Product Description

Amazon.ca

Disney's 1992 animated feature is a triumph of wit and skill. The high-tech artwork and graphics look great, the characters are strong, the familiar story is nicely augmented with an interesting villain (Jafar, voiced by Jonathan Freeman), and there's an incredible hook atop the whole thing: Robin Williams's frantically hilarious vocal performance as Aladdin's genie. Even if one isn't particularly moved by the love story between the title character (Scott Weinger) and his girlfriend Jasmine (Linda Larkin), you can easily get lost in Williams's improvisational energy and the equally entertaining performances of Freeman and Gilbert Gottfried (as Jafar's parrot). --Tom Keogh

Special Features

First off, the presentation is a knockout. Restored and cleaned up for the DVD release, the 1992 film looks grand, with the strong color scheme brought to a new level of vitality. The "Disney Enhanced" 5.1 sound is a bit warmer and robust than the standard 5.1 Dolby sound (also included). Disney has honed its ability to present a vast amount of information smoothly. "A Diamond in the Rough," the two-hour documentary, can be viewed three ways: via an index (with the duration of each segment nicely noted), an interactive menu, or a simple one-click "play all" mode. Add the information from the two new commentary tracks (one by the directors and producers, the other--much more amusing--by four character animators), and you can digest that even though Beauty and the Beast may have been more prestigious, Aladdin was much more challenging and fun to animate. A town hall-type retrospective brings together many of the talents to reminisce but, alas, Robin Williams's lack of participation in the DVD is evident (he does appear--in rare form--in the vintage recording-session footage). In a nice change from the usual Disney sheen, the original story that was radically changed is discussed and deleted scenes are shown.

Another spotlight is on the music with four deleted songs on display with their rough animation (which was also deleted). One song, "Proud of Your Boy," receives an orchestral version with none other than Clay Aiken crooning the tune. For the kids, the games are quite lame, but a must-see--on the biggest screen possible--is the Magic Carpet Adventure. Like The Lion King DVD's "Virtual Safari," viewers race through the settings of the movie as if we are on a theme-park ride--without the motion. The adults will want to view it and might be needed to solve the puzzle via some quick inputting from the DVD remote. --Doug Thomas

5.0 out of 5 stars This is awesome April 6 2010
Format:DVD
I looked all over for this product! I grew up with Disney movies, so I wanted to share that experience with my kids. Aladdin was always one of my favorites. So far I have been able to find almost every Disney movie I wanted on DVD, but Aladdin was the hardest to find. Then I came across it on amazon, and was so excited! My 4 year old usually does not sit through a whole movie, but he does for Aladdin. He loves the music, and the genie is hilarious! So in closing, Aladdin is one of the best Disney movies ever. All Disney fans must have this in their collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece,finally arriving! March 3 2004
By T.E.
Format:DVD
Seems like years since I last saw Aladdin,it quickly became one of my favorite movies of all time,and with past Disney hits like The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast,Disney had yet another masterpiece in Aladdin.
It's a story about Aladdin,a street rat,growing up in Agrabah,who leads a carefree life until he stumbles upon the Cave of Wonders and frees the Genie from his lamp. He also falls in love with Jasmine,daughter of the sultan of Agrabah. But not all is peaceful,for the vizier Jafar,along with his wisecracking parrot,Iago,plan disaster upon the Sultan,Jasmine and all of Agrabah. It's all typical Disney hilarity and the trademark Disney music that we all fell in love with in Disney's classics.
I will be for sure snagging this come October when it's release date arrives.

5.0 out of 5 stars almost essential July 18 2004
Format:DVD
There are a select few of the films made by Disney that can almost be considered essential Kid fare. My personal faves are : Robin Hood, Lion King, and the great Aladdin. This is one of Disney's all time greatest moments ever. This is truly one of the best. Adults will find it amazing, kids will love it! An awesome and incredible tale of magic, wishes, coming of age, love, and temptation by absolute power. Wonderful, simply wonderful. Also was one of the first animated movies to really make use of a seamless blend of computer graphics and traditional animation styles. Perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aladdin, available on Dvd October 2004 Nov. 28 2003
By A. Venn
I can't wait till Aladdins out. Its the best movie ever. I had to borrow a friends VHS to keep because our original tape had worn cos of excessive viewing.
Being in Australia, we're about 5 months behind everywhere else.
I had The Lion King Dvd shipped over two weeks ago because Australia's not getting it until April of 2004.

I couldnt be bothered waiting.
And i was so excited to read that Platinum Edition Aladdin is out October 2004, in America anyway, so rest assured i'll have one pre-ordered so i dont have to wait till March 2005 for the Australian release of Dvd that everyone has been waiting so long for.

5.0 out of 5 stars My daughter loved it Jan. 19 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
My daughter loved it as a child and is now collecting many of her childhood favorites. She watched it after Christmas and was amazed again at how well it was done, considering when it came out.

It was shipped in a bubble envelope and the case was a little battered but no real damage.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Disney's best Nov. 6 2003
By Adam
As the title says, this really is one of Disney's best movies, in my opinion. Full of jokes for both children and adults, this is definately a movie worth buying. Watching it today still entertains me as much as it did back when i saw it in the theatre when I was 9. Robin Williams does an incredible job as the Genie; and Jonathan Freeman is equally impressive voicing my favorite character from the movie, Jafar. The release date for this DVD is sometime next year, and I definately intend to add it to my collection.

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT an official Disney release
Disney has not released this movie to Blu-Ray yet so I can only assume this product violates copyright law.

Excellent. The re-mastering of the animation on this Blu-Ray is worthy of an HD TV.
