There’s something about Disney animated movies in general that we all love, but there are a few that stand out as extra special and Disney’s Aladdin has always felt that way to me.
The storytelling is mesmerizing……the romance, the relationship between father/daughter, the humor!
I can say that I can’t really think about Aladdin without smiling and thinking of Genie….
Genie, voiced by the much-loved and much-missed Robin Williams. I remember spending some time at Disney’s Animation Academy and taking lessons on how to draw Genie from an animator. Then…..I had to run over and show Genie at Disneyland! (That red skirt I’m wearing is because I just participated in a runDisney event)!
Aladdin is extra special and there’s big news! For the first time on Blu-ray and Digital HD on September 29th and on Blu-ray/DVD on October 13, Aladdin: Diamond Edition is available.
Soar away on a magic carpet ride of nonstop laughs and thrills in one of the most spectacular adventures on all time! Now meticulously restored and enhanced – experience the wonders of “Aladdin” like never before
In the heat of an enchanted city, a commoner named Aladdin and his mischievous monkey Abu battle to save the free-spirited Princess Jasmine from the schemes of the evil sorcerer Jafar. Aladdin’s whole life changes with one rub of a magic lamp as a fun-loving, shape-shifting Genie appears and grants him three wishes, setting him on an incredible journey of discovery.
But let’s talk about the music…….
Yes – Academy Award®-winning music (1992: Best Music, Original Song, “A Whole New World,” Original Score)!
While I’ve seen snippets here and there over the years since it was originally released, it’s been a long time since I’ve watched Aladdin in full….and I cannot wait! Family Movie Night is here!
