It looks like Aladdin and his magic carpet is going to be flying into Broadway! The prince of thieves could soon be heading to a whole new world away from the animated film. According to a few sources Alan Menken told the attendees at the Destination D event that Aladdin is being prepared for a Broadway run. Disney had major success with Aladdin back in the early 1990’s and it still is a family favorite even after all these years. If the Broadway version opens soon, we will have a situation where there is a theme park version, Disney Cruise Line version, and Broadway version of a show at the same time and this has never been done before. This is your chance to audition for what it seems like one of the most popular Broadway shows up to date.
Based on the smash-hit 1992 animated film, Aladdin is the story of a street urchin who uses the help of a magic lamp Genie to win the heart of Princess Jasmine. Production notes promise illusions, camels, magic flying carpets, giant water effects and a live interactive 3DS movie created specifically for the production. If Aladdin does make it on to Broadway, it would be following the lead several Disney animated films that have made a successful transition to the stage. They include, Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King. Lets all hope that Disney confirms the news very soon and we don’t have to wait too long for what is going to be a sure success.
