Aladdin Promo Litho’s 1992

These lithos are re-drawings on promotion material from back in the days the movie was in theaters. I’ve the complete set of those framed on my wall for many years. I could only find this old photo from like 10 years ago but since a few years I’ve put the set in one big frame with a nice golden/brass border. I remember that the Platinum DVD set from 2004 had this collectors edition with a booklet and a set of character sketches of the main characters by their supervising animators.

Bonus Features on Aladdin Blu-Ray

Through Ultimate Disney The up and coming release of Aladdin on Blu-Ray in North America will contain some new bonus features. Of course it has a feature on the hit Broadway Show. Aladdin: Creating Broadway Magic which most likely will be about how the animated film was brought to the stage with interviews and snippets of the show itself. Then there’s a feature Unboxing Aladdin, no idea what that’s about. Next up is all about Genie. I think it will be a homage to the late Robin Williams. New interviews with the directors Ron Clements and John Musker in A Conversation with Ron & John. Disney Royalty Sing “A Whole New World” will be a cover by Disney latest batch teen stars sort of like Jessica Simpson with a guy who I can’t recall the name of did a cover of A Whole New World back in 2004. I looking forward to Genie Outtakes which I hope will be footage of Robin Williams ad0-lipping and improv’. And finally Classic Bonus are I hope the best bonus features from the SE DVD from 2004.

Lucky enough most of the 2004 making of documentary, A Diamond in the Rough is expected to being ported over. There is, however, a final cover art released this week.

I can’t say it’s the best artwork i’ve seen, the characters look completely off model. Notice that Iago is included as being part of the good guys unlike the VHS cover where he was still teamed up with Jafar.

20th anniversary The Return of Jafar

Did you know that yesterday, May 20th 2014, The Return of Jafar was released on VHS video tape in the United States? I didn’t but watching Disney clips on YT I came across Forget About Love and suddenly realized that this year the film excited 20 decades already.

Disney’s Aladdin Screenshot Comparisons DVD vs BD

In the forum at Blu-Ray.com is a thread that puts side by side screenshots of the DVD, scaled up DVD and BD of Disney classics.
Check the difference in sharpness and clarity between the 2004 DVD and the recently released European DB of Aladdin. I would say a difference between day and night. Wow! Unfourtnelty for the US fans it seems they’ll have to wait until 2015 when an BD American release in scheduled.
