A lot like Aladdin!

This was Julie Andrews first movie and she made it when she was only 14 years old. Since it's animated you of course don't see her face but her voice is very recognizable. It has a typical plot with the typical good-guy-saves-the-day sort of thing. It's very similar to Aladdin in many ways. I didn't find it particularly interesting but it was still cool to hear Julie singing when she was so young! One dis-advantage was that the film was very bad quality because it was made so long ago. Overall a very sweet movie but I would only recommend it to young children and Julie's biggest fans! It's hard to get a hold of so if your looking for it go to www.half.com
