The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

It might not have all the im­pres­sive spe­cial ef­fects now com­mon in car­toon flicks, but this 1992 Dis­ney film, re-re­leased on Blu-ray and DVD, is a clas­sic for a rea­son. It com­bines a mag­i­cal story with beau­ti­ful mu­si­cal num­bers and hu­mour in a sharp and en­ter­tain­ing package. The story fol­lows street-smart thief Aladdin who is lured by an evil man to re­trieve a mag­i­cal lamp. But when Aladdin and his mon­key, Abu, dis­cover a wise-crack­ing, wish-grant­ing ge­nie in­side the lamp it opens up a world of pos­si­bil­i­ties. Robin Wil­liams is sim­ply bril­liant as the hi­lar­i­ous Ge­nie. ★★★★ Ex­tras: Movie mu­sic mode and Sing-along mode (more on Blu-ray) ★
