* ''Trivia/AladdinAndTheKingOfThieves''

!!Trivia in general:

* HeyItsThatVoice: Abis Mal is [[Series/{{Seinfeld}} George Costanza]]. Also counts under ActorAllusion as well, as he also acts as essentially an expy of the character in terms of mannerisms and personality.
** Iago is the Aflac Duck.
* TheOtherDarrin:
** Throughout the first sequel and the TV series, Genie is voiced by Creator/DanCastellaneta, before switching back to Creator/RobinWilliams in ''The King of Thieves'', and back again to Castellaneta in the ''KingdomHearts'' series.
** Sultan: Beats Genie by one in this trope.
*** Douglas Seale: First movie.
*** Val Bettin: Sequels and TV Series.
*** Creator/JeffBennett: More Than a Peacock Princess
** Jasmine keeps the same voice actress throughout the instalments (Linda Larkin). But her singing is done by Lea Salonga in the first film and Liz Callaway in the sequels.
** In Japan, after voicing him for years, AkiraKamiya retired Iago in 2001 (about the same time he retired [[FistoftheNorthStar Kenshiro]]. He's now voiced by ToruOkawa.

!![[Disney/{{Aladdin}} The original movie]]:

* [[WriteWhoYouKnow Animate Who You Know]]: Jasmine is based heavily on Mark Henn's (her leading animator) younger sister.
* CelebrityVoiceActor: The TropeCodifier for animated films, with Creator/RobinWilliams getting star billing.
* DuelingMovies: One of the most convoluted examples ever with Creator/RichardWilliams' ''TheThiefAndTheCobbler'', which had been in production for over two decades when this film's production started and was not released until long after this movie was completed and became a big hit, by which point the movie had been taking out of Williams' control, shipped off to overseas studios for rushed completion and drastically re-cut to be an Aladdin knockoff.
** This has led to some dispute amongst animation fans as to whether Disney shamelessly plagiarized Williams' film or if it only borrowed some ideas as homage. Williams had shown footage of ''Thief'' to the animators on ''Roger Rabbit'' in hopes of recruiting them, which certainly didn't help.
* ExecutiveMeddling: One of the contractual agreements Creator/RobinWilliams had was that they not make a big deal about him being in the movie (''Film/{{Toys}}'' was coming out the following month, and he didn't want this film to overshadow Creator/BarryLevinson's pet project), which included the requirement that the poster not have the Genie take up more than 25% of merchandise. Just look at the image. While he doesn't technically exceed the maximum allowed amount of space, he's still by far the most obvious character. Robin Williams sued, won, and didn't return for ''Disney/AladdinTheReturnOfJafar'', although he finally agreed to reprise the role for ''Disney/AladdinAndTheKingOfThieves''.
** There's more to it than just that. Williams did not grant permission to use his voice in commercials or in any merchandising (such as talking Genie dolls). Disney promised they wouldn't do any such thing, but did any way.
* FakeBrit: Jonathan Freeman as Jafar.
* HarpoDoesSomethingFunny: The animators and writers managed to accommodate Robin Williams.
* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Creator/FrankWelker voices the Cave of Wonders using a voice strikingly similar to [[InspectorGadget Dr. Claw]]. Interestingly, he's also [[TalkingToHimself Abu AND Raja]].
** Title character's voice is [[FullHouse Steve Hale]] (D.J.'s boyfriend).
** Razoul (the head guard) is [[WesternAnimation/GoofTroop Pete]].
** [[Creator/CharlieAdler Gazeem the Thief]] is [[WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures Buster Bunny]], [[WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife Mr. and Mrs. Bighead]], [[WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken Cow, Chicken, and the Red Guy]].
** Iago is Creator/GilbertGottfried (as if you can't tell).
** The Sultan is [[ErnestSavesChristmas a former Santa]].
** Jasmine's singing sounds suspiciously like {{Disney/Mulan}}. Except in the sequels where her singing sounds like {{WesternAnimation/Anastasia}}. Or [[TheSwanPrincess Odette]].
*** Musical theatre fans might recognize [[Theatre/LesMiserables Éponine or Fantine]], or [[Theatre/MissSaigon Kim]] in Jasmine's singing voice - aka Lea Salonga.
*** In the French version, Jafar is Dr. Series/{{House}}.
*** In Brazil, Jafar is also [[Disney/TheLionKing Scar]]. And the announcer of every movie trailer. And in a bit of irony, had also previously sought a magic lamp dubbing the villain of [[WesternAnimation/DuckTalesTheMovieTreasureOfTheLostLamp the DuckTales movie]].
*** In Italy and Hungary, Jafar is [[WesternAnimation/{{Balto}} Steele]]
*** In Finland, Jafar is ''[[Disney/TheManyAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh Tigger]]'' of all, [[LivingToys er, people]].
** In Japan, Creator/AkiraKamiya is Iago and Creator/KoichiYamadera is the Genie. Should Jafar be [[Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective Professor Ratigan]].
** Do not forget the [[Main/ShinichiroMiki Japanese Aladdin]], and James from [[Anime/PokemonAnime Team Rocket]]!
** An interesting variation in the German dub, crossing over into a {{Woolseyism}}: while Creator/RobinWilliams might have quit after the first movie, his German voice actor Peer Augustinski certainly didn't.
*** In the Swedish dub of the first sequel Genie didn't get a new voice actor, but Jafar did. In [[RuleOfThree Mexico, Brazil and Sweden]]: the Genie is [[Disney/{{Hercules}} Hades]].
*** Jafar's German voice actor Joachim Kemmer is also [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Sebastian]], [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Lumiere]], [[Disney/TheBlackCauldron The Horned King]], [[WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}} Rasputin]], [[WesternAnimation/AllDogsGoToHeaven Red the Demon Cat]], [[Disney/TheRescuers Wilbur]] and [[Disney/{{Pocahontas}} Governor Ratcliffe]].
*** Vesa-Matti Loiri, the Finnish voice of Genie in the first movie and also a very popular comedian in his country, allegedly didn't think that a comedian telling another comedian's jokes would be funny, so he proceeded to essentially make his own gags very loosely based on the Genie's original lines. The end result was so good that one of the film's animators asked for special permission to send Loiri a thank-you drawing of Genie, and [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome he actually got it.]]
** In Spain this was also the film that initiated star casting ''for dubs''. Basically after hyping for months that Robin Williams was the Genie, instead of hiring Robin's usual voice actor they did a ''second'' dose of star power marketing and cast Josema Yuste of comedic duo Martes Y Trece as the Genie.
*** Speaking of Spain, Ángel de Gracia (Aladdin) wound up on WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland 20 years later... as Noah!
** In Norway and Brazil, Aladdin is [[TheSwanPrincess Prince Derek]]. Speaking of the Brazilian Swan Princess: Odette is Jasmine, Jean-Bob is the Genie, and Rothbart is Jafar.
* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: Jonathan Freeman, Jafar's voice actor, on the DVD extras appears as the total opposite to his evil character: he's funny, nice, gentle, chubby and nowhere near as tall! He's also terrified of birds, which became something of a "WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes" moment when live parrots were actually brought into the studio to better assist the animators in animating Iago.
* TheOtherMarty: Aladdin himself: Aladdin was originally drawn as a scrawny 12-year-old. (Or thereabouts.) It was only ''after'' animation had begun that they realized they needed a more buff look for their hero. However, it was too late to re-do the animation that had been done already, and the 'scrawny' Aladdin can be seen in the "Friend Like Me" sequence[[note]]Pay attention to Aladdin during the lines "''You gots power in your corner now''" and "''you ain't never had a friend like me''" just before "''yes, sir, we pride ourselves on service''", where it's particularly obvious[[/note]]. In fact, Aladdin's original design was based on Michael J. Fox, which would make him an Other Marty for the ''[[Film/BackToTheFuture original]]'' Other Marty.
* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Re-releases of this film tend to have the bad luck of coming too late to hop on whatever re-release bandwagon Disney happens to be running at the time (e.g. IMAX, theatrical 3D, and now Blu-ray 3D).
* ThrowItIn:
** As stated in ExactWords, the 'Applause' sign on the Genie's back after "Friend Like Me".
** Many scenes are Robin Williams ad-libbing, particularly the opening one with the Peddler. Gilbert Gottfried also did it at times, a notable example being the line "gotta pack up the guns, the weapons, the blades, and how 'bout this picture, I don't know, I think I'm making a weird face in it." line shortly after Ali Ababwa/Aladdin unveiled Jafar and Iago's treacherous ambitions to the Sultan.
*** There was so much ad-libbing, ''Aladdin'' was disqualified from any screenplay Oscars.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Creator/PatrickStewart was up for the role of Jafar. He wanted to do it, too, but fitting it into his schedule (which included the weekly ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'') proved too difficult. He considers not voicing Jafar one of his biggest career regrets.
** 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''.
** Aladdin was originally gonna have friends who wouldhelp him out. They were written out, and became the villains Minos, Fatima, and Aziz in the TV series.
** Indie animation legend Creator/BillPlympton was offered a six figure deal to animate on the film, and only turned it down when he learned that Disney held intellectual rights over any ideas he had while working for them.
* "A Whole New World" is one of the most popular audition songs in ''Series/AmericanIdol'' history.
