Trivia

Though loosely based on the original short story from Arabian Nights, many plot elements are created just for the film, such as Jafar's desire for Jasmine, framing Aladdin for a crime and having him imprisoned, Aladdin meeting another prisoner (actually Jafar) who helps break him out of prison and tells him of a hidden treasure, Aladdin using the treasure (the lamp) to falsely portray himself as a prince, and to take revenge on Jafar. These plot elements are all quite similar to the plot of Alexandre Dumas's novel The Count of Monte Cristo. Appropriately, the novel itself makes reference to the Arabian Nights several times, like when the treasure of Monte Cristo is compared to that of Ali Baba, the cave in which it is hidden is compared to the one in Aladdin, and the protagonist, Edmond Dantes, calls himself Sinbad the Sailor at one point.

Goofs

In the scene with Jafar as a snake, he is told by Aladdin that the Genie has more power than he will ever have, "He gave you your powers, he could take them away". Jafar as snake replies, "You're right, his power does exceed my own". After Jafar says this, watch his mouth as he speaks the next few lines of dialog. His lower set of teeth begin to vanish on camera. This happens when his face is filling the screen for a great view of his vanishing then missing teeth. See more »

Crazy Credits

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 »

Alternate Versions

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 »

Great songs and a good villain make "Aladdin" a Disney classic.
23 October 2004 | by Boba_Fett1138See 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
