Can you believe it has been 20 years since Aladdin first entered our lives? The film was an absolute sensation, garnering much critical and financial success. After two decades I thought it would be “soaring good fun” to review the influence of this brand in the Disney universe.

This edition of Disney In Depth will highlight 20 fun facts about everything you ever wanted to know about Prince Ali and company.

1 Though Abu and Rajah serve as the best animal friends to lead characters Aladdin and Jasmine, they do not appear – nor are referenced – in the stage show production at Disney California Adventure Park.

2 Alan Menken won two Oscars for his work on Aladdin, one for his original score and the other for his music on “A Whole New World.”

Aladdin in Nasira's Revenge3 In Aladdin and the King of Thieves, Genie makes reference to a boatload of Disney characters, including Chief Powhatan’s famous daughter, as seen in this clip at about the 1:07 mark.

4 Jafar has a fraternal twin sister, a sorceress named Nasira. She serves as the villain for the Aladdin-themed video game, Disney’s Aladdin in Nasira’s Revenge. Nasira is voiced by none other than Ariel the Little Mermaid herself, actress Jodi Benson.

5 When the film was first released on VHS in 1993, Aladdin sold a whopping 25 million copies.
