In the heart 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.

While I literally just wrote a review calling the new live-action Aladdin movie a good movie, I have to call the 1992 animated version here a classic. A hands-down classic. One of the key things this movie had over the new one is Robin Williams as our lovable and funny Genie. While this movie has a lot of great things going for it and one of which is nostalgia at this point, you just can’t top Robin Williams and the energy he puts into his role. So if you want a reason to see this one in the small chance you haven’t seen it, you need to see it for Williams. Other than that we have a great movie with a strong plot and classic characters with good heroes and bad guys. It’s a tone of fun and next to The Lion King, I think it might be the best-animated film that Disney has ever done. I know that covers a lot of ground, but that’s how I feel. This movie finally gets the credit it needs with this Signature Series release from Disney.

I’m not a dude that usually loves music and such in a movie, but Aladdin has some great songs and performances in it. They have those types of songs that when you hear them they are stuck in your head for the rest of the day and that’s a good thing. There’s comedy, there’s action, and there are some of the most memorable animated scenes on the screen here that you will ever see. The movie hits Blu-ray here with a great look. Disney has found a way to make older animated movies look great. An art that many other companies have yet to be abe to truly do. It also comes with loads of extras that will give you all you want and more if you are a fan of this movie and want to take the deepest dive into that you possibly can.
