Set in the mythical city of Agrabah, the story follows a young street thief, Aladdin and his friend, Abu the monkey. Aladdin meets Jasmine, the beautiful daughter of the Sultan, and falls in love with her.

Meanwhile, the evil vizier, Jafar, wants to get his hands on a magic lamp to help his rise to power. He enlists the help of Aladdin to get the lamp from the Cave of Wonders. Aladdin finds the lamp and rubs it, and is surprised when a wisecracking Genie appears and grants him three wishes. The Genie grants Aladdin's wish to become a prince so he can woo Princess Jasmine, however, his deception fails to impress her.

As his true self, and with a little help from the Genie, Aladdin uses his courage and cunning to defeat Jafar, and wins the love of Jasmine.

[More facts]


Genie: Oi! Ten thousand years will give you such a crick in the neck.

Genie: Never fails. You get in the bath and there's a rub at the lamp.

Aladdin: Provisos? You mean limitations? On wishes? Some all-powerful Genie. Can't even bring people back from the dead. I don't know, Abu. He probably can't get us out of this cave. Looks like we'll have to find a way out of here.
Genie: Excuse me? Are you lookin' at me? Did you rub my lamp? Did you wake me up? Did you bring me here? And all of a sudden you're walking out on me? I don't think so, not right now. You're getting your wishes, so sit down!

Genie: Three, no substitutions, exchanges or refunds.

Sultan: Jafar, you vile betrayer.
Iago: That's Sultan Vile Betrayer to you.

It is not what outside, but what is inside that counts; A diamond in the rough.
Imagine if you had three wishes, three hopes, three dreams and they all could come true.


When Aladdin is transformed into Prince Ali, his reflection in the mirror shows the wrong arm held up.
When reflected in the steam, the flower in Jasmine's hair is shown on the wrong side.
When Jasmine is climbing the palace wall to leave her trouser leg is shown, but in a close up shot her leg is bare.
The script on the scrolls appears to be in Arabic and should be read from right to left, but Jafar and the Sultan's eyes move from left to right when reading it.
