Thanks to Disney for sending me a press copy of Aladdin, it was nice to replace my VHS copy.
Over two decades later, Disney has re-released the beloved movie, Aladdin, the story everyone’s favorite genie. I loved introducing my kids to the film and a new princess, though I tell you, Quincy was NOT a fan of Jafar. Can you blame her? Otherwise they really loved the movie and it was fun to see it again!

Experience the laughter, adventure and Academy Award®-winning music (1992: Best Music, Original Song, “A Whole New World,” Original Score) for the first time on Blu-ray and Digital HD.
