Disney releases “Aladdin: Diamond Edition” and “Tomorrowland” for home viewing


On October 13th, Disney released two new movies on Blu-ray Combo Pack. I remember going to see “Aladdin” when it was released in theatres as a kid and it has been a favourite of mine ever since. I was thrilled to hear that “Aladdin: Diamond Edition” was on its way to our house!

Climb aboard for a magical carpet ride with nonstop laughs, action-packed adventure and Academy Award®–winning music that will make your heart soar(1992: Best Music, Original Song, “A Whole New World,” Original Score). Now for the first time ever, a whole new world of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Aladdin is revealed in a whole new way on Blu-ray and Digital HD—with never-before-seen bonus!

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!

As with all Disney Blu-ray releases, the sound and picture quality is light-years ahead of our old VHS copy. There are also so many bonus features! I love that all of Genie’s impressions are in “Genie 101″ (hosted by the voice of Aladdin, who sounds exactly the same) as many kids won’t be familiar with them (and many adults may not be able to place them all since they come so fast and furious), as well as the Genie Outtakes. I deeply miss Robin Williams and I love that I have these special ways to share his particular “genie-us” with my daughters.

As soon as my husband and I left the screening of “Tomorrowland”, we knew that we’d want to own it! This will be a family favourite in a couple of years when our daughters are in the right age range.

Dreamers Wanted…Disney invites you to an incredible world of epic imagination where anything is possible.  Buckle your seat belt, as the director of The Incredibles takes your family on an action-packed thrill ride.

Join former boy genius Frank (George Clooney), optimistic, science-minded teen Casey (Britt Robertson), mysterious Athena (Raffey Cassidy) and the brilliant David Nix (Hugh Laurie) in a world of pure Disney imagination.  Tomorrowland transports you on an inspiring and magical journey of wonder and adventure to a place where if you can dream it, you can do it.
