Disney+ Developing “Aladdin” Spinoff Based on Prince Anders

Disney+ is developing a spinoff for Aladdin— but it’s not about a character you would think of.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney has hired Jordan Dunn and Michael Kvamme to pen a script for an Aladdin offshoot centered on Prince Anders, the scene-stealing character played by Billy Magnussen in the live-action film.

The project is not a sequel to Aladdin, which is also in the planning stages at the studio.

Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, who produced the billion dollar-grossing Aladdin, are back in the producers’ seat via Rideback, their banner. Rideback’s Ryan Halprin will executive produce.

Overdressed and on the dim side, Anders was royalty from a fictional kingdom named Skanland and a suitor for the hand of Princess Jasmine. While only in less than a handful of scenes, as played by Magnussen with a mix of goofiness and haughty idiocy, the character, who was an original creation for the live-action remake, made a fun impression on audiences.
