Synopsis: When street rat Aladdin frees a genie from a lamp, he finds his wishes granted. However, he soon finds that the evil has other plans for the lamp -- and for Princess Jasmine. But can Aladdin save Princess Jasmine and his love for her after she sees that he isn't quite what he appears to be?
Main Feature: Disney's original "Aladdin" is a rightfully cherished classic, borderline masterpiece. Anchored by the explosive talent of Robin Williams, the film still dazzles and delights for new fans and old. I recall seeing this in the the theater as a child. My mother made a point my sister and I see this, "The Little Mermaid," and all the other Disney animation renaissance features of the '90s. I distinctly have fond memories of watching "Aladdin" in the theater and multiple times at home. I was happy to watch it with my young son and introduce the bright, vibrant animation and catchy tunes. It holds up to this day.
Special Features: Some of the extras from the previous Diamond Edition release carry over as digital form only. But some new bonuses are tossed in. A treasure trove of making of featurettes, sing alongs, deleted scenes, cast and crew features and more. The highlight will forever be the outtakes they have of Williams in full improvisational mode, showcasing the hours of footage helped create but could only be whittled down to a fraction. The overall bonus features may not warrant a new purchase for those already in possession of the Diamond Edition. Both are quality in the special features department.
Final Call: The Signature Edition Blu-ray of "Aladdin" may be a slim upgrade from the predecessor, but the magic of the film still remains a wish come true.
