* FakeBrit: Jonathan Freeman as Jafar. Who, like everyone else in the movie, is technically supposed to be Arabian, but was portrayed a [[EvilBrit villainous British accent]] anyway.

* ScrewedByTheLawyers: Disney began arranging plans for a live-action Genie prequel as an origin story which would take place before the LiveActionAdaptation of the film, but it got locked away thanks to a clause in Robin Williams' will. His estate informed the company the clause bars any further usage of voice recordings and likenesses that had not been already made available to the public for 25 years after his death, meaning Disney cannot move forward with using Williams's likeness until August 11, 2039. Disney also had plans to make a third sequel with unused Robin Williams recordings, but it ended up being scrapped for the same reason.

Not to mention having Creator/WillSmith portraying the Genie in the new live-action adaptation makes it useless to have a prequel with him being portrayed by Williams, anyway. Disney also had plans to make a third sequel with unused Robin Williams recordings, but it ended up being scrapped for the same reason.

* 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]]
