Aladdin, the clever hero of Agrabah, continues his adventures with the help of his fiancee Princess Jasmine, his pet monkey Abu, Magic Carpet, Iago the greedy parrot, and of course his best friend the semi-cosmic Genie.

A kind-hearted street urchin Aladdin vies for the love of the beautiful princess Jasmine, the princess of Agrabah.

He is also on a mission to stop the powerful Jafar who plots to steal the magic lamp that could make his deepest wishes come true.Written by
As the Genie is dressing Aladdin to become Prince Ali, he quietly suggests dressing him in periwinkle. This is likely a reference to another Guy Ritchie film, Snatch (2000), in which Brad Pitt's character agrees to take part in a rigged boxing match in exchange for a caravan for his mother. As part of the deal, it must be upholstered in 'periwinkle blue'. See more »
When Prince Ali's entourage sings the first line of "Make way for Prince Ali!" the green turban marchers suddenly have no flag staffs, and are marching with their arms swinging, then in the next scene are carrying their staffs again. See more »
While Aladdin has its moments, they are few. Almost uniformly, the cast lacks the acting and musical skills to recreate a story told well in both the animated film and Broadway show. Though Will Smith is no Robin Williams or James Monroe Iglehart, his reaction to Aladdin's third wish is moving. The flying carpet ride is a particularly joyless affair. The costumes are beautiful.
