Storyline

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 Blazer346

Trivia

The Islamic cultural setting of the film is directly referenced several times throughout the film. For instance: the Sultan yells "Praise Allah!" when he realizes that Jasmine wants to marry Prince Ali/Aladdin; the Sultan says "Allah forbid you have any daughters!" when he is frustrated with Jasmine; and Gazeem at the beginning says "By Allah!" when he sees The Cave of Wonders. Although it isn't stated, the mentions of Allah imply that the religion in Aragabah is Islam, since that is the way Muslims address God. See more »

Great songs and a good villain make "Aladdin" a Disney classic.
23 October 2004 | by (Groningen, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie has three elements that are important for an animated Disney movie: Great songs, a good villain and a great sidekick.

The songs and music in general are just great and very memorable. Jafar is a great villain mainly because he is voiced by Jonathan Freeman who has got a good and scary voice. But what is maybe the best element of the movie is Robin Williams as the blue genie. The blue genie is like a jokemachine that once it is started can't stop again and keeps you laughing.

The story is good and the pace is high. "Aladdin" is not too short and it's not too long, it's not too immature and it's not too mature, it's a perfect movie for the entire family with a wonderful love story (even though it's no "Beauty and the Beast") and good animations with some good looking early computer effects.

9/10
