According to reports, Jonathan Eirich has already signed on as executive producer and John August has written the script for the remake.
It is also said that the film will reportedly feature many of the musical elements from the 1992 animated movie. However, the moviemakers are still working on how to approach the Genie character in the film. Disney is trying to find that perfect fit since the original voice of the Genie was the late Robin Williams.
The original movie was the highest grossing film of 1992 with $504.1 million in earnings worldwide. It picked up two Academy Awards for Best Score and Best Song (A Whole New World).
The film was also adapted into a Broadway show in 2014.
The new movie is the latest project in a long line of Disney live action adaptations with studio bosses working on a Beauty and the Beast film, which stars Emma Watson, Luke Evans, Dan Stevens, and Ian MCKellen.
Moviemakers are also launching a global casting search to find an actress to play Mulan in a new film. The studio bosses have confirmed they are making a live-action retelling of the beloved animated movie.
Studio bosses are hoping to release the project in November, 2018.
In addition, Jon Favreau is also directing a new version of The Lion King, as well as a sequel to this year’s (16) The Jungle Book.
