Morissette, Darren Espanto bring A Whole New World to a new generation
When we talk about Disney’s Aladdin, the first song that always comes to mind is “A Whole New World.” This song has enchanted people of all ages since the world first heard it in the 1992 cartoon. Now, Disney is bringing the classic song to a whole new generation of Pinoys with Darren Espanto and former Speed Magazine CoverGirl Morissette singing the classic tune.
We all know that Filipina legend Lea Salonga gave Princess Jasmine her singing voice in the original animated film. That’s why this award-winning song is really close to the heart of Filipinos. Let us tell you now that Darren Espanto and Morissette’s rendition of this track is shiny, shimmering, and splendid, too. Are you ready to fall in love and sing along?
“Here at Disney Philippines, we collaborate with like-minded brands and individuals to deliver the best experiences to our Filipino fans in a locally relevant manner. Through our localization efforts, we continue to build connections with Filipino fans to bring them even closer to their favorite characters and stories, such as Aladdin,” shared Veronica Cabalinan, country head of The Walt Disney Company Philippines.
Wishes and dreams come true
“It’s truly a dream come true to work with a brand that has brought me so many happy childhood memories and now, to be a part of the childhood experiences of an entirely new generation,” said Darren.
“The fact that the original version was sung by the legendary Lea Salonga, makes being chosen for this project truly an honor,” said Morissette. “It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I wish our rendition of this beautiful song makes people happy.”
