!!Trivia in general:

* ActorAllusion: Abis Mal (Creator/JasonAlexander) acts as essentially an expy of is [[Series/{{Seinfeld}} George Costanza]] in terms of mannerisms and personality.
* 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 ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' series, then is replaced by Creator/JimMeskimen in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsReCoded'' and ''TabletopGame/SorcerersOfTheMagicKingdom''
** Sultan: Is tied with Genie 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 [[Manga/FistoftheNorthStar Kenshiro]]. He's now voiced by ToruOkawa.
* 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.

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

* CelebrityVoiceActor: The TropeCodifier for animated films, with Creator/RobinWilliams getting star billing.
* CutSong: Tons. By both songwriters. Many were reinstated in the stage adaptation.
* DuelingMovies: One of the most convoluted examples ever with Creator/RichardWilliams' ''WesternAnimation/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 was livid and refused to ever voice the character again. Michael Eisner went as far as to purchase ''an original [[Creator/PabloPicasso Picasso]]'' for Williams as an apology, but Williams still refused. This was one of the major factors in studio chief Jeffrey Katzenberg being forced out of the company (he OK'd the process), and after he left Disney and was replaced by former Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox production chief Joe Roth, Williams and the studio patched things up and he returned 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 anyway.
** Williams also worked for union scale, the lowest amount allowed for professional actors.
* FakeBrit: Jonathan Freeman as Jafar.
* HarpoDoesSomethingFunny: The animators and writers managed to accommodate Robin Williams during his extensive ad-libbing, no small feat when you see how many celebrity impressions, sly one-liners, and wild transformations they managed to work in.
* 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.
* OlderThanTheyThink: ''Aladdin'' is actually the '''fourth''' attempt at the "three wishes" rule for genies by Disney; it had been used twice on ''WesternAnimation/{{Ducktales}}'', on one regular episode and in that show's [[WesternAnimation/DucktalesTheMovieTreasureOfTheLostLamp feature film;]] the "three wishes" concept was also used on a ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' episode as well.
* 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.
* PromotedFanboy: Will Finn is the self-proclaimed world's biggest Creator/GilbertGottfried fan and was ecstatic to have him working on the film, which meant he got to meet his hero. He and Gottfried remained close friends after the film finished.
* ReleaseDateChange: The insert for the 2012 ''Disney/LadyAndTheTramp'' [[WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyDiamondEditions Diamond Edition]] Blu-ray says that Disney once planned to have ''Aladdin'' join the line in Spring 2013, until the release of the ''Disney/PeterPan'' Diamond Edition pushed back ''Aladdin'''s induction, to October 2015. The UK did receive an ''Aladdin'' BD in April 2013, but with no Diamond Edition banner (the front cover instead duplicated that of the 1993 WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyClassics VHS).
* ScrewedByTheLawyers: Disney began arranging plans for a live-action Genie prequel as an origin story, but it got locked away when Robin Williams's estate informed the company that Williams's will included a clause that bars any further usage of voice recordings and likenesses that had not yet been made available to the public through earlier releases such as the three home media releases [[note]] The 1993 Walt Disney "Black Diamond" Classics VHS/[=LaserDisc=], the 2004 [[WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyPlatinumEditions Platinum Edition]] VHS/DVD, and the 2015 [[WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyDiamondEditions Diamond Edition]] DVD/Blu-ray/Digital releases [[/note]] 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.
* 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. 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.
* 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.
** Creator/TimCurry, Creator/KelseyGrammer, Creator/JohnHurt, Creator/ChristopherLloyd, and Creator/IanMcKellen were all considered for the role of Jafar.
** 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]]
** Creator/EddieMurphy and Creator/SteveMartin were both considered to provide the voice for Genie.
** Aladdin was originally gonna have a trio of friends (named Babkak, Omar, and Kassim) who would help him out. They were written out, and became the villains Minos, Fatima, and Aziz in the TV series[[note]]Though the former two had a HeelFaceTurn while the latter remained a villain.[[/note]]. They would eventually appear in the stage musical adaptation as Aladdin's sidekicks, subsequently replacing Abu.
** 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.
** Originally Genie was able to grant unlimited wishes, but he was changed to the standard three-wish genie to raise the stakes.
** According to the "Pop-Up Fun Facts" on the DVD, Genie was originally going to be purple. They changed his color to blue to better fit the film's color scheme (Blue signifying "Good", Red signifying "Evil", and Yellow signifying "Neutral").
** There was originally supposed to be a scene where Jafar quizzes the Genie on all the animals that appeared in the Prince Ali song, finding out that the Genie had turned Abu into an elephant in the process. In the final version of the movie Jafar doesn't find out that the Genie did this until right before he sends Aladdin, Abu & the Magic Carpet to the arctic.
* WriteWhoYouKnow: Jasmine is based heavily on Mark Henn's (her leading animator) younger sister.
* "A Whole New World" is one of the most popular audition songs in ''Series/AmericanIdol'' history.
* This is the first animated feature to break the $200 million mark at the box office.
