BLU-RAY REVIEW & GIVEAWAY — “Aladdin” (2019) and “Aladdin” Signature Collection

Shining. Shimmering. Splendid. Wishes do come true as Disney’s charming live-action “Aladdin” lands on Digital on August 27 and Blu-ray and DVD on September 10. The exciting, humorous tale of the lovable “street rat,”Aladdin (Mena Massoud), courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott) and the larger-than-life Genie (Will Smith) with all-new bonus features including deleted scenes, exclusive songs, and a blooper reel.

The home arrival of the thrilling 2019 adaptation coincides with the re-release of the 1992 animated classic “Aladdin” and its addition to the highly celebrated Walt Disney Signature Collection. Now fans everywhere can the own both magical movies in stunning 4K Ultra HD.

Director Guy Ritchie’s joyful, easy-going adaptation features extras that explore elements of “Aladdin” that audiences adore, from the film’s treasured, iconic award-winning music to its beloved characters and their hilarious antics on and off screen.
