Aladdin: Platinum Edition - UK Region 2 Review

We now have our full, detailed review of the October 4th UK release of Aladdin: Platinum Edition here, the set looks to be virtually identical to the US release content-wise.

Aladdin represents a milestone in Disney's return to the top in animated film making after a lacklustre 80's, and belongs in every collection. Ron Clements, John Musker, Alan Menken, Tim Rice and the late Howard Ashman got together a supremely talented group of performers and artists to build on the groundwork laid by The Little Mermaid and Beauty And The Beast in bringing the Disney magic back to the screen, ironically with an anarchic film that is often as far from the Disney style as you could imagine.

This DVD set is superb, and one of the most in depth looks at animation I've seen. We get to see early concepts, rough animation, reference footage, deleted footage, and more, though most importantly we get to see the often unsung people who actually did all the work long after the actors had cashed their pay cheques. The lack of any input from Robin Williams is a shame, but otherwise the extras on these discs give you just about everything you need to know.
