  • A young poor boy named Aladdin falls in love with a beautiful princess named Jasmine. He wants to impress her, but he's not fancy and rich so when an old merchant (Jafar in disguise) tells him about a magic lamp Aladdin goes to the cave of wonders and gets it. There he meets Genie and Carpet and Aladdin realizes with the Genie he can get Jasmine so his first wish is to become a prince which dosen't impress Jasmine, then Jafar tells the guards to drown Aladdin so saving his life is his second wish, and Aladdin gets a little sidetracked with his third wish which fits perfectly in Jafar's plans. Because of Aladdin's irresponsibility Jafar gets ahold of the lamp and makes Jasmine and the Sultan his slaves, but Aladdin bounces back and tricks Jafar into becoming a genie. After all this Aladdin finally tells Jasmine that he likes her and she likes him too, and that's where our story begins....moreless

    • Razoul: (catches Aladdin again) We just keep running into each other. Don't we, Street Rat?

    • A Whole New World Aladdin: I can show you the world; Shining, Shimmering, Splendid. Tell me, princess, now when did you last let your heart decide? I can open your eyes! Take you wonder, by wonder: Over, sideways and under on a magic carpet ride! A whole new world, a new fantastic point of view, no one to tell us no, or where to go, or say we're only dreaming... Jasmine: A whole new world! A dazzling place I never knew, but when I'm way up here, its crystal clear, that now I'm in a whole new world with you. (Aladdin(Accompanying): Now I'm in a whole new world with you!) Unbelievable sights... (bird squawks in shock) indescribable feelings, soaring tumbling free-wheeling through and endless diamond sky! A whole new world... (Aladdin (Accompanying): Don't you dare close your eyes...) A hundred thousand things to see (Aladdin (Accompanying): Hold your breath if its better!) I'm like a shooting star, I've come so far, and I can't go back to where I used to be, (Aladdin (Accompanying): A whole new world...) every turn a surprise. Aladdin: With new horizons to pursue... Aladdin and Jasmine: I'll chase them anywhere, there's time to spare, let me share this whole new world with you... Aladdin: A whole new world... Jasmine: A whole new world... Aladdin: A thrilling chase... Jasmine: A wondrous place... Aladdin and Jasmine: For you and me...

    • Genie: So what'll it be, master? Aladdin: You're gonna grant me any 3 wishes I want, right? Genie: (imitating William F. Buckley) Uh, ah, almost. There are a few, uh, provisos. Ah, a couple of quid pro quo. Aladdin: Like? Genie: (normally) Uh, rule #1, I can't kill anybody. (cuts his head off) So don't ask. A-rule #2! (fixes his head) I can't make anybody fall in love with anybody else. (smooches Aladdin) You little punim there. RULE #3!! (turns into a slimy Genie, and imitating Peter Lorre) I can't bring people back from the dead. It's not a pretty picture. I DON'T LIKE DOING IT!!! (he returns to normal) Genie: Other than that, you got it!

    • Aladdin: Provisos? You mean limitations? On wishes? Some all-powerful Genie. He can't even bring people back from the dead. I don't know, Abu. He probably can't even get us out of this cave. Looks like we're gonna have to find a way out of here. (Genie stomps his foot) Genie: (imitating Robert DeNiro) 'Xcuse me? Are you lookin' at me? Did you rub my lamp? Did you wake me up? Did you bring me here? And all of a sudden, you're walkin' out on me?! I don't think so! Not right now! (points his right index finger, screaming) YOU'RE GETTIN' YOUR WISHES, SO SIT DOWN!!!!!! (Aladdin and Abu sit down on the carpet, and Genie takes a seat there as well) Genie: (as a flight attendant) In case of emergency, the exits are (multiplies his arms, pointing each index finger outside the carpet) here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, (stops) ANYWHERE! (arms return to 2) Keep your hands and arms inside the carpet! (the carpet rockets up in hyperspeed) Genie: WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE'RRRRRRE... (the carpet pops out of the cave with the passengers aboard and flies back to Agrabah) Genie: OUTTA HERE!!!

    • Aladdin: (singing) Riffraff. Street rat. I don't buy that. If only they'd look closer, would they see a poor boy? No, siree. They'd find out... there's so much more... to me.

    • In preview screenings for the movie, nobody was applauding after the big song numbers. The animators wanted applause and therefore somebody stuck the Genie with an "Applause sign" at the end of "Friend Like Me." The joke worked and the "Applause sign" was kept.

    • Not only is the plot similar to The Thief of Baghdad, but character names Jafar and Abu were apparently borrowed from the script by Biro Lajos. The characters in the silent original, The Thief of Baghdad, were not given names.

    • The lyrics of the opening song, "Arabian Nights", were changed for the video release due to pressure from groups who were offended by the original lyrics. The original lyrics were: "Where they cut off your ear if they don't like your face." The new lyrics are: "Where it's flat and immense and the heat is intense".

    Trivia (6)

    • On the carpet ride, Aladdin and Jasmine fly past a full moon. A moment later, they see a half moon reflected in the water.

    • Although the script on the scrolls appears to be Arabic, the Sultan and Jafar's eyes move from left to right as they read it, not right to left as they should have.

    • When Jasmine first went into the market place and the guy tried to cut off her hand for stealing, Aladdin stopped him and gave the sword to Jasmine. She then put it behind her back but, when she bowed to Abu she didn't have it.

    • When growled at by Raja, Aladdin says "Good tiger, take off and go," but everyone thought that he said "Good teenager, take off your clothes."

    • Why is it that Jasmine is angry at Aladdin when he is pretending to be Ali and she discovers the truth? When Jafar told her that Aladdin had been killed she had been crying her eyes out. But when she realizes Ali is actually Aladdin she gets angry at his trying to deceive her. If she had been crying over him earlier, she would have been more like "Oh....You weren't killed after all!" instead of "Why did you lie to me!?"
