Aladdin Jr. is both the story and music in this truncated version closely follow the original film. Songs from the Disney film include “Arabian Nights,” “One Jump Ahead, “Friend Like Me,” “Prince Ali,” and “A Whole New World,” as well as the song “Why Me” which is sung by Jafar and Iago. It was originally written for the Disney film, but it was not included in it. The songs are somewhat different in Aladdin Jr. For example, the “One Jump Ahead” reprise is sung by Jasmine, not Aladdin.

There are additional changes in the musical. For instance, three princes come try for Jasmine’s hand in marriage. The additional narrators reprise “Arabian Nights” several times throughout the musical in order to more quickly further the plot as well as have “red carpet interviews” with several characters at the beginning of the show.
