** 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?

* UnfortunateImplications: The movie came [[http://articles.latimes.com/1993-07-10/entertainment/ca-11747_1_altered-lyric under fire]] by the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee for the infamous lyric "Where they cut off your ear if they don't like your face" in "Arabian Nights". The line was changed to "Where it's flat and immense and the heat is intense".

** [[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 spire 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''.

* MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzales: Yes it's a very [[{{Disneyfication}} Disneyfied]] take on Arabian mythos, but that didn't stop Arabs from enjoying the film. Recently, many people of Arabic descent have praised Aladdin for offering positive portrayal of Middle Eastern people rather than depicting them as only terrorists and savages.

** The Swedish dub eventually became this. In this dub Jafar is voiced by Mikael Samuelsson who originated the role of Theatre/ThePhantomOfTheOpera in Sweden and Aladdin is voiced by Peter Jöback who as of 2011 has played the Phantom on West End and on Broadway. While performing it in London one of the actresses playing Christine against Jöback also voiced Jasmine (though not in the Swedish dub).
