up about the possibility of a sequel.

“People clearly loved the movie and watched it multiple times and we get lots of fan letters and people asking us to make Return [of] Jafar; and I can just tell you that we’re in early stages right now, but we’re certainly talking about another movie,” he told SyFyWire.

“Like with Aladdin, it will not be a straight remake of any movie that’s been made before, so we’re looking at ‘where’s the best way to go with these characters?’” Dan added. “The audience response has really touched us in thinking about where we can go with these stories, and we feel like these characters have more adventures in store.”
