A new 60-minute middle school adaptation of Disney’s Aladdin, based on the 2014 Broadway incarnation of the popular animated film, is now available for licensing from Music Theatre International as part of the Broadway Junior collection.

The updated release of Aladdin Jr. reflects material added for the Broadway production, which restored several songs by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken that were not included in the 1992 animated film, such as “Proud of Your Boy,” “High Adventure,” and “Babkak, Omar, Aladdin, Kassim.” They now appear alongside popular titles from the score, including “A Whole New World,” “Friend Like Me,” and “Prince Ali.”
