Moving to Disc 2 and the extras are split into two main groups, Games and Activities and Backstage Disney. As you would expect the Games area contains several interactive activities for the kids and as such (even though I am a big kid at heart) I didn't review this section in any detail. Moving to the Backstage area and you are presented with two featurettes, "A Diamond in the Rough: The Making of Aladdin," & "Alan Menken: Musical Renaissance Man," which run at 2 hours and at 20minutes respectively. The making of documentary covers all areas of the production, from the not so successful first cut through to the finished article with interviews from the cast and crew. This is also chaptered for ease. The Alan Menken feature covers the process of writing the music and lyrics for the many songs featured in the movie. Rounding up the extras are art galleries, production stills, interviews and trailers. Overall the extras are as comprehensive as you would expect and certainly worthy of viewing at least once.
Aladdin is a Disney classic which is given the best DVD presentation possible with some very good extras, recommended.
