In celebration of the upcoming ALADDIN: DIAMOND EDITION release, Scott Weinger, the voice of Aladdin, hosted a special screening of the film at the Walt Disney Studios lot and WAMG was there for Sunday’s fun events.

There was a host of fun activities for kids – a coloring table, ring toss, belly dancing lessons and a nice pre-movie breakfast. Youngsters in attendance also left with gifts such as Disney action figures, the iconic fairy wings, and a special Golden Books edition of Aladdin.

For many of the kids in the audience, this was their first time seeing ALADDIN, including star Scott Weinger’s own son and his delighted friends, further confirming that this Disney classic holds up through generations.
