Did you know that Aladdin is 20? {Giveaway CLOSED}

GIVEAWAY CLOSED - Winners: Mary P and Theressa

Walt Disney Studios Australia is proud to announce the release of Aladdin, one of the most beloved animated films of all time.

Aladdin @ SameliasMum

The year was 1992. I was in high school. I remember heading to my local Hoyts cinema complex, with my friend Sonia, to see this film. Ahhh memories… it seems like it was only yesterday that I was a young thing hanging out with my friends, but it’s been over 20 years since it was first released.

My kids love this film. Over this past weekend, we sat and watched our review copy of Aladdin, with a huge bowl of popcorn.

After the film, there was a lot of discussion about what we’d choose if we had free wishes from a genie.

Personally, I think Princess Jasmine is my favourite Princess. I’ll tell you a little secret - I loved the name Jasmine and always thought that if I had a daughter, I’d call her Jasmine… but my cousin had a daughter first and called her daughter Jasmin.

If my little lady has her way, her first child will be called either Pinky Pie (My Little Pony) or Rapunzel – be it a girl, OR a boy!


Released from the Disney vault, this timeless classic is sure to impress the entire family, with Academy Award winning music, unforgettable characters and laugh out loud comedy.

Aladdin is a magical adventure, filled with nonstop action and thrills. Set in Agrabah, a thriving town ruled by the Sultan, who sets out on a quest to find his daughter, Princess Jasmine a suitable Prince to marry.

However, when she comes face to face with street urchin, Aladdin, a whole new world is created.

The street smart thief Aladdin has no idea how much his life is going to change when he is lured by the evil Jafar into retrieving a magic lamp out of the Cave or Wonders. When Aladdin and his monkey Abu discover a wisecracking Genie inside the lamp, they realise the world is now their playground.

Full of laughs, chaos, romance and adventure, Disney’s Aladdin will create magical memories that will last a lifetime. Available to own on DVD and Blu-Ray 27 March 2013.
