Aladdin

Aladdin

(1992)

A diamond in the rough.

Disney’s animated take on the classic Arabian tale, featuring Oscar-winning music and Robin Williams as a wise-cracking blue genie. Young 'street rat' Aladdin has dreams of being something nobler than a small marketplace thief. He discovers a bond with Princess Jasmine during a chance encounter, but is arrested for thievery by the palace guards soon after. In custody, Aladdin learns of a magical lamp that will grant him any wish he desires. Escaping from prison, he heads for the promised land in search of the mythical treasure, completely unaware that he is being manipulated by the Sultan’s sinister Grand Vizier, Jafar.

  • Robin Williams and animation were born for one another, and in Aladdin they finally meet. Full Review

  • The fundamentals here go beyond first-rate: animation both gorgeous and thoughtful, several wonderful songs and a wealth of funny minor figures on the sidelines, practicing foolproof Disney tricks. Full Review

  • An instant classic and a massive hit, it emboldened Michael Eisner's outfit to go further, weirder, darker. Full Review

  • Floridly beautiful, shamelessly derivative and infused with an irreverent, sophisticated comic flair thanks to Robin Williams' vocal calisthenics... Full Review
