This movie is AWESOME but do not buy this right now!! Disney is FINALLY releasing Aladdin under their Diamond line in the US in October 2015. It's bound to be LOADED with extras and have perfect audio and video. Just wait a few more months!!

I don't usually bother writing reviews, because it always opens a can of worms and reviews can eventually become a boxing match for the righteous. I don't have time for nit picking and nonsense. However, I wanted to write this one to help others in the US avoid any stress in case they decide to buy this Blu Ray version, as it is a UK import. Until my purchase arrived, I was unclear, because most reviews of the Blu ray import are lacking in this basic, clear statement: IT WORKS.

So then, I will happily repeat myself for your benefit and will say that, first and foremost: IT WORKS IN US BLU RAY PLAYERS without a hitch! There are no PAL/NTSC issues. Also, as stated in the listing, it contains several languages, starting with the original English, but there is no Spanish (in case this is a concern for you). Also, just so you know, there is NO DVD COPY with this BLU RAY package.

The video and audio quality are what you'd expect from a US Disney Blu Ray release, so I won't go into detail other than to say it both are excellent. And yeah, the first song in the film is the edited one we have heard since Disney felt forced to change the lyrics. I have that VHS version and the CD soundtrack with the original and, while I like originals in most cases, I did not keep me from getting this Blu ray and I am Ok with it.

And while the Magic Code will not work in your US Disney rewards account, sadly, the bottom line is there is no need for you to wait for Disney to decide that Americans are finally ready for the honor and blessings of these wonderful films (I include 101 Dalmatians in this sarcasm) to be released domestically. You can get them now.

When Disney's Aladdin was released on videotape and laserdisc for the first time in October 1993, it debuted with a PC alteration, immediately into the film, as a line from the opening song was changed because of concerns over Arab stereotyping - "Where they cut off your ear if they don't like your face" became the neutral "Where it's flat and immense and the heat is intense".
As the film makes is debut on DVD later this year, prepare for more changes, albeit subtle. Just like they did with The Lion King, the Disney team is not using the original theatrical presentation of the film, but a re-issue created for IMAX theatres, which featured some redrawn sequences, supposedly necessary because the original footage in question was problematic on the giant IMAX screen (Examples of the changes to The Lion King can be easily found on the web). The difference this time around is that no one ever saw it. The IMAX presentations were financially unrewarding to Disney, and Aladdin was never shown.
The original release had wonderful color composition, especially in the opening scenes introducing Jafar and the Cave Of Wonders, and Pixar's digital images of The Cave's exterior would foreshadow their upcoming quality feature work that Disney would distribute. As far as casting, it sounds like Robin Williams and Gilbert Gottfried had a great time cutting loose in the studio.
With few exceptions, this film is a delight from start to finish. The low rating comes from the fact that the original theatrical version will not be used, but the redrawn IMAX version. It deserves to be part of your collection, but not like this...

Get ready for this new two-disc DVD set which is going to teach you a whole bunch of stuff about "Aladdin" you never knew, as well as present you with an aweseome version of the original film.

The film itself is a masterpiece. It won two Academy Awards for its music and features a touching story and compelling cast of characters. The humor throughout the movie is spot-on, from the antics of Aladdin and the Genie (Robin Williams), to the cleverness of Princess Jasmine, and most definitely the bitingly witty remarks from the main villain Jafar and his sidekick parrot Iago (Gilbert Gottfried.) The entire movie has been remastered digitally with enhanced sound and is presented in widescreen. It is also close-captioned, or you can choose subtitles if you like.

One of the most talked about special features of the DVD set is "Proud of Your Boy" --- a song deleted from the movie after it was decided to remove Aladdin's Mother from the story. With the DVD version, you get the awesome music video of this song by Clay Aiken. However, you also get a bunch more interesting material including the original storyboards from the scene, a behind-the-scenes view, commentary from the people involved with the music, and the original recording of the song by Alan Menken. (Which in my opinion is as at least as good as Clay's, if not better.)

You'll also get three other deleted songs from the movie, as well as a new music video of "A Whole New World" and another bonus music video of it from 1992.

There's much more to explore also. You'll get to see "A Diamond in the Rough: The Making of Aladdin," which takes you inside the special effects, the music, the cast and casting and much more.
