We’re seeing a whole new world, thanks to Zayn and Zhavia Ward.
Later this month, Disney will be releasing the live-action remake of its 1992 classic, Aladdin.
Mena Massoud will be taking on the role of the beloved street urchin, while Naomi Scott will fill the shoes of Princess Jasmine, and Will Smith will bring the Genie to life.
In anticipation for the new film, we have our first taste of the soundtrack.
Just like Ariana Grande and John Legend did a do-over of the Beauty and the Beast titular theme song, Zayn and Zhavia are now lending their pipes to “A Whole New World.”
Unbelievable sights and indescribable feelings feature in the video, which was shot in Manhattan.
“The selection of artists, producer, and tonal direction was critical for the success of updating a classic song like this,” said President of Walt Disney Studio’s Music & Soundtracks, Mitchell Leib. “Zayn’s vocals are like no other and his artistic imprint immediately brought a contemporary and diverse presence.”
And it doesn’t hurt that he looks quite a lot like Aladdin!
We’ll get a new fantastic point of view when Aladdin opens on the 24th of May.
