Live-Action Prequel In The Works For Disney’s ‘Aladdin’

Aladdin---Jasmin-aladdin-613149_1181_815

If you’ve ever wondered how Genie ended up in that lamp, you’re about to find out. Disney is in the very early stages of developing Genies, a live-action comedy adventure film centered around, you guessed it, Genie.

If for some reason you have no idea what the original plot was (I’m judging you), the classic 1992 film revolves around Aladdin, an Arab street rat who discovers a lamp that houses a magical blue Genie who grants him three wishes. He battles the evil sorcerer Jafar and saves all of his friends as well as his love interest, Princess Jasmine. In the end, Aladdin uses his third and final wish to grant Genie his freedom.

Aside from learning I could potentially win free Chipotle for year, this is probably the greatest news I’ve heard all week. Happy #TBT! My only question is how will they do this without Robin Williams?
