Disney Pictures is continuing its plans to deliver big-budget live-action spins on its classic animated features. The latest one in the works is “Genies,” a live-action comedy adventure prequel to the 1992 film “Aladdin”.
Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (“Friday the 13th,” “Baywatch”) are penning while Tripp Vinson is producing the film which will focus on the realm of the Genies and reveal how Aladdin’s Genie ended up enslaved in the lamp.
The film is only in the early stages of development, but the apparent long-term plan is to have the project lead into a full live-action “Aladdin” movie.
