Genie from ‘Aladdin’ is Getting a Live-Action Prequel

Just last week, Disney announced a live-action Prince Charming movie is in the works, but now Prince Charming and his brother aren’t the only ones getting a prequel! Turns out Genie from Aladdin is too!

THR reports the movie is titled Genies, a live-action comedy adventure that will take place before the Disney animated classic. Freddy vs. Jason screenwriters, Damian Shannon and Mark Swift are writing the script, which will focus on the realm of the genies, and explain how Genie became enslaved in the lamp.  As much as I’ve been hoping for a live-action Aladdin reboot; this one will do for now, because the long term plan is to have Genies lead into a live-action Aladdin movie.

Who should play Genie?

Jim Carey proposed for Genie

Jim Carrey proposed for Genie

We think Jim Carrey would be perfect for the role of Genie! It’s been a while since we’ve seen him in a movie, and his slapstick comedy and range makes him a suitable candidate. Support Jim Carrey Here! >>
