WATCH: Will Smith Performs 'Prince Ali' Remake In Live-Action 'Aladdin' Film

We’re getting closer and closer to the release of Aladdin, so it’s only right that Disney has dropped the first musical number from the film on the web. The live-action remake stars Mena Massoud as Aladdin, Naomi Scott as Jasmine and Will Smith as the Genie.

The track, “Prince Ali,” which has been a fan-favorite since the original animated flick’s release, gets a makeover from Smith. Robin Williams performed it in the original film as the Genie.

The clip has received a mixed response on social media:

 

Disney’s official description reads: A thrilling and vibrant live-action adaptation of Disney’s animated classic, “Aladdin” is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future. Directed by Guy Ritchie, who brings his singular flair for fast-paced, visceral action to the fictitious port city of Agrabah, “Aladdin” is written by John August and Ritchie based on Disney’s “Aladdin.” 

The film is in theaters May 24.
