Aladdin was one of my favorite Disney films as a child. There was just something about the street rat, and of course, the Princess, and the carpet, and oh yeah, “A Whole New World,” that absolutely captivated me. I knew every song to the soundtrack, and I’m quite sure if I played it now, I still would.
Which is why I was so excited about the original novel Aladdin: Far From Agrabah, which is set in the world of the upcoming live-action Aladdin film, which will be in theaters May 24th. And to get you excited too, Disney Book Group is partnering with us for a giveaway of the book, which is out today. You can purchase the book HERE.
Look at the pretty cover! Just look at it!
We’re a sucker for a good cover. And also, for the whole idea of visiting new worlds. What new world would you visit if you could pick one? I’m thinking I wouldn’t be comfortable as a woman in Aladdin’s time, sorry not sorry, but I’d love to go to Arandelle. They have a female ruler, after all! Plus Elsa can control the weather, which is always a plus.
But back to the book, and Aladdin. Today, we’re giving you a chance to win the prize pack at the top, all you have to do is enter here:
