The animated Disney movie Aladdin was released in November 1992.
About The Film
Aladdin is based on the folktale 'Aladdin And The Magic Lamp' from One Thousand And One Nights (also known in English as the Arabian Nights). The story follows Aladdin and his pet parrot Abu in their adventures involving a genie, a magic carpet, an evil magician, and a princess. Aladdin was the thirty-first film in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series, after Beauty And The Beast and before The Lion King.
Aladdin was released on VHS in 1993, and on DVD in 2004. The film entered the 'Disney Vault' in 2008, meaning that production of the film would be suspended for a set amount of time. Disney claim that this process allows them to control their market and ensures that the films will remain fresh and exciting for each new generation of children.
Aladdin is set to leave the Disney Vault in Spring 2013, when it will be released as a Diamond Edition on Blu-ray.
