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
Iago was originally intended to be voiced by Danny DeVito, but he was unavailable during production, so the role went to Gilbert Gottfried. DeVito would later star as the voice of Phil in Hercules (1997). See more »
Jafar is in the throne room on his knees before the Sultan while being questioned about the "Beheading" of Aladdin. While Jafar is in the kneeling position he is holding his snake headed staff next to him upright in his left hand. The length of the staff has become only about 3 feet high. When Jafar later stands up, it is restored to its original length. The staff can't fold up or telescope like a car antenna. It is shown to be solid and sturdy many times, notably when Jafar uses it to try to prevent the Sultan's Magic Carpet Ride around the Throne Room. Jafar pins the Magic Carpet down with a thud then Sultan forcefully kicks it away. See more »
[hypnotizing the Sultan with his snake staff]
You will order the Princess to marry me.
I... will order... the Princess... to...
[suddenly breaks out of the trance]
But you're so old!
[shoving his staff into the Sultan's face again]
The Princess *will* marry me!

The original 1992 theatrical release contained the line, "Good tiger, take off and go," which was spoken by Aladdin when Raja is growling at him. However, after the film was released on home video, many began to speculate that the line was actually, "Good teenagers take off their clothes," meant as a subliminal message. In the 2004 Platinum Edition release, this line was edited out due to controversey. It has been added back in the 2015 Diamond Edition release. See more »
Magic, adventures, laughs, love... This film has everything mixed, and the result is quite good! The film is about the classic tale of "Aladdin and the magic lamp", so the story is well known by everybody. Despite it is for children, the quality of the characters is very good, the story, though predictable and typical, results interesting and, which is more important, it males us to spend a good hour and a half. The songs (typical in Disney) never are boring, and are surprisingly well mixed with images. In addition, action scenes are well ended and most characters are very charismatic. Aladdin is sympathetic form the beginning and most secondary characters are simply perfect. The "acting" of the Genius is superb in his strangeness and absurd, and Yafar is well remembered as one of the "best" bad ones of the history of cinema. It exhales an immense aura of evilness hardly ever seen in a movie... To sum up, one of the best (maybe the best) Disney film made, which everything to have a nice afternoon with your children or just spending a nice time laughing and remembering when you were a child.
