1. Tom Cruise’s role in how the film turned out.
Aladdin was originally based on Michael J. Fox but the filmmakers felt that he wasn’t manly enough. That is when they decided to use Tom Cruise as an inspiration, keeping in mind that Tom had an exclusive air of confidence and swagger that brought Aladdin’s character to life.
2. Initially, Robin Williams wasn’t considered for the role.
Many renowned celebrities like John Candy, Steve Martin, Eddie Murphy and John Goodman were considered for the role. Then finally, senses got knocked into the filmmakers and Robin Williams got the job.
3. The applause sign was actually meant for the audience.
