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.

Format: DVD
Aladdin is an orphan stealing what he needs to eat. Jasmine is the princess, but is unhappy to be forced to marry. One day, they meet in the market, and its love at first sight. But Jasmine can only marry a prince. Meanwhile, Jafar's schemes to go from advisor to Sultan bring him across Aladdin's path. But when Aladdin finds the Genie of the lamp, things really get interesting.
And fun. As anyone who has seen this movie will tell you, Robin Williams as the Genie absolutely makes this movie. I still haven't caught all his characters and impersonations, but they still make me laugh. The plot itself is better then their usual fairy tale romance with Jafar making a truly evil villain. The songs are some of their best and most memorable, especially the romantic song "Whole New World." And the climax is one of my favorites because of how cleaver it is. The animation is beautiful with vibrant colors bringing the story to life.
I've been looking forward to this DVD release since it was announced. And let me tell you, it looks and sounds great. Perfect widescreen, and the immersive audio mix is truly breathtaking. Extras include two commentary tracks and a fun pop-up trivia option. The story got quite an overhaul from the original version they were thinking of, and some of the original material is presented here, including a song recorded by Clay Aiken. Disc two features a reunion of the producers, animators, and voice cast interspersed with behind the scenes material. Honestly, this felt like it was leaving stuff out and could have been more in depth. There's also a tribute to composure Alan Menken, games for kids, and the usual art galleries. Most noticeably missing from the extras is Robin Williams.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Grand Vizier Jafar on 7 Oct 2004
Format: DVD
This film is great! The story (the director's is responsible for the classics The Little Mermaid, Hercules and Treasure Planet), the animation (animators Andreas Deja, Will Finn, Eric Goldberg, Mark Henn, Glen Keane), the musical score (Alan Menken), the songs (Howard Ashman & Alan Menken and Alan Menken & Tim Rice), the cast (Jonathan Freeman, Gilbert Gottfried, Robin Williams) - everything is just magical!

Aladdin is perhaps the best of all the great Disney films, counting such classics as Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Pocahontas, Hercules, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Alice in Wonderland, Bambi, Pinocchio, Peter Pan, The Lion King etc.

Aladdin is a better film than The Lion King, and this DVD release is as good as the collector's edition 2-Disc release of Beauty and the Beast. The bonus on the DVD release of The Lion King was very bad - if not missing. I really hope that Disney's DVD release's continue to be this good.

And the best thing about the whole movie; The performance of the fantastic actor/Broadway singer Jonathan Freeman! Williams is great too, but did get more attention/credits than he deserved. Freeman is very, very good as the evil, malevolent Grand Vizier and sorcerer - to bad he did not get a long song in the film (such as "Why Me", "Humiliate the Boy" or "Master of the Lamp" - all Menken/Ashman/Rice songs). But his musical reprise of Prince Ali is performed great. Freeman has the most awesome, evil laughter in the world, I think! (Freeman is returning in The Return of Jafar, with a catchy song - "(You're) Only Second Rate".)

Enjoy this Walt Disney Picture Masterpiece! And if you want The Disney Company to make more classical (2-D), hand-drawn animated features in the future, visit w[...] and support Roy Disney in his battle against the forces of evil; Disney boss Michael Eisner (a person that does only think about money, not art or entertainment). SAVEDISNEY for the future!
