Disney adaptation of the traditional tale, featuring an Oscar-winning score by Tim Rice and the voice of Robin Williams as the Genie in the lamp. Aladdin, a street urchin with a pet monkey called Abu, one day meets the beautiful Princess Jasmine by chance in the marketplace after she has sneaked out of the royal palace looking for some fun. The sultan's advisor, the evil Jafar, who is hatching an evil plot to marry Jasmine and become sultan himself, senses her attraction to the youth and immediately gives orders to throw Aladdin in jail. But when Aladdin discovers a magic lamp in a cave, his quest begins: to defeat Jafar and win the hand of the princess, with the help of the Genie in the lamp.

I bought Aladdin being a big fan of the Disney films and I was very pleased with the movie itself; Robin Williams is hilarious as the Genie, the story is good if not a bit too eccentric, the songs are wonderful and picture and sound quality are perfect.

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.

Aladdin is, in my opinion, the best of the traditional (as in cartoon musicals) Disney films from the 90s. The story is full of black humour and the genie is perfectly voiced by Robin Williams.
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

I need not repeat what the other reviews have said - the picture and sound quality is excellent, the film has to be one of the best original Disney films, etc.
The one thing I would complain about is that Disney seem to have found a way to make this DVD like many of their old VHS tapes, i.e. forcing you to watch trailers for other films before you get to the root menu on the DVD, like the copyright notices. And once you start the film, they show about 5 "so-and-so productions" trailers, which aren't in the chapter system of the actual film, i.e. you can't skip them either! It takes something in the order of 5 minutes to actually get to the film, whereas most DVDs are up and running inside of 30 seconds. A real pain when all you want to do is let a friend sing along to one of the songs.
Considering that one reason people prefer DVDs is the lack of adverts, this is a big disappointment, as this means no doubt that this trend will continue with all future Disney DVDs.

Although I don't think this is one of the absolute best of Disney's catalogue, I do have a huge soft spot for this film, so snatched it up as soon as I could for the collection.

The picture transfer is perfect; the colours really pop out, and it has never looked better on vhs or dvd. The audio too is crisp beyond belief - the only minor complaint I could muster is one I've noticed on a small number of blu ray releases recently - the scoring track being louder than audio levels, but this only happened a couple of times throughout the film, and only had to be dropped one or two levels (live in a flat so more aware of it is all)
The extras are pretty fun, featuring the previous dvd editions and a couple of new ones to keep you occupied. Overall, this is of such high quality I can't recommend the film enough; even if you aren't getting it for the collection (thanks to the numbered sides on these releases)

This film has to be one of if not THE best Disney film there is. The story is great, the voices perfect, the songs brilliant! My favourite song from Aladdin is probably Friend Like Me but that's because I love Genie. However, all the songs are great in this film, there's none that you roll your eyes to because Disney have that great way of including a lovely slowie into a film but still having the humour there (like with A Whole New World).

Loved this film when I was little and chuffed now that my littl'un loves it too. Great fun for family viewing and still funny for adults!
