A kind-hearted street urchin and a power-hungry Grand Vizier vie for a magic lamp that has the power to make their deepest wishes come true.
Tom Hardy was rumored for the role of Jafar, but this caused another outcry in an ongoing debate among viewers about Hollywood's perceived whitewashing practices (which had peaked with the casting of Scarlett Johansson in Ghost in the Shell (2017)). Hardy was reportedly director Guy Ritchie's preferred choice for the role, but later stated that there was not truth to the rumors that he would play the role. Marwan Kenzari was later cast as Jafar.
You really don't know who I am? Genie, wishes, lamp, none of that ringing a bell?
When Jafar convinces the Sultan to invade a neighboring country in front of Jasmine, a warrior armor is displayed. However, seconds after she leaves his study room, it disappears.
The initial closing credits are show over an elaborate dance routine at the wedding of Aladdin and Jasmine.
