Growing up it was always a huge treat to go to the movie theater. It was a family event. We would go an hour early, get great seats, play cards or make up quizzes to pass the time until the movie began. In 1992, I was too cool to watch a cartoon movie with my parents at the movie theater, but there was something about Aladdin that let this rule slip. Not surprising, I loved this Disney movie, as did everyone else! Aladdin was a huge box office success beating out both Batman Returns and Home Alone 2!! I explain it to my kids as being the “Frozen” of my generation

With the help of a hysterically funny, shape-shifting, 10,000-year-old Genie,street-smart commoner Aladdin and clever, confident Princess Jasmine join forces against the evil sorcerer Jafar to put an end to his plans to take over the kingdom!
One of the best things about the release of Aladdin Diamond Edition on Blueray and DVD is that I can share one of my favourite childhood shows with the my kids. Watching the movie is bittersweet, when I hear the happy and joyous Genie and think of Robin Williams passing. I love that his laughter and love will always live on in the Genie’s character.
This movie teaches kids so many valuable lessons:
- Stay true to your word – Aladdin did when he set the Genie free
- Some rules are meant to be broken- Jasmine disagreed with the ancient rule that a princess may only marry a prince. She wanted to marry for love and fought for it.
- Growing up with nothing doesn’t mean you are nothing – Aladdin grew up poor, but thanks to ambition and smarts, he was successful at achieving his true destiny.
- Evil never wins – Jafar thought that he could be take over the kingdom. But it was his greed that led to his downfall and entrapment in a lantern.
