Our Score
Robin Williams's vocal performance as the Genie steals the show in this beautifully constructed Disney animation, his ad-libbing a perfect match for the wonderful visuals. Kids will be enchanted by the captivating Arabian Nights tale, in which street urchin Aladdin (voiced by Scott Weinger) uses a magical oil lamp and its wish-granting genie to win the love of Princess Jasmine (Linda Larkin, Lea Salonga singing) and defeat the evil Jafar (Jonathan Freeman). There's plenty for adults to enjoy, too, particularly the film's delightful songs and numerous sophisticated references. In the end, though, it's Williams's movie.

Summary

A street urchin is caught up in a scheming grand vizier's plot to get his clutches on a magical lamp. Retrieving the object from a wondrous cave, he releases a powerful genie trapped inside, whose ability to grant wishes helps the young hero thwart the villain's plans and woo a princess. Animated adventure, featuring the voices of Robin Williams, Scott Weinger and Linda Larkin.
