Week 2 Bonus Post: Aladdin (1992)

Image

Of all the Disney movies I’ve watched, this is one I come back to over and over. It is far and above one of my all-time favourites. It’s pure Disney magic the whole way through – from Aladdin running from the guards to the Cave of Wonders and that memorable magic carpet ride. I may have seen it in theaters as a child – can’t quite remember for sure. Here’s what I do know: I had a matchy-matchy Aladdin sweatsuit as a child. I watched almost every episode of the Aladdin TV show. My friend, Joanne, and I spent hours upon hours playing the Super Nintendo Aladdin video game.

All that being said, Aladdin is one step ahead of the average Disney movie for me…

 Quotable Quotes:

Look at that! I’m so ticked off that I’m molting!

If I were as rich as you, I could afford some manners.

Phenomenal cosmic powers! Itty bitty living space…

That’s Sultan Vile Betrayer to you!

Jafar, Jafar, he’s our man. If he can’t do it … GREAT!

 Final Thoughts: It really is what’s inside that counts. And even more importantly – a friend always keeps his word.
