More Details on New Songs in Disney's Live Action ALADDIN (2019)

Hot off the heels of the live action Mulan making a small, arbitrary change from the original 1998 movie, have some more news about a Live Action Disney Remake!

Justin Paul and Benj Pasek from *sigh* La La Land and Greatest Showman song-writing fame are writing new songs for *sigh* Guy Ritchie's Aladdin remake.

Such change are

  • A New song for Jasmine (Though Disney afficionados will know that she does have an 'I Want' song on some direct to home video storybook thing in the 90's, but that doesn't count).

  • A duet between Aladdin and Jasmine that is apparently not "A Whole New World".

  • A new lyric in the opening song "Arabian Nights".

Aladdin is set to be released May 24th, 2019.
