Aladdin reunion: Original duo Peabo Bryson & Regina Belle sing ‘A Whole New World’
In celebration of the release of the live-action adaptation of Aladdin on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital, Disney has shared a special reunion between Peabo Bryson and Regina Belle, the original duo who sang the single version of “A Whole New World,” which won an Oscar and a Grammy Award in 1993. You can check out the video now in the player below and watch the singers once again bring the magic to life during the Broadway production!
Two-time Oscar nominee Will Smith (Ali, Men in Black) stars as the Genie in the new film alongside Mena Massoud (Amazon’s Jack Ryan) as the titular thief, the hapless but lovable street rat who is smitten with the Sultan’s daughter. Naomi Scott (Power Rangers) stars as Princess Jasmine, the Sultan’s beautiful daughter who wants to have a say in how she lives her life with Marwan Kenzari (Murder on the Orient Express) as Jafar, an evil sorcerer who devises a nefarious plot to unseat the Sultan and rule Agrabah himself.
Aladdin also stars Navid Negahban (Homeland) as the Sultan, Nasim Pedrad (Saturday Night Live) as Dalia, Billy Magnussen (Into the Woods) as Prince Anders, and Numan Acar (Homeland) as Hakim, Jafar’s right-hand man and head of the palace guards. In addition, Wreck-It Ralph‘s Alan Tudyk has also signed on to voice Jafar’s iconic parrot sidekick Iago.
The film is currently available on Digital, Blu-ray, and DVD.
