Disney’s newest remake, Aladdin, is set to release digitally on August 27, and on Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD on September 10! Owners of the home release of the Disney live-action movie will gain exclusive access to various extras as Disney stated in a recent press release:
“Viewers get the first look at an all-new song ‘Desert Moon,’ deleted from the final film, written by eight-time Academy Award® winning composer Alan Menken and Oscar®-and Tony Award®-winning songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (The Greatest Showman, La La Land).”
I really enjoyed Aladdin not only as a Disney movie but as a musical too! That’s why ‘Desert Moon’ has me even more excited for this home release. There will also be a lot of special features included in the extras as well:
“Features document Guy Ritchie’s joyful, easy-going approach to directing that led to movie magic; Will Smith’s fresh take on the infamous shape-shifting blue entity confined to an oil lamp; Naomi Scott’s powerful performance as the spirited princess who yearns to lead the people of Agrabah; and the indescribable feeling of playing Aladdin chronicled personally by Mena Massoud.”
All of this behind the scenes footage sounds very interesting to me. When I saw Aladdin, I thought that Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott stole the show! Additionally, this home release will include deleted scenes, and of course, bloopers!
What are you most excited for in this Blu-ray and digital release? Let me know in the comments below!
