* {{Squick}}: Jafar isn't particularly attractive on his own, but any scene where he puts advances on Jasmine makes him look even slimier, causing major squick! Even in the movie's own universe, Abu and Iago have a Squick noise at Jasmine and Jafar's kiss. Jasmine looks pretty grossed out as well during that.

Made even worse by the fact that Jasmine is possibly only fifteen or sixteen.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9h6cFsx_7dU&t=315s The Genie does not technically grant Aladdin his wish]]; or rather, he goes about it in a much more subtle and sophisticated way than it seems. Aladdin wishes to be a Prince to marry Jasmine, but as both he and the Genie note throughout he is not ''actually'' a prince, in spite of his newfound mountains of magical wealth, servants and royal clothes- he doesn't even have a country to be a prince ''of''. But he ''does'' become a Prince ''eventually'', since he ultimately marries Princess Jasmine which would (in theory, at least) raise him to the status of Crown Prince of Agrabah and sultan-in-waiting. This is FridgeBrilliance of the highest order and raises the Genie to the status of TheChessmaster and a DitzyGenius ''par excellence''.
* AwardSnub: There was some buzz about Robin Williams becoming the first voice actor to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. Unfortunately, that didn't happen.

* ValuesDissonance: This stands out amongst later Disney films based on non-American cultures. Disney [[ShownTheirWork does a lot of research]] into presenting the cultures accurately and respectfully. ''Aladdin'' on the other hand isn't a particularly accurate film and some aspects have been considered offensive (such as how "Arabian Nights" needed to be censored to remove some violent references). This wasn't a well-known issue in the early 1990s but in modern times the film would be written much differently. The LiveActionAdaptation will be more accurate.



* NewerThanTheyThink: Not part of the original Literature/ArabianNights tales, but added in the Antoine Galland's French translation of the book in 1710.

** When Jafar tried to wish that Jasmine would fall in love with him, was it because he was attracted to her? Or was it just a means of gaining his ultimate victory over her?

** Surprisingly, the Carpet is also one. It was even popular enough to have been made into a Xbox Live Avatar prop.

** Surprisingly, the Carpet is also one. It was even popular enough to have been made into a Xbox Live Avatar prop. It's become an icon in how to animate a character with a ton of personality despite their not having any lines or even facial features.

* AdaptationDisplacement: Did you know that in the [[Literature/{{Aladdin}} original tale]], Aladdin had ''unlimited wishes'' instead of just three? Or that he had a second genie in a magic ring? Chances are that you don't.

** Is Aladdin is a nice guy who simply uses a good thing to his advantage and falters from time to time only to do the right thing at the end or is he a selfish opportunist who lies and uses people to get his way and frees Genie because leaving him enslaved would break Aladdin's bond with Jasmine?
