The law is wrong. If I do marry, I want it to be for love.
  • [chased by Razoul and his guards] All this for a loaf of bread?
  • Abu, this is no time to panic! [gasps and sees a cliff] Start panicking!
  • Genie, you're free! [using his third wish to free Genie from the lamp]

Princess Jasmine[edit]

  • Oh, Father! Rajah was just playing with him. Weren't you, Rajah? You were just playing with that overdressed, self-absorbed Prince Achmed, weren't you?
  • Then maybe I don't wanna be a princess any more!
  • Oh, sure. People who tell you where to go and how to dress?
  • When I am queen, I will have the power to get rid of you!
  • How dare you! All of you! Standing around deciding my future?! I am not a prize to be won!
  • Him! I choose- I choose you, Aladdin.


  • I can't believe it! I just don't believe it! We're never gonna get ahold of that stupid lamp! Just forget it! Look at this. Look at this! I'm so ticked off that I'm molting!


  • [after coming out of his lamp] OY! 10,000 years will give you such a crick in the neck! Hang on a second. [hangs Aladdin by the back of his vest on a low-hanging rock while he tends to his torticollis]
  • Well, I feel sheepish. All right, you baaaaad boy, but no more freebies.
  • It's all part and parcel, the whole genie gig. PHENOMENAL COSMIC POWERS! Itty, bitty living space.
  • [after saving Aladdin from drowning] Al, I'm gettin' kinda fond of you, kid. Not that I want to pick out curtains or anything.
  • Jafar, Jafar, he's our man, if he can't do it: GREAT!
  • [last lines] Made you look.


  • [having learned from the Cave of Wonders] Yes. Only one may enter. I must find this one. This Diamond in the Rough.
  • [after Aladdin has returned] YOU! How many times do I have to kill you, boy?!

Prince Achmed[edit]

  • You are a worthless street rat. You were born a street rat, you'll die a street rat, and only your fleas will mourn you!

Cave of Wonders[edit]

  • Who disturbs my slumber?


  • Ahh! Salaam and good evening to you, worthy friend. Please, please, come closer. [camera hits him in the face] Too close! A little too close. [camera backs up] There. Welcome to Agrabah. City of mystery...of enchantment... [sets up a vendor stall] ...and the finest merchandise this side of the River Jordan! On sale today! Come on down!
  • [holding up an oil lamp] Do not be fooled by its commonplace appearance. Like so many things, it is not what is outside, but what is inside that counts. This is no ordinary lamp! It once changed the course of a young man's life; a young man who, like this lamp, was more than what he seemed: a diamond in the rough. Perhaps you would like to hear the tale? It begins on a dark night, where a dark man waits... with a dark purpose.


  • She said she knew the sultan!


  • A thousand apologies, Oh Patient One.


[First lines; The movie begins with a desert, a short peddler rides a camel]
Peddler: [singing] Oh I come from a land, / From a faraway place / Where the caravan camels roam / Where it's flat and immense / And the heat is intense / It's barbaric but hey, it's home / When the wind's from the east / And the sun's from the west / And the sand in the glass is right / Come on down, stop on by, / Hop a carpet and fly / To another Arabian night / Arabian nights / Like Arabian days / More often than not / Are hotter than hot / In a lot of good ways / Arabian nights / 'Neath Arabian moons / A fool off his guard / Could fall and fall hard / Out there on the dunes [speaking] Ah, salaam and good evening to you, worthy friend. Please, please, come closer. [camera hits him in the face] Too close. A little too close. [camera backs up] There. Welcome to Agrabah. City of mystery. Of enchantment. And the finest merchandise this side of the river Jordan. Come on down. Look at this. Combination hookah and coffee maker. Also makes Julienne fries. Will not break. [taps it on table] Will not... [it falls apart] It broke. [holding up a box] Ooh! Look at this. I have never seen one of these intact before. This is the famous Dead Sea Tupperware. Listen. [he lifts the lid of the box a little and blows a clandestine raspberry] Ah, still good. [hurries] Wait, don't go! I can see that you're only interested in the exceptionally rare. I think, then, you would be most rewarded to consider... this. [holding up an oil lamp] Do not be fooled by its commonplace appearance. Like so many things, it is not what is outside, but what is inside that counts. This is no ordinary lamp. It once changed the course of a young man's life. A young man who, like this lamp, was more than what he seemed. A diamond in the rough. Perhaps you would like to hear the tale? It begins on a dark... night. Where a dark man waits, with a dark purpose.

[The next day, in a rooftop, where Aladdin rushes up to the edge, carrying a loaf of bread. He almost drops it over the edge]
Fazal: [off-screen] Stop, thief!
Razoul: I'll have your hands for a trophy, street rat.
Aladdin: [looks back, then down, then at the bread] All this for a loaf of bread?
[he jumps off, landing on two ropes strung between buildings, with drying clothes on them. He skies down them, collecting bits and pieces of clothing on him as he goes. Finally, he's nearing the end of the rope, at a window, when a woman reaches out and slams the shutters closed. Aladdin slams into the shutters and falls to the street, his fall being broken by numerous awnings and the pile of clothes around him. He pulls off the top layer of clothes and is about to enjoy his bread when]
Nahbi: [spots Aladdin] There he is.
Hakim: You won't get away so easy.
Aladdin: [holds up the bread] You think that was easy?
[He turns to see a group of women laughing at him]
Razoul: [to his guards] You two, over that way. And you, follow me. We'll find him.
[Aladdin walks up to the women, disguised as one of them]
Aladdin: Morning, ladies.
Aneesa: Getting into trouble a little early today, aren't we, Aladdin?
Aladdin: Trouble? No way. You're only in trouble if you get caught.
Razoul: [angrily grabs Aladdin] GOTCHA!
Aladdin: I'm in trouble!
Razoul: And this time.
[Abu screeching]
Aladdin: Perfect timing, Abu! As usual!
Abu: Hello.
Aladdin: Come on, let's get outta here! [singing] Got to keep one jump ahead of the bread line / One swing ahead of the sword / I steal only what I can't afford / That's everything.
[Aladdin battles Razoul wielding a sword. He dodges a couple of swings, then pulls down Razoul's pants. Abu raspberries Razoul, then dodges an attack. Razoul swings at Aladdin, but destroys a barrel of fish. As Aladdin runs off, Razoul pulls a fish over his lower body as a pair of pants]
Aladdin: [singing] One jump ahead of the lawmen / That's all, and that's no joke / These guys don't appreciate I'm broke
[Aladdin and Abu scamper up a pile of barrels, then kick one down on top of a guard]
Guards: [one at a time] Riffraff! Street rat! Scoundrel! Take that!
Aladdin: [singing] Just a little snack, guys
[Aladdin scampers to the top of a platform. The guards shake the platform back and fro trying to knock him off]
Guards: Rip him open, take it back, guys
Aladdin: [singing] I can take a hint / Got to face the facts / You're my only friend, Abu
Harem Girls: Who?
[Aladdin jumps off the platform to certain death, only to grab Abu's hands like an acrobat. The pair swing into a harem]
Harem Girls: Oh, it's sad Aladdin's hit the bottom / He's become a one-man rise in crime
[Abu finds a plate full of fruit and stuffs his mouth full like a chipmunk]
Bakhtawar: [singing] I'd blame parents, / Except he hasn't got 'em
Aladdin: [singing] Got to eat to live, got to steal to eat / Tell you all about it when I got time
[Aladdin and Abu exit. In a muscleman flexing to a crowd. The guards rush past. When Aladdin and Abu behind the muscleman, matching his moves, until they make a mistake and are discovered]
Aladdin: [singing] One jump ahead of the slowpokes, / One skip ahead of my doom / Next time, going to use a nom de plume
Razoul: There he is.
Aladdin: [singing] One jump ahead of the hit men, / One hit ahead of the flock / I think I'll take a stroll around the bloCk
[A chase sequence, in which Aladdin and Abu, pursued by the guards, race through a flock of sheep, hurdle a man sleeping on a bed of nails (of course one extremely large Fazal lands on him). Abu disguises himself with jewels until a customer discovers him]
Customer: Stop, thief. Vandal.
Aladdin: Abu.
Kerubino: Scandal.
Aladdin: [singing] Let's not be too hasty
[Aladdin is surrounded by guards in front of a door. The door opens and a large, Mehrunisa comes out]
Mehrunisa: [singing] Still I think he's rather tasty
[Aladdin tumbles away, then puts his arm around Razoul, acting like they're all chums]
Aladdin: [singing] Got to eat to live, got to steal to eat, / Otherwise we'd get along
Guards: Wrong
Razoul: [off-screen] Get him!
[They all jump into a pile and fight. When they stop, Aladdin and Abu are gone. They are sneaking away in barrels. They run across a flaming pit, followed by guards who hop up and down, screaming in pain as they cross the rocks. Aladdin and Abu pass a sword swallower, then Abu goes back, pulls the sword out of the swallower's mouth. Abu advances on the guards, who retreat in fear]
Hakim: He's got a sword.
Razoul: You idiots. We've all got swords.
[Abu sets the sword down gently, then runs. Aladdin and Abu are once again surrounded, with guards coming from left and right. He jumps up and climbs a robe trick being done on the street, as the guards all crash into each other]
Aladdin: [singing] One jump ahead of the hoof beats
Guards: Vandal!
Aladdin: [singing] One hop ahead of the hump
Guards: Street rat!
Aladdin: [singing] One trick ahead of disaster,
Guards: Scoundrel!
Aladdin: [singing] They're quick but I'm much faster
[The guards chase Aladdin up a staircase into a room. He grabs a carpet and jumps out the window]
Aladdin: [singing] Here goes, better throw my hand in, / Wish me happy landing / All I got to do is jump!
[The guards follow him out the window, but they go straight down to the street, and land in a pile with the sign "Crazy Hakim's Discount Fertilizer"]
Guards: Yuck! Oy!

[Aladdin uses the carpet as a parachute to land safely and out of danger. Aladdin and Abu high-five each other]
Aladdin: And now, esteemed effendi, we feast. All right.
Abu: Yum, yum!
[Aladdin breaks the bread in two and gives half to Abu, who begins to eat. But Aladdin looks over and sees two young children rummaging through the garbage for food. The girl sees him, then drops her find and tries to hide. Aladdin looks at them, then the bread, then at Abu]
Abu: Uh-oh!
[Abu angrily takes a big bite of his food, but Aladdin gets up and walks over to the children. The girl pulls her brother back]
Aladdin: Here. Go on, take it.
[The children giggle with delight. Abu tries to swallow his bite, then looks guilty. He walks over to the children and offers his bread to them. In delight, they pet him on the head]
Abu: Ah, don't. Huh?
[Abu sees Aladdin walking into the daylight, where there is a parade going on. Aladdin peers over the shoulders of people. He sees Prince Achmed riding on Emir]
Villager #1: On his way to the palace, I suppose.
Villager #2: Another suitor for the princess.
[Aladdin is startled as the two children come running out from the alley. The boy runs out in front of Achmed's horse, startling it]
Prince Achmed: Out of my way, you filthy brats.
[Achmed angrily brings up his whip to attack the children, but Aladdin jumps in front of them and catches the whip]
Aladdin: Hey! If I were as rich as you, I could afford some manners.
Prince Achmed: Oh, I'll teach you some manners.
[Achmed violently kicks Aladdin into a mud puddle. The crowd laugh at him]
Aladdin: Look at that, Abu. It's not every day you see a horse with two rear ends.
[Achmed furiously stops and angrily turns back to Aladdin]
Prince Achmed: You are a worthless street rat. You were born a street rat, you'll die a street rat and only your fleas will mourn you.
[Aladdin angrily rushes Achmed, but the doors to the castle slam shut in his face]
Aladdin: I'm not worthless. And I don't have fleas. Come on, Abu. Let's go home.

[Aladdin sadly makes the climb to his home with the view, then tucks in Abu for the night]
Aladdin: [singing] Riffraff, street rat / I don't buy that / If only they'd look closer / Would they see a poor boy? / No siree / They'd find out / There's so much more to me
[He pulls back a curtain to reveal the beautiful palace]
Aladdin: Some day, Abu, things are going to change. We'll be rich, live in a palace and never have any problems at all.
[The camera zooms in a next morning, the Sultan's palace]

[Prince Achmed angrily comes storming in from the palace gardens after being rejected by Princess Jasmine]
Prince Achmed: I've never been so insulted.
Sultan: Oh, Prince Achmed. You're, you're not leaving so soon, are you?
Prince Achmed: [angrily walks away, pants at the butt area are ripped off, revealing spotted underwear] Good luck marrying her off.
Sultan: Oh, Jasmine. Jasmine. Jasmine. [The Sultan angrily goes off into the garden looking for his daughter. He finds her, but is interrupted by Rajah, Jasmine's pet tiger, who blocks him off. Rajah has a piece of Achmed's undershorts in his mouth. The Sultan grabs the cloth and yanks it out of Rajah's mouth] Confound it, Rajah. [angrily brandishes the piece of Achmed's clothing] So this is why Prince Achmed stormed out.
Princess Jasmine: Oh, Father. Rajah was just playing with him. Weren't you, Rajah? You were just playing with that overdressed, self-absorbed Prince Achmed, weren't you? [Jasmine giggles, Rajah purrs, and then see the Sultan glaring at them] Ahem...
Sultan: Dearest, you've got to stop rejecting every suitor who comes to call! The law says you -
Princess Jasmine: [choruses with him] Must be married to a prince...
Sultan: your next birthday.
Princess Jasmine: The law is wrong!
Sultan: You've only got 3 more days!
Princess Jasmine: Father! I hate being forced into this. If I do marry... I want it to be for love.
Sultan: Jasmine... it's not only this law... I'm not going to be around forever, and, well, I just want to make sure you're taken care of. Provided for.
Princess Jasmine: Please, try to understand! I've never done a thing on my own. I've never had any real friends. [Rajah purrs] Except you, Rajah. [Rajah purrs softly] I've never even been outside the palace walls.
Sultan: But Jasmine, you're a princess.
Princess Jasmine: Then maybe I don't wanna be a princess any more!
Sultan: Ooooh! [to Rajah purrs] Allah forbid you should have any daughters!
[Rajah growls softly]

[In the gardens at midnight. A shadowy figure walks through. We see it is Jasmine in disguise. She reaches the palace wall, then begins to climb it. She is tugged from behind by Rajah]
Princess Jasmine: Oh, I'm sorry, Rajah. But I can't stay here and have my life lived for me. I'll miss you. [She begins to climb again, and is helped up by Rajah, who begins to whine and whimper] Goodbye.
[She disappears over the wall]

[The next morning, in a marketplace, Aladdin and Abu are up to their capers again. They are on top of the awning of a fruit stand]
Aladdin: Okay, Abu. Go.
[Abu dips over the edge and looks at Omar]
Omar: [to passing crowd] Try this. Your taste buds will dance and sing. [Abu foolishly grabs a melon and hangs there, distracting his attention] Hey, get your paws off that.
Abu: Blah, blah, blah!
Omar: Why, you... Get away from here, you cursed, filthy ape.
[He angrily grabs the melon away from Abu. But in the foreground, Aladdin dips down and snatches another melon from the stand]
Abu: Bye-bye.
[He zings back up. Omar takes the melon to the front, where he places it on top of a stack. He looks confused, like he has just done this]
Aladdin: Nice going Abu. Breakfast is served.
[Aladdin and Abu on the roof break open the melon and eat. We see Jasmine walking through the street]
Abdul: Pretty lady, buy a pot. No finer pot in brass or silver.
Daoud Sahadi: Sugar dates. Sugar dates and figs. Sugar dates and pistachios.
Amail: Would the lady like a necklace? A pretty necklace for a pretty lady.
[She is charmed by the action, but is startled by a fish thrust into her face]
Basim: Fresh fish. We catch 'em, you buy them.
Princess Jasmine: No. I don't think so. [she backs away, but accidentally bumps into Al-Hakeem, who is startled into swallowing his fire] Oh, excuse me. [he gulps, then belches fire from his mouth. Jasmine is disgusted. He is pleased and taps his stomach. Aladdin sees her, and a strange look comes over his face] I'm really very sorry.
Aladdin: [he's obviously deeply in love with her] Wow!
[She pulls the hood of her cloak over her head. Abu sees him and jumps up on his shoulder, waving his hand in front of Aladdin's face]
Abu: Uh-oh. Hello? Hello?
[Jasmine stops at the fruit stand and sees a young homeless child reaching for a piece of fruit. She picks one up and gently gives it to him]
Princess Jasmine: You must be hungry. Here you go. [the boy runs off]
Farouk: You'd better be able to pay for that.
Princess Jasmine: [mystified] Pay?
Farouk: No one steals from my cart.
Princess Jasmine: I'm sorry, sir. I don't have any money.
Farouk: Thief!
Princess Jasmine: Please. If you let me go to the palace, I can get some from the sultan.
Farouk: Do you know what the penalty is for stealing?
[He furiously takes her hand and angrily pins it down on the table, intending to chop it off]
Princess Jasmine: No, please.
[The sword drops, but his hand is stopped by Aladdin's]
Aladdin: Thank you, kind sir. I'm so glad you found her. I've been looking for you.
Princess Jasmine: [whispering] What are you doing?
Aladdin: [whispering back] Just play along.
Farouk: You know this girl?
Princess Jasmine: Sadly, yes. She is my sister. She's a little crazy. [he circles his finger around his ear. She is shocked. Farouk angrily grabs him by the vest]
Farouk: She said she knew the sultan.
Aladdin: She thinks the monkey is the sultan.
[Abu is picking a pocket. He hears this, then straightens up. Jasmine, playing along, kneels and bows to Abu]
Princess Jasmine: O wise Sultan, how may I serve you?
Abu: Well, blah, blah, blah, blah.
Aladdin: Tragic, isn't it? [he leans forward, picking up another apple from the cart with his foot] But no harm done. [walks over to Jasmine] Now, come along, sis. Time to go see the doctor.
Princess Jasmine: [to a camel standing nearby] Oh, hello, doctor. How are you?
Aladdin: No, not that one. [to Abu, whose pockets are bulging] Come on, Sultan.
[Abu bows to the crowd and everything he's stolen from the cart falls out]
Farouk: Huh? What is it? [Abu picks up what he can carry, and the trio run off] Come back here, you little thieves.

[Finally, in the real Aladdin climbing to the top of the ladder, followed by Jasmine]
Aladdin: Almost there.
[Jasmine climbs over the top, but trips and falls into Aladdin's arms. She stands up]
Princess Jasmine: I want to thank you for stopping that man.
Aladdin: Uh, forget it. [he grabs a pole] So, uh, this is your first time in the marketplace, huh?
[Aladdin pole vaults to the next building, leaving Jasmine behind]
Princess Jasmine: Is it that obvious?
Aladdin: Well, you do kind of stand out. [he stares at her, still in love. She returns the look. But he realizes what he is doing, and returns to normal] I mean, you don't seem to know how dangerous Agrabah can be. [he lays a plank between the buildings for her to walk over, but as he is leaned down, she vaults over his head. He looks back in surprise. She tosses the pole to him. Both Aladdin's and Abu's eyes bulge]
Princess Jasmine: Hmm. I'm a fast learner.
Abu: Wow.
Aladdin: Hey. Come on. This way. [they go inside the roof of a building, dodging planks and beams as they go] Whoa. Watch your head there. Be careful.
Princess Jasmine: Is this where you live?
Aladdin: Yep. Just me and Abu. Come and go as we please.
Princess Jasmine: That sounds fabulous.
Aladdin: Well, it's not much. [he pulls back the curtain and exposes the palace] But it's got a great view. Wow. The palace looks pretty amazing, huh?
Princess Jasmine: Oh, it's wonderful.
Aladdin: I wonder what it'd be like to live there. And have servants and valets.
Princess Jasmine: Oh, sure. People who tell you where to go and how to dress.
Aladdin: It's better than here. You're always scraping for food and ducking the guards.
Princess Jasmine: You're not free to make your own choices.
Aladdin: Sometimes you feel so...
Princess Jasmine: You're just...
Aladdin and Princess Jasmine: ...trapped.
[They look at each other, realizing that they're perfect for one another. But Aladdin then realizes where he is, and breaks the look. He takes the apple out of Abu's hand and rolls it down his arm into the hand of Jasmine]
Aladdin: So where are you from?
Princess Jasmine: What does it matter? I ran away and I am not going back.
Aladdin: Really? How come? [he takes a bite from the apple in his hand, then hands it to Abu, who has a disgusted look on his face]
Abu: Why, you...
[Aladdin walks over and sits next to Jasmine]
Princess Jasmine: My father's forcing me to get married.
Aladdin: That's, that's awful. [Abu appears from behind the princess and tries to steal the apple] Abu!
[Abu races up to a higher point, chattering and cursing as he goes]
Princess Jasmine: What?
Aladdin: Abu says, uh... that's not fair.
Abu: What?
Princess Jasmine: Oh, did he?
Aladdin: Yeah. Of course.
Princess Jasmine: And does Abu have anything else to say?
Aladdin: He wishes there was something he could do to help.
Abu: Oh, boy.
Princess Jasmine: Hmm. Tell him that's very sweet.

Genie: [after transforming Aladdin into a prince] He's got the outfit. He's got the elephant. But we're not through yet! Hang on to your turban, kid! We're gonna make you a star!

Aladdin: [to Genie, regretfully] Genie, I can't keep this up on my own. I.....I can't wish you free.
Genie: [obviously hurt] Fine. I understand. After all, you've lied to everyone else. Hey, I was just beginning to feel left out. Now, if you'll excuse me, "Master". [vanishes into his lamp]

[Last lines]
Aladdin: I'm sorry I lied to you about being a prince.
Princess Jasmine: I know why you did.
Aladdin: Well, I guess this is goodbye. [Genie pokes his head around the corner shocked at what he is hearing]
Princess Jasmine: Oh, that stupid law. This isn't fair. I love you.
Genie: [wipes away a tear] Al, no problem. You still got one wish left. Just say the word and you're a prince again.
Aladdin: But what about your freedom?
Genie: Hey, it's only an eternity of servitude. This is love. [he leans down next to her] Al, you're not going to find another girl like her in a million years. Believe me, I know. I've looked.
Aladdin: Jasmine, I do love you. But I got to stop pretending to be something I'm not.
Princess Jasmine: I understand.
[They take one final look into each other's eyes, then Aladdin turns to the Genie]
Aladdin: Genie, I wish for your freedom.
Genie: One prince pedigree coming up. I... What?
Aladdin: [he holds the lamp up to Genie] Genie, you're free.
[A transformation scene ensues, in which the shackles fall off Genie's wrist and the lamp falls uselessly to the ground. Genie picks it up and looks at it]
Genie: [he can't believe it; laughing] I'm free. I'm free. [he hands the lamp to Aladdin] Quick, quick, wish for something outrageous. Say, "I want the Nile." Wish for the Nile. Try that.
Aladdin: Uh, I wish for the Nile.
Genie: No way. [laughs hysterically. He bounces around the balcony like a pinball] Oh, does that feel good! I'm free. I'm free at last. I'm hitting the road. I'm off to see the world. I'm...
[He is packing a suitcase, but looks down and sees Aladdin looking very sad]
Aladdin: Genie, I'm... I'm going to miss you.
Genie: Me too, Al. No matter what anybody says, you'll always be a prince to me.
[They hug. The Sultan steps forward]
Sultan: That's right. You've certainly proven your worth as far as I'm concerned. It's that law that's the problem.
Jasmine: Father?
Sultan: Well, am I sultan or am I sultan? From this day forth, the princess shall marry whoever she deems worthy.
Jasmine: [she smiles widely and runs into Aladdin's arms] Him. I choose... I choose you, Aladdin.
Aladdin: [laughs] Call me Al.
[They are about to kiss when giant blue hands pull everybody together. Genie is decked out in a Hawaiian shirt with golf clubs and a Goofy hat]
Genie: All of you, come over here. Big group hug. Do you mind if I kiss the monkey? [he kisses Abu] Ooh, hairball. Well, I can't do any more damage around this Popsicle stand. I'm out of here. Bye-bye, you two crazy lovebirds. Hey, Rugman, Ciao, I'm history. No, I'm mythology. I don't care what I am. I'm free.
[The Genie flies up into the blue sky leaving a trail of sparkles behind him. They cut (a jump cut to make matters worse) to fireworks exploding over a nightscape. We tilt down and see Aladdin and Jasmine flying on Carpet]
Aladdin: [singing] A whole new world
Princess Jasmine: [singing] A whole new life
Both: [with off-camera chorus] For you and me
Chorus: A whole new world!
[They fly off into the moonlight, and after they have disappeared, the moon turns and reveals the Genie's laughing face. Suddenly the film is grabbed "off the projector", the Genie lifts it up and looks at the audience]
Genie: Made you look.
[Drops the film back to normal, with the normal moon, fades to black]

PEABO BRYSON AND REGINA BELLE lyrics (A Whole New World)[edit]

Peabo Bryson: I can show you the world / Shining, shimmering, splendid / Tell me, princess, now when did / You last let your heart decide? / I can open your eyes / Take you wonder by wonder / Over, sideways and under / On a magic carpet ride / A whole new world / A new fantastic point of view / No one to tell us no / Or where to go / Or say we're only dreaming
Regina Belle: A whole new world / A dazzling place I never knew / But now from way up here / It's crystal clear / That now I'm in a whole new world with you / Unbelievable sights / Indescribable feeling / Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling / Through an endless diamond sky / A whole new world
Peabo Bryson: Don't you dare close your eyes
Regina Belle: A hundred thousand things to see
Peabo Bryson: Hold your breath, it gets better
Regina Belle: I'm like a shooting star / I've come so far / I can't go back to where I used to be
Peabo Bryson: A whole new world
Regina Belle: With new horizons to pursue
Peabo Bryson: I'll chase them anywhere / There's time to spare / Let me share this whole new world with you
Regina Belle: A whole new world
Peabo Bryson: A whole new world / A new fantastic point of view / No one to tell us no / Or where to go
Regina Belle: Or say we're only dreaming
Peabo Bryson: A whole new world
Regina Belle: Every turn a surprise
Peabo Bryson: With new horizons to pursue / Every moment red-letter
Regina Belle: I'll chase them anywhere
Peabo Bryson: There's time to spare
Regina Belle: Anywhere
Peabo Bryson: There's time to spare
Regina Belle: Let me share this whole new world with you, you / A whole new world
Peabo Bryson: A whole new world
Regina Belle: That's where we'll be
Peabo Bryson: Where we will be
Regina Belle: A thrilling chase
Peabo Bryson: A wondrous place / For you and me


  • Imagine if you had three wishes, three hopes, three dreams, and they all could come true.
  • It is not what is outside, but what is inside that counts.
  • A diamond in the rough.


About Aladdin[edit]

  • I saw something that speculates that the peddler at the beginning of 'Aladdin' is the Genie. That's true!"
  • One of the things [directors] Ron [Clements], John [Musker], and I were talking about was that, originally, when he came in to the first session, he said, “Do you want me to do kind of an ethnic voice for the Genie?” And we said, “No, no, just be yourself.” And we realized later that “being yourself” for Robin Williams is like being 98 different characters at once. [Laughs].
