The movie has, unsurprisingly, beaten all expectations at the box office to become a bona fide Disney hit. The story follows Aladdin, an Arabian street urchin who gets caught up with a princess, an evil Royal Vizier, and a magic lamp that can grant him three wishes. A story about love, acceptance, and power; it hits every emotion. Winning a pair of Academy Awards, it was the highest-grossing animated film of all time until The Ling King debuted.
Menken, Pasek and Paul also wrote new lyrics for the original film's song " Arabian Nights ",  which was reworked as a musical number that introduces the film's story and characters to the audience. Pasek and Paul wrote the lyrics for a solo for the character of Jasmine,   titled "Speechless",   which Paul called "a beautiful piece of music", praising Scott's singing as "incredible". Jafar has seized power as her father stands by helpless, and she finally has the strength to tell him what she envisions for her future". Pasek felt that "it made a lot of sense for this really strong woman that so many girls have grown up loving to talk about reclaiming her own power". The film also features two re-worked versions of the song " Friend Like Me " from the original film; one performed in the film by Smith as the Genie, which was described as "a rap with melody";  and an end-credits version performed by Smith and DJ Khaled , with Khaled also producing the end-credits version. All music is composed by Alan Menken .
