Customers Review: If you don’t have either movies then this is a great deal. You get a bluray copy of both of the movies and a single code that puts both of them on your Movies Anywhere account. The picture may not show the case saying BlueRay + Digital at the top, but it states it on the movie sleeve that the case is in. So I can testify that it truly is the disks + digital code.

Customers review: I love Will Smith. I thought this movie would suck in light of the past animated version with Robin William’s as the voice of the genie. In fact it was colorful and fun. Naomi Scott as Jasmine was great. She is so beautiful and wow what a set of pipes on that kid. She can really sing! Good family fun. May have some scary spots for the little ones. I am thinking 9 and under.
