There are a few classic Disney movies that are especially close to my heart, and one of those is Aladdin. I loved the Arabian theme, the catchy music and, of course, the high-energy Genie voiced by the late, great Robin Williams. Now, Disney is bringing the magic back for children of all ages with the Diamond Edition release of Disney’s Aladdin! Here’s a brief synopsis:
Disney’s beloved masterpiece will make your heart race and your spirit soar. Experience the laughter, adventure and Academy Award-winning music for the first time on Blu-ray and Digital HD. And now Aladdin shines even brighter with never-before-seen tributes to the enchanting talent of Robin Williams, the “Genius behind the Genie.”
Watching this movie on Blu-ray with my boys was one of those special moments that I’ll remember for years. I love that Aladdin has a boy hero, and Zackary and Benjamin loved following along with the adventures of the downtrodden “street rat,” his mischievous monkey and his new magical Genie friend. Best of all, the Diamond Edition has tons of bonus features including Genie Outtakes and behind-the-scenes documentaries that are sure to make this release a family treasure.
To me, Aladdin has the perfect combination of magical Disney elements necessary for creating a timeless masterpiece. The magic that the Genie adds to the movie, the fun and catchy music, the charming and lovable characters and the message about always being yourself combine to create a movie that’s a diamond in its own right. Grab your Diamond Edition of Disney’s Aladdin in stores now and share this heartwarming story with your loved ones this weekend!
