In addition to the fantastic original film two of the highlights of this release are Robin William's Genie Outtakes, specially animated as a tribute to the actor, and a very special feature on the Broadway show!! I'll be honest, I have the UK release from 2013, I've ordered this just for those two features and I can't wait for it to arrive!!
Broadway World have a fantastic video interview with the cast of both that you just have to check out right here!
And make sure you check out Adam Jacobs, James Monroe Iglehart and Courtney Reed's Instagram accounts for plenty of incredible behind the scenes images of these two incredible casts meeting this week at the press event and at the show!
TheaterMania was also on hand to capture some excellent photos from the event.
To celebrate the release Aladdin's Don Darryl Rivera also shared an incredible picture of his original Aladdin VHS tape. Kept in his dressing room this video has been signed by everyone who has worked on Aladdin and visited the New Amsterdam Theatre to see the show. As Aladdin might say; "wow!"
To celebrate the release of #AladdinDiamondEdition I'm sharing one of my most prized possessions of Aladdin memorabilia: My VHS copy. I keep this in my dressing room because every person that has come to visit us at @aladdin on Broadway and also worked on the movie has signed this! Including: Lea Salonga, Linda Larkin, Scott Weinger, Brad Kane, Jonathan Freeman, John Musker, Ron Clements & Andreas Deja.
Now, after 24 years I only have one question left - just what was written on that lamp?!
