The anticipation is building for the release of “Aladdin” on Blu-ray for the first time on October 13th. It is not just the movie that your family will fall in love with all over again but also the bonus features.

One of the bonus features was created to be a tribute to Robin Williams. The animators listened to the many hours of recordings from when Robin Williams worked on the film, and then made a short using his voice to create “The Genie Outtakes.” While watching the bonus feature with my children, the genie came back to life, and I couldn’t help but cry at the ending. If you’re a fan of Robin Williams, then you’ll not want to miss watching this special animation short.

Along with a tribute to Robin Williams, there is also a funny “Genie 101” hosted by the voice of the Genie, Scott Weinger. While I love watching films, I am also very curious to learn about how they come to life. The bonus feature of “Unboxing Aladdin” will show your family the hidden secrets of the movie with Disney Channel’s very own Joey Bragg.

Families don’t have to wait for the Blu-ray bonus features to go behind-the-scenes of the film. The directors of the film, John Musker and Ron Clements just released this special video for fans of Aladdin to enjoy watching.

Don’t miss watching the Genie coming back to life by getting your copy of Aladdin on Blu-ray for the first time on October 13th.
