A whole new world of music awaits fans with Disney's live-action "Aladdin."
It was already revealed that "La La Land" and "The Greatest Showman" songwriting duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul would be working with legend Alan Menken on two new songs for the movie.
Variety just got scoop on the two new songs:
• One is a "sweet" duet for Aladdin (Mena Massoud) and Jasmine (Naomi Scott).
• Another is "a new song for Jasmine," Paul told Variety. "Alan wrote a beautiful piece of music and [Naomi Scott] is incredible.”
• As a bonus, the songwriters also got to write a new verse for the original 1992 film’s "Arabian Nights" song.
"Aladdin" started filming last summer, and Will Smith (who voices the Genie) shared the first cast photo in September. Filming wrapped for the cast in late January 2018, with the stars tweeting about their "incredible journey" making the movie.
Fans will see and hear the results when "Aladdin" is released in theaters on May 24, 2019.
