The magic came to life as hosts Scott Weinger (“Aladdin” animated film) and Linda Larkin (“Jasmine” animated film) took D23 Expo attendees on a magic carpet ride with a show-stopping evening of music and dance performances from stars of stage and screen in celebration of the upcoming in-home release of the live-action adaptation of ALADDIN and Walt Disney Animation Studios’ ALADDIN Walt Disney Signature Collection.
