Aladdin is a poor street urchin who spends his time stealing food from the marketplace in the city of Agrabah. His adventures begin when he meets a young girl who happens to be Princess Jasmine, who is forced to be married by her wacky yet estranged father. Aladdin's luck suddenly changes when he retrieves a magical lamp from the Cave of Wonders. What he unwittingly gets is a fun-loving genie who only wishes to have his freedom. Little do they know is that the Sultan's sinister advisor Jafar has his own plans for both Aladdin and the lamp.Written by
When the Sultan is building his Jenga-like stack of animals, the Beast from Beauty and the Beast (1991) can be seen for a moment. See more »
Throughout the movie, whenever Aladdin is dressed as the "Street Rat", he wears pants that are very baggy with a crotch below the knees. When Aladdin is prisoner in the dungeon, seated and shackled to the wall, his pants are like modern sweatpants with full legs and a regular crotch. They conveniently become more pants-like when necessary for running, jumping, Etc. See more »
They wanna make me Sultan. No, they wanna make Prince Ali Sultan. Without you, I'm just Aladdin.
Al, you won!
Because of you! The only reason anyone thinks I'm worth anything is because of you! What if they find out I'm not really a prince? What if Jasmine finds out? I'd lose her. Genie, I can't keep this up on my own! I... I can't wish you free.
Fine, I understand. After all, you've lied to everyone else. Hey, I was beginning to feel left out. Now, if you'll excuse me, Master...!

After the end credits roll, we hear Genie thanking the audience and telling them they've been wonderful. (Added for the Special Edition only) See more »
In the 2004 Platinum Edition release and current releases, in addition to some graphical enhancements, the ending credits are sped up to contain restoration credits. After the End Title Duet "A Whole New World" (Aladdin's Theme) is over and the credits are finished, Genie has an extra goodbye line over the closing logo. See more »
I did not care to see this movie, but I was such a big Robin Williams that I rented it long after it stopped playing in the theaters. From the first few scenes I was spellbound by the voices and the script.I can still mimmick nearly all of the Genie's themes as well as see myself play Aladdin in a live action version of this movie with Paula Abdul as Jasmine and John De Lancie as Jafar. Jasmine in this movie has the same sexual innocence as Ariel the Little Mermaid and Krysta of Fern Gully. The songs are infectious, especially "Friend Like Me" and "A Whole New World." The whole movie is one big roller coaster ride augmented by the raucous wit of Robin Williams and his own talent for mimmicry and improvisation. Ten Stars way up!
