That's great news! It's a shame Jafar's deleted song isn't included. I understand that it might not have been shot since it was cut early on during development but they could have included it in some form like a clip show with the song overlaid.

I hate that they're having digital-exclusive extras. Hopefully someone will upload those two bonus features online.

I'm so glad Desert Moon is being included, fully shot and edited. It's too bad they couldn't have inserted it into the film as a special extended edition or director's cut. I'm just glad all the deleted scenes are on the disc but I hate that there is not just one, but two digital exclusive features. Of course they saved the Speechless featurette for digital.

I would have liked something on the costumes and set design as well but I guess the making of book exists for that.

Do you mean the part of Arabian Nights that Jafar was supposed to sing, as shown in the B-Roll? Or did he have a whole number planned at one point?

From this interview, it seems to me it was a brand new song integrated into the opening sequence and not just him singing Arabian Nights.

One of the eliminated songs was a solo number for Jafar that Pasek and Paul say “fell away pretty early in development” but would have been part of the extended opening number of “Arabian Nights.”

Oh I see. I always took from that the idea that Jafar was supposed to have a small snippet which he would sing as part of Arabian Nights. Maybe though it was a full-fledged song during the scene where he first unlocks the Cave of Wonders. That would explain why it's just a few seconds in the final film if there was more material there, such as a song.

I hate digital-exclusive extras too. I hope someone uploads "Desert Moon" as well, because I haven't bought any of these live-action remakes on Blu-ray, and I don't think I'll make an exception for Aladdin.

Usually the bonus features for all the new Disney releases tend to get posted pretty quickly on YouTube and I imagine a high-profile deleted song like this will very quickly pop up. Not to mention, people will want to make audio versions of it since the song was missing on the soundtrack.

So happy for both the film itself and the Aladdin property in general, too. In spite of all the changes, I would love if Mulan does as well next year and births its own franchise. :D

I'm glad we'll still be able to hear / see "Desert Moon" on the Blu-ray!

I enjoyed this tweet of Mena Massoud to mark this occasion! I guess this means Aladdin had an even more racially diverse cast than Black Panther.

We’re officially the most ethnically diverse cast to ever lead a film to the billion dollar club. Pretty. Freakin. Cool. everyone who went on this magic carpet ride with us.

Yeah, I guess you're right.

Every time a Disney remake does well at the box office I'm always glad for the property too, because the fact that they're so successful means that people still love the originals. However, in this case I'm also happy for the film itself, because in my opinion it was a decent remake; and especially for the actors, who were all great in it.

Maybe because in Black Panther there were some white actors as well, while here they were all from the Middle East? Anyway, I’m glad this movie continues to prove Hollywood that you don’t need whitewashing to make a film successful.

I'm glad it beat Alice! It's fitting that the top three will be Lion King, BATB, and Aladdin in that order.

All of those wins were deserved except for song. I mean, I liked Zayn, but Ward ruined it. I can’t believe it would beat "Shallow" in particular. Maybe A Star Is Born didn’t appeal as much to teenagers as thirty-something’s and above?

I agree with all the wins although I could see Mena Massoud easily winning best actor as well. Not surprised that Jafar lost and that would likely be the case even if Thanos wasn't on the ballot.

It's official! A sequel is in the works.

Quote:
According to one of the film's producers, the future of Aladdin is already starting to snap into focus. When SYFY WIRE asked Dan Lin about making a sequel, possibly a remake of original direct-to-video follow-up Aladdin: The Return of Jafar, he was optimistic.

"We’d love to," the producer says. "People clearly loved the movie and watched it multiple times and we get lots of fan letters and people asking us to make Return [of] Jafar, and I can just tell you that we’re in early stages right now, but we’re certainly talking about another movie. Like with Aladdin, it will not be a straight remake of any movie that’s been made before, so we’re looking at ‘where’s the best way to go with these characters.’"

And it's all being buoyed by the warm reception the live-action remake has received from moviegoers. "The audience response has really touched us in thinking about where we can go with these stories," he adds, "and we feel like these characters have more adventures in store."

Lin says that getting Ritchie on board for the sequel was a top order of business. "Yeah, I think that’s certainly the hope," Lin explains. "He made this movie for his kids. They loved Aladdin, both the original animated movie and the Broadway musical, and they wanted him to make a movie that they could see. So he certainly loved the experience, I think both he and Will Smith — even before the box office success, they said it was the best filmmaking experience of their lives and they had so much fun doing it. And we’d love to have Guy back and get the team back together. If we do another Aladdin movie, we’d certainly love to have him at the helm."
Source: https://www.syfy.com/syfywire/aladdin-s ... ges-disney

Quote:
Speaking to producer Dan Lin, we asked if the folks over at Disney were having conversations about an Aladdin sequel, and where the franchise could go next.

"We have now," says Lin. "We certainly when we first made the movie wanted to just make the best movie we could and let audiences tell us if they wanted to see more. And I would say resoundingly audiences want to see more. They've watched this movie multiple times. We have lots of fan letters about people who really go back and they bring their friends and bring their family. And so we feel like there's more story to tell. We are going to treat it the same way we treat the original Aladdin movie and not going to do a shot by shot remake of anything that's been done before. We're really looking at what's been done before in the past and the home video, and there's just more story to tell with the underlying materials. So without giving away too much, we are certainly exploring where we can go with this franchise."

Quote:
Well, we asked producer Dan Lin which of the two sequels he'd rather explore going forward, and while he didn't chase that rabbit down the hole, he did say that the next Aladdin would be an original story, while still pulling a bit from the various pieces of source material available.

"If I told you the fans would go crazy," Lin joked. "It's just too early for me to reveal. But just know that we're looking at a lot of different source material and it's not going to be based on one singular source, but we're going to take the best of everything that's been done before and create something fresh and new."
Source: https://comicbook.com/movies/2019/08/13 ... nal-story/

Quote:
Q: Because this film has made over $1 billion now, I have to ask: There are two home video sequels to Aladdin, is there a chance that we could see a live-action version of "The Return of Jafar" or "Aladdin and the King of Thieves"? They're two very underrated Disney sequels.

Dan Lin: I can't talk too much about the sequel just yet, but know that we are hearing fans' desire to see another "Aladdin" movie and feel like there's more stories to tell. I can tell you that, just like with the first "Aladdin" movie, we're not going to make a straight remake. We're looking at what's the right story to tell.

Q: Well, there are some things that you left out of the first movie that maybe could be saved for a sequel such as Jafar turning into a giant snake. I don't know if that was something that was ever discussed to be put in the remake.

Dan Lin: Yeah. I can't say too much. I want to leave a surprise for what we want to do next.

Quote:
Q: Can you confirm that report that's been floating around about the sequel being in development?

Skyler Shuler: Yes.

Q: Millions of films go into development every year. Exaggeration I know but you get my point. How close is it to an actual green light?

Skyler Shuler: Producers confirming there are ideas for a sequel doesn’t mean the studio has given it a go, but it’s likely at this point given the success financially and critically.
