ALADDIN is directed by Guy Ritchie from a screenplay by John August based on the 1992 animated film ALADDIN and stories from “One Thousand and One Nights.” The producer is Dan Lin with Golden Globe® winner Marc Platt, Jonathan Eirich and Kevin De La Noy serving as executive producers. 

Composer Alan Menken provides the score, which includes new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and lyricists Howard Ashman and Tim Rice as well as two new songs written by  Menken and songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
