For a number of reasons, it took me a while to see the 2019 Disney live-action Aladdin. It’s out on Blu-Ray and digital now though, and my family and I had a great time celebrating the release. Check out how we marked the occasion with some beautiful jewelry like Jasmine’s… and what kind of special features you can see when you watch Aladdin at home!
Special Features on Disney’s 2019 Aladdin
“Speechless”: Creating a Song for Jasmine
At the recent D23 Expo in Anaheim, we got to hear a little about how the film creators wanted a new song for Jasmine… and how the smash hit “Speechless” cam to be. Follow the story this new number, written by Alan Menken, Benj Pasek, and Justin Paul.
Aladdin’s Video Journal: A New Fantastic Point of View
Watch behind-the-scenes moments captured by Mena Massoud (Aladdin) in this fun, fast-paced look at his personal journey during the filming of the movie.
Deleted Song: “Desert Moon”
Another perk of being at the D23 Expo in August was seeing the debut of this beautiful song. The video we were treated to there is available now – performed by Jasmine and Aladdin, fully shot and edited, with an introduction by creator Alan Menken.
Guy Ritchie: Cinematic Genie
Discover why director Guy Ritchie was the perfect filmmaker to tackle this exhilarating reimagining of a beloved 1990s animated classic.
A Friend Like Genie
The incomparable Robin Williams made Aladdin‘s Genie a character that will never be forgotten. I can only imagine how difficult it was for filmmakers to figure out how to take this character in a new direction – honoring the work Robin Williams did without trying to “redo” it. Discover how Will Smith brings talent, experience and his own personal magic to the role.
