Disney To Stream Alladin’s Spin Focused On Prince Anders Character; Deets Inside
Disney Is Developing A Spinoff Of Its Live-action “Aladdin' With Billy Magnussen Reprising His Prince Anders Character.
Disney is developing a spinoff of its live-action “Aladdin” with Billy Magnussen reprising his Prince Anders character.
The unnamed project is in early development for the studio’s recently launched Disney Plus streaming service. Disney has hired Jordan Dunn and Michael Kvamme to write a script centered on the haughty Prince Anders, one of Princess Jasmine’s suitors.
Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, producers of “Aladdin,” are producing the spinoff through their Rideback company. Rideback’s Ryan Halprin will executive produce.
“Aladdin” became the 41st title to cross the $1 billion worldwide box office mark in July. It opened with $117 million over the Memorial Day holiday and easily outperformed Disney’s pre-opening domestic projections.
The news comes a few days after Aaddin lead actor Mena Massoud revealed he hasn't had "a single audition" since the release of the blockbuster Disney reboot. The Canadian actor beat out more than 2,000 actors to portray the live-action
Aladdin in the Guy Ritchie-directed film, which has grossed more than a billion dollars worldwide since its release in May.
Meanwhile, Magnussen’s will next be seen in the James Bond movie “No Time to Die.”
