Synopsis by Carrie Downes
Robert Carradine portrays Aladdin, the foolish boy who finds himself at odds with an evil magician (Leonard Nimoy), in love with a princess (Valerie Bertinelli), and in luck with the discovery of a mysterious lamp. James Earl Jones portrays the daunting genie in the lamp. This installment of Faerie Tale Theatre was directed by a then relatively unknown Tim Burton, who later went on to direct such imaginative and stylistic films as Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands.
