I've probably seen this before. I know I didn't see it when it was released, but it's incredibly likely that I've seen it on DVD at a friend's house at some point. I didn't really remember it though, and when I saw that it was premiering on terrestrial TV I figured I'd watch it - it looked like it might be quite good, after all.

The plot follows Aladdin, a "street urchin" who is worthy enough to acquire a magical lamp that contains a genie who will grant you three wishes (Robin Williams). As with all good Disney movies, there is a terrifying baddie (Jafar), cute animals and a number of musical moments.

Once again, this is great Disney. Aladdin is a really enjoyable film with a great plot, some brilliant songs and some incredibly cute, loveable animals. A great way to spend a couple of hours, whatever your age.

Rating: 4 out of 5

About Me

My photo
I live in Bristol with my husband Dan (who I married in July 2007), my son Joe (born 2012) and daughter Jess (born 2015). I work at UWE (the University of the West of England) in Bristol as a Research and Open Access Librarian. I'm orginally from Exeter, so moving back to Bristol is a bit like coming home - especially as I studied for my undergraduate degree here (also at UWE). I love travelling and movies, although I get to do a lot less of both since the birth of our children. Although we have still managed to fit in holidays to the Isles of Scilly, Chamonix and a summer in California since Joe was born.
