Aladdin: Special Edition

5

You can't make an animated feature nowadays without having at least one Hollywood A-lister providing the vocals. Back in 1992, however, casting Robin Williams as Aladdin's Genie was a revelation that brought a whole new, adult audience to the Disney stable. Flipping through faces and voices with breathless élan, the sometime stand-up finds the perfect medium for his comic mania. His flights of fancy are anchored by a strong story and lush, flowing visuals inspired by caricaturist Al Hirschfeld. Smart, fresh and funny: you couldn't wish for more.
