We’re getting closer and closer to the release of Aladdin, so it’s only right that Disney has dropped the first musical number from the film on the web. The live-action remake stars Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Jasmine and Will Smith as the Genie.

The track, “Prince Ali,” which has been a fan-favorite since the original animated flick’s release, gets a makeover from Smith. Robin Williams performed it in the original film as the Genie.

The clip has received a mixed response on social media:


Disney’s official description reads: A thrilling and vibrant live-action adaptation of Disney’s animated classic, “Aladdin” is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future. Directed by Guy Ritchie, who brings his singular flair for fast-paced, visceral action to the fictitious port city of Agrabah, “Aladdin” is written by John August and Ritchie based on Disney’s “Aladdin.” 

The film is in theaters May 24.
