Disney are mad for their live-action remakes lately (not that we're complaining) and it seems that there's another one coming our way. 

After much speculation, there has been an update on whether or not we're getting a new Aladdin movie! 

The great news is that yes, we are! 

It's set to be produced by Dan Lin, who has said that it is very likely to be the next live-action film to hit the cinemas, after Beauty and the Beast.

Ahead of the release of The LEGO Batman Movie, Dan Lin sat down with Collider for a chat and revealed that he will be working alongside Guy Ritchie - who is directing. 

Lin said 'I want to make a diverse version of the movie. Luckily for me Guy Ritchie has the same vision and Disney has the same vision, so we’re not here to make Prince of Persia. We want to make a movie that’s authentic to that world.'

Dan Lin has also said that is has been really hard to find people that are best for the role. He went on to say 'We’re gonna be discovering new people because it’s a real challenge, because not only does an actor have to act, but they really have to have singing chops.'

The original Aladdin movie was released 25 years ago in 1992, and featured the late Robin Williams who played the iconic Genie.
