James Corden Grants Your Want With an Aladdin Crosswalk Musical

James Corden is about to present you to a complete new world…of musical theater!

To have a good time the live-action remake of Aladdin, the host carried out a “Crosswalk the Musical” model of the Disney basic for Thursday’s episode of The Late Late Present.

For many who have not seen Corden’s crosswalk productions earlier than, the reveals contain the TV star and his solid dressing up in costume and performing full track and dance routines in the course of a Los Angeles intersection.

Fortunately, Corden was in a position to pull in some huge names for this efficiency. Naomi Scott and Mena Massoud—who play Princess Jasmine and Aladdin within the new movie, respectively—agreed to reprise their roles for the spectacular. And whereas Corden had his coronary heart set on taking part in the genie, he reluctantly agreed to play Abu the Monkey as soon as Will Smith confirmed up on set.

“Aladdin is, in some ways, form of this one monkey’s journey from the backstreets of Agrabah to the best seats of energy,” Corden stated, increase his position as Aladdin’s sidekick. “In reality if you consider the nice stage roles, it is Hamlet, Willy Loman and Abu—the Monkey in Aladdin.”

The solid carried out a lot of the movie’s basic numbers. As an example, they sang “Pal Like Me” with full choreography and blazes of fireplace, in addition to “Prince Ali” with large elephant collectible figurines.

However because the manufacturing continued, Corden’s jealousy started to construct. After he walked off set, Smith was in a position to give him a pep speak and produce him again for “A Entire New World,” which featured a experience on a building raise versus a magic carpet.
