Speaking with Variety at the 2018 GQ Men of the Year Party last night in Beverly Hills, Calif, the 27-year-old actor revealed that the songs are empowering.

“We’ve got all the original music in there, plus a couple of new songs,” Mena shared. “They’re really empowering. I gotta say one is very empowering for women, I think people are going to really, really dig it.”

He added that “the other one is awesome as well. We got the same guys who did ‘La La Land’ and ‘The Greatest Showman,’ we’re in good hands.”

Aladdin will be out in theaters next year.

Naomi Scott Talks Playing Princess Jasmine in 'Aladdin': 'Her Goal Isn't To Fall in Love or Get Married'

Naomi Scott Talks Playing Princess Jasmine in 'Aladdin': 'Her Goal Isn't To Fall in Love or Get Married'

Naomi Scott keeps it classic in a black ensemble while attending The Hollywood Reporter’s Next Gen 2017 Celebration held at Poppy on Wednesday night (November 8) in Los Angeles.

The English actress spoke to the paper about portraying Princess Jasmine in the live action adaption of Aladdin, revealing that she’s stripping the strong royal down and building her back up again.

“I love what Disney is doing at the moment with their princesses – going from animation to live-action and making those animated characters real human beings,” Naomi shared. “Being a female character is also about being a real person, and guess what? [She] can be strong and have fun, but also get it wrong and be emotional.”

She adds that Jasmine will be a “multidimensional woman, and she doesn’t have to just be one thing. So in this movie, you see her go on such a roller coaster, as opposed to her one goal being to fall in love or get married.”

“You really get in this adaptation of the movie that her heart is for her people, and her main objective is what’s best for her kingdom,” Naomi adds. “And you really get a sense that she has those leadership qualities within her.”

Aladdin is expected to hit theaters on May 24, 2019.
