Synopsis

Those looking for adventure need go no further than this dazzling fantasy. Ahmad, the King of Bagdad, is betrayed by his chief minister, Jaffar, and thrown into prison where he befriends a young thief called Abu. The two convicts escape, but Ahmad crosses paths with Jaffar again when they compete for the affection of a princess. Jaffar uses his magic to get the upper hand, leaving Ahmad and Abu to rely on their wits, a flying carpet and a giant genie to save the princess and restore Ahmad to his rightful position. It's as spectacular as it sounds and the Oscar-winning special effects still look fabulous.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
