Aladdin sequel in ‘early development’ at Disney – report

Disney is reportedly working on a sequel to its live-action remake of Aladdin, following the massive success of the film.  According to Variety, plans for a follow-up film are in "early development" after producers are said to have spent the past six months pondering what direction to take the next movie in. The industry publication reported that writers John Gatins and Andrea Berloff will be returning, while executive producer Ryan Halprin and producers Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich are also said to be back on board for a second film. It's unclear at this stage whether director Guy Ritchie will return to the helm for the sequel, but Variety added producers "hope to bring back stars Will Smith, Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott" – who played the Genie, Aladdin and Princess Jasmine, respectively, in the 2019 film.
And while the original animated Disney movie Aladdin had two straight-to-video sequels, it's believed this movie won't be based on any of those films.
The news comes after star Massoud admitted he was struggling to find his feet in Hollywood, despite the movie grossing over $1 billion.
"I'm kind of tired of staying quiet about it," he told The Daily Beast last year. "I want people to know that it's not always dandelions and roses when you're doing something like Aladdin: 'He must have made millions. He must be getting all these offers'. It's none of those things. I haven't had a single audition since Aladdin came out."

CHECK OUT GEM - FLYAH EXLUSIVE INTERVIEW

GEM is to headline the Los Angeles Power Women Summit in December, bringing this new style of medical-music to the masses. She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system.

Sam Hankins was born to shine! Jazz Musician with a supreme Sound!

We were able to talk to a very talented musician by the name Sam Hankins.  His jazz music is full of soul, with inspiration that can light the path for fans and fellow musicians. Read the details about his journey below!   Interview Questions So when did you become a musician, and would you say it was the ideal path to take? Because I was born into a musical family, becoming a musician was not something I even thought about. It is in my blood. I knew I wanted to make music my career at the early age of 5 years old. I know that being a professional trumpeter and school band director is my calling.   Who are the jazz influences that inspired you? You know, I started off with singing & playing the guitar, but then I saw Louis Armstrong playing the trumpet & that decided it for me. When I spoke to my mom, she said that my uncle had an old trumpet that he used to play and once I had cleaned it out, my fate was sealed. Some of the other jazz influencers were Freddie Hubbard, Miles Da

Michael Coleman Is back with another Anthem!

  WE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH MICHAEL COLEMAN, READ WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY!   Michael Coleman, where are you from and what's it like in your hometown and how did you get the nickname "The Metropolitan Cowboy"?   I was actually born and raised in San Diego, California.  San Diego is just an awesome town although like everywhere else in California, it costs a fortune to live there.  My nickname, “The Metropolitan Cowboy” actually comes from a television project I was doing a few year’s back. I wrote and produced an adult-oriented sketch comedy show and since I was always dressed with a cowboy hat on and looked metrosexual we decided that should be the name of the show and my brand and I have been called that ever since.   How long have you been songwriting and where do you find the inspiration?   I’ve been writing since I was a kid, however I didn’t decide to take it seriously until I had a milestone birthday , I won’t tell you which one and it wa
