It is February, and that means it is time to start talking about romance. “A Whole New World” is my favorite song from Aladdin. There is something about Disney love songs that is quite different from others. I have been attached to the song since I was a kid.
It is the love song found between Aladdin and Jasmine. They are singing the song on a magic carpet. There is this nature of innocence, magic, and trust. Trust as in- not falling off the carpet. It is truly a lovely song to witness- both on screen and on stage. I love how it is staged- I saw Aladdin a year ago on 9/11.
It seems as if just about every single couple I have found in musicals are young couples. They also seem to be in love for the first time- the young couples.
