Street urchin Aladdin (Scott Weinger) develops a relationship with a genie (Robin Williams) from a lamp and uses his wishes to become a prince in order to marry Princess Jasmine (Linda Larkin). However, the evil Jafar (Jonathan Freeman) has other plans for the lamp.


Aladdin has never been my favourite Disney flick but on the other hand, Jasmine has always been one of my favourite Disney princesses. I don't know if it's even possible but I think I had a crush on her. Anyway, that's the reason I decided to rewatch it before the new live-action film gets released and ruins her and this film because we all know that's going to happen. But let's move on onto the fact that this Aladdin is a pretty good and very fun to watch movie.

As normal with most Disney films, the story is very simple and not so deep and it's also a story we all know. Nevertheless, it has a wonderful pace and it is so magical, it will definitely grab your attention from start to finish. And it has a very beautiful love story.

But the story wouldn't be anything without its fantastic and beautifully animated characters. The genie is easily the most amusing character as well as the most hilarious genie ever created and that's mainly thanks to the great voice work by Robin Williams. Jasmine isn't only a beautiful princess but she also has a strong personality which is the reason I always liked her. And the animal sidekicks are simply amazing. Abu, Aladdin's monkey, is adorable, but my favourite will always be Iago, the sarcastic parrot/sidekick to Jafar, one of the best Disney villains ever if you ask me.

The only flaw? Aladdin doesn't compare with the other characters. But at least he sings, along with Jasmine, the most mesmerizing song of the film, "A Whole New World". That song is just wonderful.


  1. E' stato il primo film che ho visto al cinema...
    Ci sono davvero legato!

    1. Io non ricordo il mio primo film, ma Aladdin mi è sempre piaciuto. Sarà il fascino dell'oriente.

  2. Jasmine is also one of my favorite Disney princesses!

    I think Aladdin works because of Robin Williams. Genie is the best part of the movie. The side characters were great.

    1. I'm not sure about that. I grew up watching it dubbed in Italian and the Genie was pretty awesome in that version too.

  3. This is one I have not seen but want to because of Robin Williams

  4. I need to watch it in its entirety which I never have - only in bits and pieces. From that I can tell that this is Robin Williams' movie and Aladdin is one of least interesting things about his own movie.

    1. Yes, you're right. But Williams is amazing and makes the watch worthy.

  5. Am lookin' forward to seein' Will Smith as the genie
