Produced by the Disney Channel, this musical version of ALADDIN is based on a popular stage production by the Prince Street Players, with music by Jim Eiler and Jeanne Bargy and book and lyrics by Eiler.
Aladdin, the clever hero of Agrabah, continues his adventures with the help of his fiancee Princess Jasmine, his pet monkey Abu, Magic Carpet, Iago the greedy parrot, and of course his best friend the semi-cosmic Genie.
This is the classic story of the young boy Aladdin who is tricked by and evil wizard to go inside the cave that holds a great treasure and there is an old lamp that he needs to bring to him... See full summary »
I watched this piece of semi animated junk last night, and have to agree with the previous reviews. It is utter junk. The voices don't suit the characters, and the animation is almost non existent. It brings back nightmares of watching the ultra limited animations like Filmation TV cartoons of the 60's and 70's. Actually I thought this was from the 1970's until I found it here, and couldn't believe it wasn't released until 1992! Maybe it was produced in the 70's and somebody bought it off the dust covered shelf, and decided to try and beat Disney to the finish line when they heard they (Disney) were making an Aladdin movie. Beware, this usually sells for a $1 or $2, even though the picture and sound are pretty good for a "cheap" DVD, there is absolutely no entertainment value, not even for little kids!
