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 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.

The release of Aladdin on Blu ray is warmly welcomed by all fans of the film but it has to be said the merciless gaze of Hi-Def does the film few favours.

The simple storyline of poor thief turned prince by a helpful genie is given a fun re-telling with a more modern heroine in the stroppy princess Jasmine & the introduction of a an evil vizier. For me it's Jafar's disdainful and ruthless character that makes this as good as it is although I have to admit that where I once found Iago, his Parrot henchman, funny he is for the most part pretty irritating.
The biggest plaudits have always gone to Robin Williams rapid fire Genie. There are an awful lot of easily missed moments of comic brilliance but it's easily forgotten just how late into the film his character appears and how little screen time he actually gets.

The picture here is as crisp as you could hope for. The colours are best when a scene is lamp lit, particularly the cave of wonders which glistens with gold & purple. It has to be said though that there are one or two moments of pretty ropey animation, (the carpet ride escape from the cave is poor and seems a good excuse for a game tie-in). Colours are not always vibrant and it sometimes feels as if special effort was made for a few spectacular scenes but not everywhere. Certainly compared to Beauty & the beast this is not reference standard.

The sound is adequate but is limited by the original. The standout moment is the opening of the cave of wonders, the creature's rumbling and growling fills both front and rear speakers and adds a nice sense of danger to the scene.
Elsewhere the standout audio moments are the songs which are sharp and make following the lyrics easy.

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
