It would seem that no movie is safe from the animated to live action trend as Disney is yet again developing another live action film based on one of their hot animated properties.

The studio is developing Genies which will be a live action prequel to Aladdin and is said to be about the realm of Genies and will reveal how Aladdin's Genie ends up enslaved in the lamp. The film is currently being written by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift.

Although the project is only in early development, the plan for the future is to lead into a live action Aladdin film.

I'm not exactly sure if anyone was asking for this project but I'm not surprised as Disney has had plenty of success with their live action offerings so far, Cinderella proved to be a huge success for them.
