Our Review:
Aladdin is one of those Disney classics that will live on forever. We were excited to get this Blu-ray diamond edition! My hubby and I had a great date night watching Aladdin together. It was so fun seeing this movie again. I know our grand kids are going to love this movie as much as we do. It was funny when Aladdin first sets eyes on Jasmine. He is smitten at her beauty. Abu, his monkey, tries to get his attention by waving his hands in from of Aladdin's eyes saying hello. He is such a cute monkey. I wish I had him as my pet.

Robin Williams is the best Genie ever! He is so funny in this film. We love when he sings the song "Friend Like Me". We were so mad when Jafar steals the lamp and starts making wishes to be the most powerful sorcerer in the world. Then Aladdin saves the day by tricking Jafar into wanting to be the most powerful Genie and then Aladdin traps him in a lamp. That was brilliant. It was so nice to see that Aladdin kept his promise to the Genie and requested his last wish to set the Genie free. This is such a fun movie that everyone will enjoy.

Don't miss the fantastic special features on the Blu-ray. We thought it was cool that they did a tribute to Robin Williams in The Genie outtakes.

Watch the great clip below of Brad Kane discussing his experiences recording the memorable songs that we all know and love from Aladdin...
