Aladdin (1992): Starring Robin Williams

Evoking in moments a sense of magic and wonder, “Aladdin,” the new Disney animated feature film appeals to children, the primary target audience, as well as the child in all of us adult viewers. 

Indeed, this version of the famous fables is not just about the boy who rubbed a magic lamp and got his wishes, but also about the pleasures of show business itself as a uniquely American institution, and who better to convey that sense that the all-American Disney.
The film is product of collaborative efforts of John Musker and Ron Clements, who served as producers, directors, and writers (Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio also worked on the final script).
Robin Williams lends his voice to the mercurial, motor-mouthed Genie, contributing to the modernist, cool feel of this classic fairy tale with his signature impersonations (Arnold Schwarzenegger and William Buckley, among others) and free-associative riffs.
As with most Disney’s animations, the lead characters are rather bland and it’s the supporting ones that add color, verve, and edge.
Nominated for five Oscars, “Aladdin” won two, including the song “Whole New World, which became a hit independently of the picture. (See below).
