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

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
