Ahead of the release of Disney Studio’s hotly anticipated live-action remake of the cult-classic Aladdin, directed by Guy Ritchie and starring Will Smith in the role of the Genie, we’re helping you explore a whole new world, with some stunning collectables and figurines, inspired by the 1992 feature-length animated film.
With the 2019 release of the movie billed as the thrilling and vibrant live-action adaptation of the animated classic, telling the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine, along with the Genie who holds the key to their future, these pieces are sure to have fans of the franchise taking flight on a magical carpet ride with excitement.
You can now add Aladdin to your collection – a former street-rat turned Prince Ali Ababwa thanks to the help of his friend, the Genie of the Lamp – and his love interest, the Sultan’s daughter – Princess Jasmine. Featuring the iconic Disney Prince and Princess, this piece from Enchanting Disney captures the moment the pair fall in love as they soar across the skies to the soundtrack of A Whole New World.
Of course, none of this would be possible without the Genie, voiced by the late and great Robin Williams. Now you can take a little piece of magic home with this Born Showman figurine from Disney Traditions By Jim Shore. Using Shore’s iconic American folk inspired style with quilting patterns throughout, the piece shows the Genie with top hat and cane in hand, as if performing the musical number from Friend Like Me.
True Disney Fans will know that Genie is freed from the lamp after Aladdin and his monkey side-kick, Abu, enter the cave of wonders and rub the dusty old lamp. Thanks to this piece from Enchanting Disney, you can immortalise that moment from the movie in your Disney collection. The ‘Mischievous Thief’ figurine depicts Abu, complete with his little red waistcoat, poised with the lamp in his hand, eyes wide as if about to get up to some serious mischief once the Genie is released from his itty-bitty space.
Naturally, with all good stories, there’s always a villain of the piece too. If you’re someone who prefers the darker side of the movie, you can take home a slither of sorcery, thanks to this piece, also from Enchanting Disney.
‘O’ Mighty Evil One’ features Jafar – the Grand Vizier of Agrabah, the Sultan’s most trusted advisor yet unbeknownst evil sorcerer – standing in a menacing pose, with his enchanted staff in hand, and Iago – his sidekick talking parrot – perched on his shoulder.
Finally, as with all Disney films, true love conquers all and the heroes of the piece find their happily ever after. Romance takes flight is the perfect piece to capture Jasmine and Aladdin’s happily ever after. This piece truly captures the story of the film, with the figurine taking the shape of an open book and its inner pages depicting the balcony scene from the movie, where Aladdin asks Prince Jasmine ‘Do you trust me?’, as they set off on their magical carpet ride.
