ABOUT DISNEY'S ALADDIN
A thrilling and vibrant live-action adaptation of Disney's 1992 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 ("Sherlock Holmes," "The Man from U.N.C.L.E."), who brings his singular flair for fast-paced, visceral action to the fictitious port city of Agrabah in Arabia, "Aladdin" is written by John August ("Dark Shadows," "Big Fish") and Ritchie based on Disney's "Aladdin." The film stars Will Smith ("Ali," "Men in Black") as the larger-than-life Genie; Mena Massoud ("Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan") as the charming scoundrel Aladdin; Naomi Scott ("Power Rangers") as Jasmine, the beautiful, self-determined princess; Marwan Kenzari ("Murder on the Orient Express") as Jafar, the powerful sorcerer; Navid Negahban ("Legion") as the Sultan concerned with his daughter's future; Nasim Pedrad ("Saturday Night Live") as Dalia, Princess Jasmine's free-spirited best friend and confidante; Billy Magnussen ("Into the Woods") as the handsome and arrogant suitor Prince Anders; and Numan Acar ("The Great Wall") as Hakim, Jafar's right-hand man and captain of the palace guards.

"Aladdin" is produced by Dan Lin, p.g.a., ("Sherlock Holmes") and Jonathan Eirich, p.g.a., ("Death Note") with Oscar® nominee and Golden Globe® winner Marc Platt ("La La Land") and Kevin De La Noy ("The Dark Knight Rises") serving as executive producers. Eight-time Academy Award®-winning composer Alan Menken ("Beauty and the Beast," "The Little Mermaid") provides the score, which includes new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Oscar-winning lyricists Howard Ashman ("Little Shop of Horrors") and Tim Rice ("The Lion King") and includes two new songs written by Menken and Oscar and Tony Award®-winning songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul ("La La Land," "Dear Evan Hansen"). The film, which was shot on practical stages in London and on location amidst the stunning desert vistas of Jordan, has a talented creative team helping to bring Agrabah to life, including: director of photography Alan Stewart ("The Commuter"), production designer Gemma Jackson ("Game of Thrones") and costume designer Michael Wilkinson ("American Hustle").

The 1992 animated film starred Robin Williams and featured such memorable songs as the Oscar®-winning "A Whole New World" and "Friend like Me." The film grossed more than $502 million at the global box office, which led to successful stage productions on Broadway and abroad as well as a North American touring company.

ABOUT THE EL CAPITAN THEATRE
Declared a Historic Cultural Monument by the City of Los Angeles and restored to showcase its original lavish architecture, The El Capitan Theatre has been since 1991 an exclusive first run theatre, equipped with state-of-the-art technology, for The Walt Disney Studios. The theatre also hosts live stage shows, world premieres, special events, and screenings of classic Disney films.

In the 1920s, real estate developer Charles Toberman and Sid Grauman built the Egyptian, Chinese and El Capitan theatres. Los Angeles based Stiles O. Clements designed the elaborate cast-concrete Spanish Colonial style exterior; San Francisco architect G. Albert Lansburgh, known for his design of over 50 West Coast theatres and luxury cinema houses, designed the lavish East Indian inspired interior. Originally a legitimate theatre (over 120 plays and musicals were staged), it was converted for film for the world premiere of Orson Welles' "Citizen Kane." The theatre then was renovated, reopening in March 1942 as the Hollywood Paramount, a streamlined "art moderne" first run movie house.

In 1989, the Walt Disney Company joined forces with Pacific Theatres and launched a two-year, museum quality restoration of The El Capitan, led by renowned theatre designer Joseph J. Musil. Musil with the supervision of the National Park Service's Department of the Interior, and guidance from conservator Martin Weil and architect Ed Fields, achieved the goal recreating the original 1926 look and feel -- including original design elements such as the ornate plasterwork found hidden behind walls and the opera boxes in the main auditorium.
