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
This was the second Disney animated feature to use fully-rendered and textured 3-D CGI-moving backgrounds in combination with the traditionally animated character animation, a technique that was expanded upon in the Disney short Off His Rockers (1992) and previously in Beauty and the Beast (1991). This led to the creation of "Deep Canvas," a brand-new technique created by Disney seven years later for use in Tarzan (1999), which allows 2-D hand-drawn characters to exist seamlessly in a fully 3-D environment.

During "Prince Ali" when Aladdin arrives in Agrabah at the Sultan's palace, Jafar can be seen trying to keep Aladdin out by holding the front door closed. When Aladdin's elephant (Abu in disguise) pushes the door open, we see Jafar being smashed into the wall behind the door. Then the scene cuts away to Jafar pushing the door away from his face. However, Iago is clearly smashed into the wall beside him despite not being around Jafar just seconds before the door flew open. See more »
["Snake" Jafar has Aladdin in a tight squeeze]
You little fool. You thought you could defeat the most powerful being on Earth.
Squeeze him, Jafar. Squeeze him like a- Awk!
[Genie elbows Iago and knocks him into the air]
Without the Genie, boy, you're nothing.
The Genie... The Genie! The Genie has more power than you'll ever have!
He gave you your power. He can take it away.
Al, what're you doing? Why are you bringing me into this?
Face it, Jafar. You're still just ...

Theatrical version for the opening Arabian Nights song originally had the lines "Where they cut off your ear, if they don't like your face". But the line was changed to "Where it's flat and immense, and the heat is intense." for all home video releases due to controversy from Arab groups who called the line racist. See more »
I grew up watching this film and along with Beauty and the Beast and Cinderella it is one of my favourite Disney films. I love it! Robin Williams is so good in it. He's hilarious. This film isn't just for kids but for the whole family. I think I was about 5 when I first saw it and at 14 I still watch it and so do my parents. I haven't seen the sequels because I heard that Robin Williams wasn't in them and decided that they wouldn't be as good without him. He was made for the part. The songs are amazing. I love singing along to "A Whole new World". I'm hoping to get the soundtrack soon. I also love the film because I have the same name as the princess in it! I would definitely recommend it to everyone. You're never too old to watch a classic Disney film.
