Live Action Prequel film about Genie in the works at Disney

I sort of saw this one coming.  Disney hired a team of writers to pen a live action prequel movie based on Genie from the beloved 1992 animated film.

Called Genie the fillm is written by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift and produced by  Tripp Vinson. The film is said to focus on the genies and how Aladdin’s genie came trapped inside the lamp. If succesful a out right remake of the Aladddin film itself is an option. Personally I’m not excted at this sequal/prequel or remakes of classic 2d animated films. I rather see Disney to make new fresh films be either live action or (2d) animated.

Genie’s Funniest Moments

After all those years Genie isn’t as funny as he used to be back in the day I’m more an Iago humor fan now I’m older. Still at least two moments in the feature film always keep me chuckling. The sheepish scene, a 17 year old boy tricks a millennia old genie who (probably) had a dozen masters before so he should know the drill. I don’t believe Aladdin is the first to trick big blue in a freebie wish.
The second scene is just weird Genie humor, mode of transportation. Watch out they spit!
