Aladdin: Diamond Edition (Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD)

Blu-ray Review


Directed by: Ron Clements, John Musker Cast: Scott Weinger, Robin Williams, Linda Larkin, Gilbert Gottfried Running Time: 1 hr 30 mins Rating: G Due Out: October 13, 2015

PLOT: A street urchin (Weinger) falls for a beautiful princess (Larkin). He then uses a genie's (Williams) magic power to make himself a prince in order to marry her.

WHO'S IT FOR? Everyone, of course. Plus, this is one of Williams' signature roles, so the fact that you get a little extra from the extras about his wonderful performance, makes this Diamond Edition a must buy.

Brad Kane discussing his experiences recording the memorable songs that we all know and love from Aladdin.
