GOSSIP: Disney's Aladdin to replace Miss Saigon at the Prince Edward Theatre?

According to the Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye, Disney's Aladdin will open at the Prince Edward Theatre in the summer of 2016, replacing Miss Saigon.

Please note nothing has been officially confirmed by producers as of yet. Miss Saigon is expected to close in London and transfer to Broadway. More soon...

Aladdin was originally rumoured to be opening at the Prince Edward; however, following Miss Saigon's opening it was suggested Disney's show would instead open at the London Palladium or Dominion Theatre.

The show is directed and choreographed by The Book of Mormon's Casey Nicholaw and composed by Tony Award winner Alan Menken. It features lyrics penned by Howard Ashman and Tony Award winner Tim Rice, with book and additional lyrics by Chad Beguelin. The production opened on Broadway in March 2014, click here to read West End Frame's 3* review.
