Soundtrack Review: “Aladdin” (2019 Live Action Version)

Eleased ahead of the film’s theatrical release on May 24th. The film features five songs from the animated classic, on brand-new tune written for this version, plus several reprises. While the songs in this adaptation are best served with the visuals from the film, there are reasons to revisit them here, along with new score by Alan Menken.

All of the classic songs receive some updates in this release, with orchestrations that sound more rich and full than their animated counterpart. They also employ more Middle Eastern instruments than the 1992 approach attempted. It’s a shame that instrumental tracks weren’t included for all of the songs because the orchestrations are masterful.

The songs also sound more modern, particularly in the way that percussion is applied, creating some modern pop vibes. The best example is “One Jump Ahead,” which even changes the spacing between notes and ends up sounding very different from the original. “A Whole New World” also has some unique changes, becoming more acoustic than the original in its transition to live action.

I'm looking for the Beauty and the Beast Broadway Soundtrack?

I can't find the Broadway soundtrack of Beauty and the Beast anywhere online that is free to download. Would anybody happen to know where to find that? It would be a great help if you could.


Disney does not give their stuff away, nor should they. Please support the artists.

Where can I find the Australia Beauty and the Beast soundtrack, if there is one?

I just found out that in the production of Beauty and the Beast in Australia, Hugh Jackman was Gaston. My mom's birthday is in a few weeks and I know she would love it :-) Where can I find the cd or anything like that?


You probably won't find an Aussie soundtrack, usually they only sell the US soundtracks to musicals. Either way, I'm betting you would find the soundtrack of Beauty and the Beast at www.middle8.com, which is an Aussie run store for musical theatre.
