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
Brad Kane was originally going to do speaking voice for Aladdin, too, but was given to Scott Weinger at the last minute. Kane later did the singing voice for Aladdin. See more »
As Prince Ali and Jasmine begin their "Magic Carpet Ride", they have just cleared the wall of the palace walls by crossing over the top of the front palace grounds gate. Immediately on the other side of the wall are several towers and turrets. One is particularly tall and pointed, just over the wall, next to the gate. The architecture has become much more rich and varied. We have seen many long shots looking at the palace head on. There are no turrets and towers anywhere near the Palace, and the buildings in the area in front of the palace are mostly low, simple and plain adobe buildings. See more »

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 »
I think this is one of the funniest films that Disney has ever done. This is due entirely to Robin William's brilliant voice of the Genie. He is wonderful in this role. I think the animation is pretty fair although I dislike the "generic" people that Disney's shop is putting out these days. They all share the same basic facial structure and eyes, so there is not much difference between any of the characters. It's not like Sleepy, Doc and Sneezy, who all looked very different. Still, this is a great and funny film. It is totally clean and not very violent so it is appropriate for every member of the family. Give this one a try and you'll have a great time watching it!
