This weekend while out a garage sale, Charlotte and I were excited to hit the jackpot on DVDs and Blu-Ray – so excited to replace some of our worn out and scratched favorites with fresh copies.
But one thing we didn’t find was Aladdin– but I am excited to announce that the wait is over for Aladdin fans as the Diamond Edition of Aladdin, in a Blu-Ray combo pack, comes out of the vault and into reality on October 13th, 2015. What is a Diamond Edition? According to the Disney Wikipedia page: ” The Walt Disney Diamond Editions are a line of DVDs and Blu-rays that began with the Blu-ray release of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on October 6, 2009. It is a successor to the Platinum Edition line that is made available on Blu-ray, DVD, 3D, and Digital.”
Disney’s beloved masterpiece will make your heart race and your spirit soar. Experience the laughter, adventure and Academy Award®-winning music (1992: Best Music, Original Song, “A Whole New World,” Original Score) for the first time on Blu-ray and Digital HD. And now Aladdin shines even brighter with never-before-seen tributes to the enchanting talent of Robin Williams, the “Genius behind the Genie.
Now a whole new generation of kids can enjoy the beauty that made Aladdin such an instant world wide hit. With one of Robin Williams most iconic character, Genie, and a slew full of extras you have never seen, the Diamond Edition is your next family movie night done right.
