 [Add Behind the Scenes Video]

 

It is arguably the late Robin William's finest performance: Genie, in the now-classic Disney animated film, Aladdin. You know the story (Boy finds lamp with Genie inside it; Boy mucks up three wishes the Genie provides; Boy redeems himself with selfless act, saves the day, frees the Genie, and gets the Girl as well), so we won't spend much time on that here.

 

Instead, we'll tell you that Disney's tricked-out "Diamond Edition" on Blu-ray has a ton of extras that'll probably make it worth your while to add this extra copy of Aladdin to your family's collection. In here you'll find:
