Aladdin Live-Action Prequel
Disney is at it again, and this time they’re looking to reboot Aladdin with a live-action prequel.

However it is widely expected that Aladdin will focus on the backstory of the genie before he meets the street urchin. The late Robin Williams made the genie one of the most memorable Disney cartoon characters and it will be interesting to see who will get to step into those shoes to bring that character to life again.
