A few months ago I told you all about Aladdin coming to Blu-Ray Combo Pack on October 13th. Well, I was able to score an advance copy of the film and I want to tell you all about it!
Soar away on a magic carpet ride of nonstop laughs and thrills in one of the most spectacular adventures on all time! Now meticulously restored and enhanced – experience the wonders of “Aladdin” like never before, from the Academy Award winning music (Best Music, Original Song for “A Whole New World” and Best Music, Original Score, 1993) to the unforgettable moments of sidesplitting comedy and soaring adventure.
In the heat 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.
Enjoy this magic carpet ride of non-stop comedy on Blu-ray Combo Pack on October 13th.
I was singing at top volume to all my favorite songs from the film including A Whole New World, One Jump, and You Ain’t Never Had a Friend Like Me. Not to mention, I realized I can still quote the film word for word. The vivid and rich colors of Agrabah really come to live on the blu-ray making this Disney masterpiece even more enchanting.
This Blu-ray Combo Pack is full of amazing bonus features.
• The Genie Outtakes: This hilarious deleted scenes style feature provides a glimpse into the comedic genius of Robin Williams, voice of Genie. During his recording sessions William, adlibbed, improvised, and had fun creating his own dialogue. The Disney animators have put together some classic rough animations to go along with some of these very funny outtakes.
• Aladdin: Creating the Broadway Magic: This was my favorite bonus feature! Composer Alan Menken, along with many of the important people for bringing Aladdin to the stage, take you on a behind the curtain look at what it was like to create Aladdin for a live audience. I really enjoyed the candid interviews with the cast and crew as they discussed their struggles and triumphs.
• Unboxing Aladdin: Hosted by Disney Channel’s Joey Bragg, this features is aimed at the pre-teen crowd and offers some interesting information about hidden magic throughout the movie. For example, did you know that in Aladdin you can spot Mickey ears, The Beast, and Sebastian?
• Genie 101: Hosted by Scott Weigner, the voice of Aladdin, this feature takes a closer look at the many famous references that are made by Genie. The next time you watch the film, see if you can spot famous “cameos” from Robert DeNiro, Jack Nicholson, Rodney Dangerfield and many more.
• Disney Song Selection: This one is just what it sounds like; sing along to all your favorite musical numbers!
• So much more!: The combo pack also features as section called “Classic Bonus” that holds deleted scenese, deleted songs, a tour through the genie’s lamp, and more.
