If Disney decided to release one of their animated classics untampered with, it would be a red-letter event. Sadly that’s not the case as Buena Vista Home Entertainment releases an “enhanced” version of Aladdin this fall.
Part of the Platinum Collection, the new Aladdin will updated as more than 20% of the original artwork has been enhanced, with some characters redrawn to add more facial detail, and backgrounds in many scenes have been touched up for color and detail..
Extras on the set have not been completely nailed down, but announced features include a deleted song called “Proud of Your Boy” set to newly produced animation, two audio commentaries, a virtual carpet ride a 3-D tour of Genie’s lamp, games an option for pop-up trivia presented during the film, musical postcards, sing-along songs and a new pop-version music video of “A Whole New World”.
Aladdin will arrive on October 5th.
