* ScrewedByTheNetwork: The IMAX version of ''Disney/TheLionKing'' had a preview for a large-format version of ''Aladdin'' attached to its run. Unfortunately, the low grosses of IMAX DAC movies[[note]]before ''TLK'', Disney released ''Disney/TreasurePlanet'', the ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' Special Extended Edition, and ''Disney/Fantasia2000'' in this format[[/note]] prompted Disney to cancel ''Aladdin'''s engagement (the remastered animation was eventually used for the DVD release). Similar circumstances later turned it into the only one of the Renaissance's four most famous movies without a 3D conversion; while Disney never actually announced one in the works, the failures of those of ''Beauty and the Beast'' and some TurnOfTheMillennium Creator/{{Pixar}} movies[[note]]They failed so badly, that the ''[[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Little Mermaid]]'' conversion, which Disney ''did'' announce, went straight to Blu-ray 3D.[[/note]] guaranteed that ''Aladdin'' wouldn't get one (it's the one Diamond Edition film from the Disney Renaissance/Wells/Katzenberg/Roy era to not have a 3D Blu-ray; the other Diamond Editions from that era are the Diamond Editions with a 3D Blu-ray).

** The Peddler who tells the tale is voiced by Robin Williams. One idea was that when freed, Genie would become the Peddler. It must have been thrown out late, because they have similar clothing, facial hair and even faces. This was passed over because... well, ''because''.[[note]] In October 2015, directors John Musker and Ron Clements ''officially confirmed'' that the Peddler is indeed the Genie. [[/note]]

** The Peddler who tells NarratorAllAlong: An unused alternate ending features the tale is peddler telling the story suddenly turning into the Genie before the credits roll. Not technically confirmed in the film itself, but both of them '''were''' still voiced by Robin Williams. One idea was that when freed, Creator/RobinWilliams, and if you look closely, the peddler and the Genie would become the Peddler. It must both have been thrown out late, because they four fingers, while all the other human characters have five. They also have similar clothing, facial hair and even faces. This was passed over because... well, ''because''.[[note]] In October 2015, directors John Musker and Ron Clements ''officially confirmed'' that the Peddler is indeed the Genie. [[/note]]

* NonSingingVoice: Even though Scott Weinger (Aladdin) and Linda Larkin (Jasmine) are pretty decent singers, they did '''not''' sing for their respective characters. Brad Kane did Aladdin's singing while Lea Salonga did Jasmine's singing (Liz Callaway in the sequels).
** One that was oddly used for someone who ''did'' do his own singing in ''all other scenes''--''Robin Williams'' of all people. Even though Robin Williams also voices the Merchant (who [[WhatCouldHaveBeen was going to be revealed in the end to be the Genie]] before the scene was cut), he does ''NOT'' sing for him. Bruce Adler does the Merchant's singing.

** Aladdin was originally supposed to have a mother, as mentioned on several documentaries, being a character that lyricist Howard Ashman reportedly wanted. Her character and the original draft of the film got thrown out by studio chief Jeffrey Katzenberg during production, and Katzenberg also reportedly wanted the mom "[=86ed=]", calling her "a zero". This led to Aladdin being an orphan in the original film instead. This '''also''' led to Elliott and Rossio joining the writing team and the rest of the story being reworked. ''Aladdin'' was the second DisneyAnimatedCanon film in a row to get a ResetButton from Katzenberg; he also played this card on ''Beauty and the Beast'', and Ashman could not argue for the original draft this time due to his death (the meeting where Katzenberg hit the ResetButton, known to Disney animators as "Black Friday", happened a month after Ashman had already passed away from AIDS) [[note]] Katzenberg would be involved in a second "Black Friday" regarding ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' before he left Disney [[/note]].

** Originally, Jafar was the hot-headed one while Iago was the more quiet, subdued one, but it was quickly decided that Jafar losing his temper every few second would get old fast.
