It appears that Disney+ will be doctoring up television programs for its live-action properties, as Billy Magnussen will be reprising his role as Prince Anders in a series about the Middle Eastern royalty according to The Hollywood Reporter.
This will mark the first time the studio has developed a spinoff to one of its live-action remakes. Disney has already gotten to work on this project hiring Jordan Dunn and Michael Kvamme to scribe the script. The series centers around Anders but has not been confirmed as a sequel or a prequel to this year’s box office hit Aladdin, as the studio is still in the planning stages for the project.
Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, who were primarily responsible for Aladdin‘s production, return to the set under their Rideback banner with Ryan Halprin serving as an executive producer. Magnussen was mainly responsible for pushing the inception of this series after presenting the idea to Aladdin’s production team. Dunn and Kvamme have been rather busy as of lately and have a plethora of comedy projects in the work, including a film entitled Operation Prince of Freedom, which involves a rather politically incorrect celebrity, the Taliban and illegal immigration. More on this as it develops.
