An Aladdin spin-off is in the works starring Billy Magnussen. 

Multiple outlets confirm that Disney+ is developing a spin-off feature focused on the character played by Magnussen in the recent live-action movie. 

Let us just remind you — Magnussen played Prince Anders who was vying for Princess Jasmine’s (Naomi Scott) hand in marriage. 

Disney+ has hired Jordan Dunn and Michael Kvamme to pen a script for the offshoot film in which Magnussen would reprise the part of Prince Anders. Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, who produced Aladdin, are back in the same capacity via their banner Rideback, Rideback’s Ryan Halprin will executive produce.
