Disney was on fire in the 90's! Here's another classic!

Aladdin is the story of a poor thief (or Street Rat) he's struggling to make ends meet, but he dreams of the beautiful Princess Jasmine. The villainous Jafar aims to force Jasmine into marriage so he can rule over Agrabah, however Aladdin discovers a Genie who can grant him wishes, together they aim to stop Jafar.

Starting in '89 with The Little Mermaid Disney was making classic after classic. Aladdin was definitely one of their best. It was definitely there funniest. There are several comedic characters, such as Iago, Abu, Magic Carpet and the Sultan. But none are anywhere near as funny as Genie.

On top of being funny Aladdin also boasts a great soundtrack. Almost every song in this film is great!

While I do feel like it was predictable, telling a story we're al very familiar with. It tells it in such a funny and bright way that's easily overlooked.

Aladdin deserves it's spot on the Walt Disney Animated Studios canon! Two thumbs up!

Genie grants three wishes

Aladdin is about a young Middle Eastern homeless guy living on the dusty streets of Agrabah. Aladdin, the main character, owns a monkey named Abu. Early in the movie, he, by chance, ends up meeting the princess, Jasmine, who is in disguise because she wants to get out of the palace where she lives and experience life on the outside in the real world. She doesn't like it in the palace because it is confining and she is not able to make her own choices. For example, she must find a husband by her next birthday per the local law. While they are hanging out, Aladdin is arrested for stealing bread from earlier. He is taken to the dungeon. Her pleas to let him go fall on empty ears because the palace guards are under the orders of Jafar, an evil sorcerer who works for the King, Jasmine's father. They do not disclose to him or to her whether they are there specifically to arrest him. Later, while Aladdin is in shackles, Jafar sneaks into his cell disguised as an old peasant donning a gold tooth and hobbling around on a wooden cane that looks like a giant corkscrew. In exchange for Aladdin's assistance in finding treasure, this magic lamp, Jafar says that he will help Aladdin escape. He begrudgingly agrees. What else is he supposed to do?! Aladdin goes with the disguised Jafar to Cave of Wonders where, inside, he finds the lamp. Find out what Aladdin does with his 3 wishes and how he tries to win over the princess's heart.

"Imagine if you had three wishes, three hopes, three dreams, and they all could come true."

A restless street urchin (Weinger) encounters a dissatisfied princess in disguise (Larkin), and granted three wishes by a wisecracking, shapeshifting genie (Williams), sets out to win her hand in marriage, while simultaneously defeating a nefarious court advisor (Freeman), who wants the kingdom for himself.

A double major award winner for Original Score and Song ("A Whole New World" composed by Menken with new collaborator Tim Rice), although the musical highlight is arguably the witty and majestic "Prince Ali" (one of lyricist Howard Ashman's last contributions to a Disney film).

Williams' magnificent voice performance was also recognised with a Special Achievement Award at the Golden Globes for his improvised vocal work.

Blu-ray Extras: Commentary, Documentary, Deleted Scenes, Music Videos. ***½ (7/10)
