** FridgeBrilliance kicks in when you consider RobinWilliams almost quit the franchise, only to return... in time to do the reprise, and complete the framing device.



** The merchant at the beginning of the film also has four fingers. It's one of several hints about his true identity, but the idea didn't make the final cut. [[Creator/RobinWilliams But guess who did the voice of the merchant?]]

* VillainousCrush: Subverted. Jafar for Jasmine.hates Jasmine (presumably because he can't manipulate her easily), but Iago gives him the idea to marry her in order to give himself the political status needed to legally inherit the throne. Both of them make it very clear that once he marries her, they'll dispose of her and her father.

* AmbiguousReligions: The characters seem Ambiguously Muslim. The Sultan does shout "Praise Allah!" at one point - but it should be noted that "Allah" had previously been one of the Arabs' pagan gods, and is also used by Arab Christians and Jews to refer to God. The marriage ceremony in [[Disney/AladdinAndTheKingOfThieves the sequel]] also appears to be Christian in nature, which would be strange given the supposed time period. Also, the Cave of Wonders is guarded by a supernatural being that [[AllThereInTheScript the script refers to]] as a "tiger-god". And the magic-carpet ride around the world during the "A Whole New World" sequence implies that the action is taking place anywhere from a few centuries to over a millennium before the birth of Christ, never mind the rise of Islam. Ultimately, most of the ambiguity can be chalked up to a giant case of AnachronismStew.
