The First Ever Version Of This Disney Classic Will Give You A New Fantastic Point of View

Aladdin might very well be one of the best Disney movies out there. The songs, the story, Robin Williams... Really just everything about this movie is absolute perfection. The most famous songs in the film is "A Whole New World" for obvious reasons. It's a beautiful love song that has exploration and adventure all while managing to do a bunch of character development in the span of a two minute song.

It's always been one of my favorites, and probably one of the most fun to sing along with when you re-watch the movie for the thousandth time. Something about Disney movies make the characters feel so real when you're a kid, but as an adult you start to wonder about the voices behind the scenes.

Disney movies back in the day would usually use a different speaking voice for characters than the singing voice. So while none other than DJ Tanner's boyfriend, Steve (AKA - Scott Weinger) would speak for Aladdin, Brad Kane was actually the voice behind the music. Linda Larkin voiced Jasmine, but Lea Salonga sang the beautiful song.

The actors who sang this Oscar winning song together seemed to immediately knock it out of the park. Disney filmed their first recording session and it's really easy to see how that song became a classic. The first run through of the song already sounds fantastic, with both of their voices mixing together to create the sweetest song in any Disney movie.

You have to watch this clip. It's incredible to see how they sound and how cute they are while they do it.

Now that we know that the new live action Aladdin will be a musical we can only hope that it will be at least half as good at the original. No one will be able to belt this song out the same as these two!

Years later they reconnected for the anniversary and once again reminded us why they are the best of the best. You can watch the video here to relive the memory again.

Share if you still love this song after all these years!

12 Songs You Heard At Every Party In The 80s That You're Definitely Still Obsessed With

Music from the 80s has stood the test of time, and I'm not saying that because I grew up in that decade. The lyrics were catchy, relatable, and upbeat. They also seemed to have choreography to go with it, and we knew how to dance to them all. We definitely had our priorities straight. For example, which scenario would do you better for the long term: Receiving a perfect grade on one math test or knowing how to moonwalk for the rest of your life. The answer is intuitive.

'Top Gun' Sequel Gets A Release Date And A Title And We're On The Highway To The Danger Zone

Tom Cruise was easily the definitive star of the 80s and 90s. He had a lot of huge hits, but few were as amazing and iconic as Top Gun. Watching them fly their planes and play beach volleyball was super entertaining, and because it's 2018, of course they are planning to bring it back in some way. Nothing is safe from a reboot, remake or sequel, especially if Tom Cruise has a say. The Mission Impossible franchise is on its sixth movie now, with Cruise happily performing his own stunts and continuing to defy danger, but apparently that's not enough.


You Can Live In The '10 Things I Hate About You' House And It's Actually Amazing

We all remember watching 10 Things I Hate About You in the late 90s and becoming completely obsessed with Kat Statford's rebel style, or Bianca's collection of cute sundresses. The Stratford sisters were iconic for us, and we can all admit that part of the reason was their absolutely epic house. So many moments in that movie took place in that home, and it just felt like the most iconic and idyllic place for this story to unfold. I don't know how many times I thought that it would be comfortable to sit on the porch of my house and
