Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
Walt Disney Pictures,

The Disney renaissance sparked by THE LITTLE MERMAID continued with this dazzling fantasy based on the Arabian Nights folktale. When street urchin Aladdin comes into possession of a magic lamp, he uses its power to woo a princess but runs afoul of the evil Grand Vizier. As the lamp’s wisecracking Genie, Robin Williams is at his stream-of-consciousness best (legendary animator Chuck Jones called this film "the funniest feature ever made” for good reason). Composer Alan Menken’s original score and song (“A Whole New World”) both earned Oscars.
