Guy Ritchie’s remake of Aladdin was met with mostly positive reviews and earned over $1 billion on the box office, so it doesn’t come as a surprise to hear that Disney is exploring the possibility of continuing this story.

Disney producer Dan Lin discussed studio’s plans for the sequel with Insider. Nothing is official just yet, but judging by his words, the studio is open to the possibility because they believe that Jasmine and Aladdin’s story is far from over.

“We are hearing fans’ desires to see another Aladdin movie and feel like there’s more story to tell. I can tell you, that just like with the first Aladdin movie, we’re not going to make just a straight remake. We’re looking at what’s the right story to tell,” explained Lin.

The live-action remake of Aladdin came out on May 24th, and it starred Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott, and Will Smith. They still haven’t signed on for a sequel, but it’s safe to expect they’ll return to their respective roles if Disney decides to proceed with this project.
