No points for guessing that all those watching the remake of Aladdin will be singing along to all the song.

But audiences will also have to learn some new lyrics.

Mena Massoud, who plays the titular character, has revealed that the upcoming live-action version of the tale from Agraba will feature not one, but two new songs!

It is hardly surprising when you realize that the film, helmed by Guy Ritchie, has hired Oscar-winning composing duo from La La Land, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

“We’ve got all the original music in there, plus a couple of new songs,” Mena told Variety. “They’re really empowering. I gotta say one is very empowering for women, I think people are going to really, really dig it. The other one is awesome as well. We got the same guys who did La La Land and The Greatest Showman, we’re in good hands.”

It’s gonna be a whole new world when Aladdin comes out on the 24th of May, 2019.
