Disney's Aladdin (live-action) and Aladdin Signature Collection


We actually had the pleasure of watching the new Aladdin while it was in theaters. So I can tell you my opinions from a first hand perspective about it. There were similarities of course between the two movies and there were differences too. The basic story-line was the same, but how it flowed was a little different. On the overall though we really enjoyed the "live-action" adaptation. And Will Smith was the best genie there could have been. I'm super excited about owning both the original and the new versions so I can share them with future generations to come!

Disney's "Aladdin," the thrilling and vibrant live-action adaptation of the studio's animated classic, has landed in homes on Digital in HD, 4K Ultra HD™ and Movies Anywhere, and physically on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™ and DVD. Fans of all ages can enjoy the exciting, humorous tale of the lovable “street rat,” Aladdin (Mena Massoud), courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott) and the larger-than-life Genie (Will Smith) with all-new bonus features. The release of the live-action adventure coincides with the addition of the original animated classic to the highly celebrated Walt Disney Signature Collection  —  granting “Aladdin” fans everywhere the opportunity to own both magical movies.

Extras explore elements of “Aladdin” that audiences adore, from the film’s treasured, iconic award-winning music to its beloved characters and their hilarious antics on and off screen. Viewers get the first look at an all-new song “Desert Moon,” deleted from the final film, written by eight-time Academy Award® winning composer Alan Menken and Oscar®-and Tony Award®-winning songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (“The Greatest Showman,” “La La Land”). Features document Guy Ritchie’s joyful, easy-going approach to directing that led to movie magic; Will Smith’s fresh take on the infamous shape-shifting blue entity confined to an oil lamp; Naomi Scott’s powerful performance as the spirited princess who yearns to lead the people of Agrabah; and the indescribable feeling of playing Aladdin chronicled personally by Mena Massoud. Deleted scenes and a blooper reel round out the fun.

“Aladdin” is sure to become an instant classic for viewers of all ages and will be packaged several ways to ensure the entire family gets the most out of its in-home entertainment experience.

The release of the live-action adventure coincides with the addition of the original animated classic to the highly celebrated Walt Disney Signature Collection, granting Aladdin fans everywhere the opportunity to own both magical movies. In 4K for the first time, the new release features all new bonus content, including alternate endings!

Take back your counter with the Modernhome 8Qt Air Fryer Oven

If you're kitchen is anything like mine then you know what limited counter space looks like. And how frustrating it is when it quickly fills up with all of those "must have" appliances. You know those trendy things like toaster ovens and air fryers? Those things we swear we are going to utilize, but then they end up sitting on the counter taking up valuable space and only getting used a couple times a month. That was the first thing that initially drew me to my new Modernhome 8Qt Air Fryer Oven. The ability to turn that wasted counter space into something useful and a less cluttered space. By switching to this new appliance I was able to get rid of both my toaster oven and my over-sized air fryer. Not only does it perform the functions of both of the appliances I got rid of, it can do even more! And it takes up a ton less space leaving me more counter room for prepping food. No more moving appliances from one place to another to get space for this girl!

Charleston Chew Vanilla Nougat Hot Cocoa to the Rescue!

At our house hot cocoa is considered a grocery list staple year round to my daughter. She will drink it even when it's 90 outside and the rest of us are enjoying a glass of well...something ice cold. I grew up enjoying hot cocoa in the winter months on special occasions so I'm not quite in sync with her views. At any rate keeping it on hand and ready at a moments notice is super easy thanks to Tootsie Roll Industries. They have an awesome line-up of hot cocoa flavors that you may  have never seen before. So far we are loving the two we've gotten to try. First up for us was their Charleston Chew Vanilla Nougat Hot Cocoa. There's actually three flavors in the Charleston Chew line-up that you can choose from: chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. We opted for the vanilla because it sounded like a good combination with the chocolate cocoa flavor. And I am happy to say we were right. This stuff is so smooth and creamy I just might rethink only enjoying cocoa in the cooler months!
