Producers of Disney's live-action Aladdin are "exploring" a possible sequel. The executives at Disney are having conversations about making a sequel, according to the producer, and they all feel that there certainly is more story to tell.

Two-time Oscar nominee Will Smith (Ali, Men in Black) stars as the Genie in the new film alongside Mena Massoud (Amazon's Jack Ryan) as Aladdin, the hapless but lovable street rat who is smitten with the Sultan's daughter. Now they appear to be willing to let history repeat itself with a sequel to the recent live-action Aladdin remake. Audiences have loved it, sending it to over $1 billion worldwide in box office earnings. Some fans have apparently written letters to Disney to tell them that they loved the movie so much that they got their friends to join when they went to watch it again. We are going to treat it the same way we treat the original Aladdin movie and not going to do a shot by shot remake of anything that's been done before. We're really looking at what's been done before in the past and the home video, and there's just more story to tell with the underlying materials.

Lin's alluding to The Return of Jafar, the direct-to-video sequel to the original animated film, and Aladdin and the King of Thieves, the second sequel in that musical trilogy. "He made this movie for his kids.so he certainly loved the experience, I think both he and Will Smith - even before the box office success, they said it was the best filmmaking experience of their lives and they had so much fun doing it", he said.

The O's also may be without one of their top power hitters Sunday, as Renato Nunez fouled a ball off his left ankle Saturday. Houston absolutely blew past Baltimore on Saturday, picking up a 23-2 win to extend its win streak to eight games.

Between the two animated sequels, there's actually more than enough material to take inspiration from for a live-action follow-up. Lin says they're not planning to make "a straight remake". Due to the massive success in theaters, and the fact that the original "Aladdin" already had sequels, it should come as no surprise to learn that Disney is actively exploring ideas for a sequel, Comic Book reports.

Aladdin opened in theaters on May 24, 2019.
