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
During the mid-1990s, a rumor began that alleged that during the balcony scene, Aladdin says, "Good teenagers, take off your clothes" when he encounters Rajah. This was one of many accusations by moral groups during that period which tried to prove that Disney was subliminally promoting sexual promiscuity in its films. The film's directors insists that Aladdin is actually saying, "Nice kitty, take off and go, go on." One Disney animator, Tom Sito, backed up this statement by stating that the people responsible for helming the scene are deeply religious and would never deliberately add such racy humor. All subsequent copies of the film cut the line entirely to avoid any further controversy. See more »

You're a prisoner?
It's all part and parcel, the whole genie gig.

Phenomenal cosmic powers!

Itty bitty living space!

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.
