Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook - Includes embossed artwork. This product is limited to 5000 copies and is now OOP. For the first time on Disney Blu-ray - soar away on a magic carpet ride of non-stop laughs and thrills in one of the most spectacular adventures of all time. Experience the wonders of Aladdin like never before - from the Academy Award-winning music to the unforgettable moments of sidesplitting comedy and soaring adventure. In the heart 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.
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 --This text refers to the DVD edition.

This DVD takes the original film and brings the image and sound quality bang up to date, compared to the original VHS I have I cannot believe they are the same film. The extras on disc 2 are more suited to children however for us grown ups there are plenty of interesting bits such as the commentary and the trivia subtitles which point you towards such features as Disney in-jokes and which characters are based on members of the team.
An excellent buy for both the young and young at heart
However calling the DVD a 'Musical Masterpiece' edition is a bit of a marketing con. The only features are a pamphlet like booklet with song lyrics and then there's an option to put the film on with song subtitles appearing.
I did buy the DVD just for the film so I really didn't mind the lack of decent extras too much, it's a good price for a very good movie but if you're an extras fan it may be worth trying to find the DVD that was released in 2004.
The movies centres around a charming street urchin (or 'street rat' as he is labelled by locals) called Aladdin, who accidentally meets, and quickly falls in love with the beautiful Princess Jasmin. Jasmin is bored of her royal lifestyle, and the restrictions she faces, and one day ventures out into the city undercover, where she meets the homeless Aladdin, and his trusty monkey sidekick Abu. Aladdin charms her, and she falls in love with him as well but, unfortunately she can only marry a prince. Her father the Sultan, is advised by his evil sorcerer adviser Jafar, and throws him in jail. After finding himself a lamp, and a friendship in the flamboyant, larger than life genie (beautifully played by the late Robin Williams who effortlessly uses his great comic timing in the role), Aladdin sets out to prove himself, and win Jasmin's heart. But with Jafar plotting to rule Sultan's kingdom via help from the lamp, it isn't going to be easy.
Like 'The Lion King, 'Aladdin' is one Disney adventure that you can go on time and time again, with beautiful animation, brilliant characters, and a stunning soundtrack - it's as fun and adventurous as it could possibly be, but there's also a lot of genuinely heartfelt moments as well, that makes it perfect for kids and adults alike. Here is a real animated treasure, and fun with a capital F.
