Disclosure- I went on an all expense paid trip on behalf of Disney to cover the Blu-ray release of Tomorrowland and Aladdin as well as Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary. All opinions are my own.
I can’t wait to tell you all about meeting Eric Goldberg, the main artist who drew the Genie on Aladdin. We all know the story of Aladdin by now but it’s amazing to be able to rediscover it with a new generation now that it is being release from Disney’s vault in a new Diamond Edition. Aladdin, Jasmine, The Genie and other memorable characters are now available on Disney Movies Anywhere (DMA) and Digital HD and they will be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack October 13th!

Now meticulously restored and enhanced – experience the wonders of “Aladdin” like never before, from the Academy Award®-winning music (Best Music, Original Song for “A Whole New World” and Best Music, Original Score, 1993) to the unforgettable moments of sidesplitting comedy and soaring adventure.
In the heat of an enchanted city, a commoner named Aladdin and his mischievous monkey Abu battle to save the free-spirited Princess Jasmine from the schemes of the evil sorcerer Jafar.
