Disney’s Aladdin JR.is based on the 1992 Academy-Award®-winning film and the 2014 hit Broadway show. Aladdin and his three friends, Babkak, Omar and Kassim, are down on their luck until Aladdin discovers a magic lamp and a wisecracking Genie who has the power to grant three wishes. Wanting to win the heart of Princess Jasmine, Aladdin embarks on a magic carpet ride adventure where he faces the evil sorcerer, Jafar and ultimately, himself. With favorite songs such as “Friend Like Me,” “One Jump Ahead” and “Prince Ali,” along with original songs and thrills, this new adaptation of the beloved story will open up “A Whole New World” for the entire family!
