Aladdin Still Thrills

Aladdin gets a rapturous response. Audiences have thrilled to the exotic escapades of its (suspiciously Caucasian) hero and lapped up the comic stylings of Robin Williams – the first bigname signing in a genre that would come to depend on them. An instant classic and a massive hit, it emboldened Michael Eisner’s outfit to go further, weirder, darker.
