I closed out Day 2 of the 2019 D23 Expo at the The Musical Journey of Aladdin in the Arena. This presentation was hosted by Scott Weinger, the original speaking voice of the animated Aladdin. He was joined on stage by several other Aladdins, including the singing voice, Brad Kane, Clinton Greenspan from the Broadway national tour and Mena Massoud from the new live-action Aladdin. Jasmine was represented by Linda Larkin, the speaking voice of Jasmine and Deedee Magno Hall who was Jasmine at the Disney California Adventure production. From the live action Aladdin, Choreographer Jamal Sims performed “A Friend Like Me”. Regina Belle and Norm Lewis closed out the evening with a performance of “A Whole New World”. In addition to live performances of some of the songs, the actors shared some of their memories of auditioning and playing their parts. There were also several featurettes shown that look to be bonus features on the home video releases of both the original and live-action films.
Photos and video were not allowed during the performance. Below are a video and photos Disney released after the presentation:
