Disney's Aladdin Now Available on Blu-Ray and DVD


Disney's original Aladdin is one of my most favorite movies of all time. I didn't get to watch the live-action movie when it hit theaters, but I was so excited to have received a Blu-ray and DVD copy of the popular movie, as well as a copy of the original animated classic which was a recent addition to the Walt Disney Signature Collection.


About Disney's Aladdin:
Fans of all ages will enjoy the exciting, humorous tale of the lovable “street rat,” Aladdin (Mena Massoud), courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott) and the larger-than-life Genie (Will Smith) with all-new bonus features. The release of the live-action adventure coincides with the addition of the original animated classic to the highly celebrated Walt Disney Signature Collection — granting “Aladdin” fans everywhere the opportunity to own both magical movies. 
Extras explore elements of “Aladdin” that audiences adore, from the film’s treasured, iconic award-winning music to its beloved characters and their hilarious antics on and off screen. Viewers get the first look at an all-new song “Desert Moon,” deleted from the final film, written by eight-time Academy Award® winning composer Alan Menken and Oscar®-and Tony Award®-winning songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (“The Greatest Showman,” “La La Land”). Features document Guy Ritchie’s joyful, easy-going approach to directing that led to movie magic; Will Smith’s fresh take on the infamous shape-shifting blue entity confined to an oil lamp; Naomi Scott’s powerful performance as the spirited princess who yearns to lead the people of Agrabah; and the indescribable feeling of playing Aladdin chronicled personally by Mena Massoud. Deleted scenes and a blooper reel round out the fun. 
In addition, early owners of “Aladdin” gain access to exclusive bonus features. Fans who pre-purchase will receive a feature showcasing the making of the massive musical number “Prince Ali,” and those who bring home the film first on Digital will secure an exclusive extra detailing the creation of Jasmine’s new song “Speechless.”
“Aladdin” is sure to become an instant classic for viewers of all ages and will be packaged several ways to ensure the entire family gets the most out of its in-home entertainment experience. The film arrives two weeks early on Digital 4K Ultra HD and HD. A Digital bundle, which includes both the Walt Disney Signature Collection edition of the original animated classic “Aladdin” and the live-action adaptation, is also available for early purchase. A physical copy of the film will be released as a 4K Ultimate Collector’s Edition (4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and Digital Code), a Multi-Screen Edition (Blu-ray and Digital Code) and a single DVD.
My kids were just as ecstatic as I was to not only receive both Blu-ray copies of Disney's Aladdin, but also to receive some very special jams (jams played a part in the movie, if you haven't seen it yet), as well as some really cool travel item to take us on our next adventure to "A Whole New World."




We first watched the animated classic, and it was just as magical as I remembered.  Funny, heartwarming, and simply nostalgic.

The live-action version did not disappoint.  When it came out in theaters, I heard it was really good, and after watching it, I agree.  Will Smith was fantastic as Genie - witty and amusing, as one would expect.

Of course the live-action adaptation featured a great number of special effects and scenes, but it was quite neat to see how the movie came to life, and thankfully the heart of the story remained true. 

Aladdin is such a timeless, touching story.  Get both Blu-rays to add to your collection!
