Ok. It's a confusion of the animators on Aladdin. It's alright. We all makes mistakes.

BATB, this film is just amazing and I think that it might have got gipped. A, Robbin is cool with Disney now, I have seen him earn that award for all of his rolls and he was just touched. TLK, I will point out mistakes like, Beauty and the Beast's original story was week. Fenneucus, I understand why you hate "The Lion King", but it was meant to be a fun family film and the concept of Hamlet mixed with biblical stories and animals is really creative. "The Lion King" was not a scham (at this point, I'm not mad), (This point I am)"The Wild" on the other hand is the biggest, crappiest, most mind numbingly rip-off of DreamWorks's "Madagascar" I have ever seen in my life. If you thought "The Lion King" was bad, watch "The Wild". Oh, and if you are worried about "Wreck-it-Ralph" will out gross everything, "The Avengers" have just defeated your worries.

Actually, Robin Williams made peace with Disney around 2009, but he still hasn't done the voice of the Genie since ALADDIN AND THE KING OF THIEVES (nowadays the Genie is voiced by Jim Meskimen).

The direct-to-VHS/DVD sequels are in my opinion bad because they are unnecessary like the Jaws sequels.

@Mr. Coat: Even if that was the case, Disney shouldn't mess with all of those video game companies and their characters. Especially since some like Nintendo tend to be protective of their own properties. I still like video games, of course. But Disney, on the other hand, is what I don't like: Especially their lack of quality and greedy business practices over the years (One would wish they would stay an animation studio where they belong, but unfortunately, they became interested in more endeavors as time went by). I wondered if Disney was making Wreck-It Ralph just in time for the tenth anniversary of Kingdom Hearts? And knowing Disney, there is still the possibility of something Kingdom Hearts-related making a cameo or two in the movie. Goes to show that they're trying to take over the entire video game world (Shame on them!). I hope Star Fox won't make a cameo in this movie since it would be an emotional pain to see Fox McCloud, my favorite Nintendo character, in a doggone Disney movie, it is bad enough that Sonic the Hedgehog got represented in some way, even though the cameo is just Dr. Robotnik, I mean, Dr. Eggman, sorry. Who Framed Roger Rabbit I can understand since it is a live-action/animation hybrid that was actually a collaboration with Amblin Entertainment with Disney's own Touchstone Pictures, whereas Wreck-It Ralph is the 52nd film in the Disney Feature Canon (same group of films as The Lion King or such), as there is a difference. All of those game characters making cameos in Wreck-It Ralph may be the first time that any of the 50+ animated films in the Disney Feature Canon used non-Disney characters (If you compare video game characters and the companies that own them to those of animation's golden age, you will see that the golden age cartoon characters would be easier for one big entertainment giant to get their hands on (hopefully), since most of them have faded to obscurity and public domain over the years with the exception of Warner Bros. and of course Disney. Fleischer Studios was shut down back in 1942, and MGM, or at least their cartoons, were acquired by Time Warner, the entertainment giant that also owns Warner Bros.). I'm more interested in video games then I am with golden age cartoons, to be honest. And the thought of Disney being involved in gaming is very unpleasant. I have the feeling that in a few years by now, video game characters are going to be more well-known then all the golden age cartoon characters, especially with the growing success of the latest platforms (Did you know that Warner Bros. now owns the rights to Mortal Kombat? The same goes for the rest of Midway Games' properties ever since 2009 when Midway went bankrupt). It would've been better if a non-Disney company would make a video game crossover (game, movie or otherwise) instead. For instance, why can't Warner Bros. or DreamWorks make a crossover with iconic video game characters? Why does it have to be doggone Disney? It's like they're hogging all the attention and leaving everyone else behind. You'll have to accept that not every gamer on the planet is going to praise Disney no matter how much nostalgia you all have about it. Some gamers like other animation genres, films or series better (I like anime, for instance). I wasn't trying to bother or disrespect anyone here, all I'm saying is my honest opinion.

@Fennecus: Disney very likely bought the rights to use those characters in a feature film. It's no different than Disney, Warner Brothers and Fleischer and MGM characters appearing together in Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

The Lion King happens to fail on many levels. I also hope that Wreck-It Ralph doesn't become a big box-office blockbuster like The Lion King was or else I will be very very very very upset because the idea of Disney making an animated feature canon film that's a video game crossover seems so wrong, also a disgrace to all of the gaming industry. It just seems so wrong for Nintendo and all those other gaming icons to be in a Disney film. Then again, when did the Disney Animated Features Canon films feature licensed characters copyrighted by other companies, anyway? Public domain fairy-tales or literature stories don't count since they were written years long before The Walt Disney Company, Time Warner, Viacom, the News Corporation, among a billion other companies, were ever founded. And when did Disney get the licensing rights to use all those video game characters? I hope Disney gets sued for using them in Wreck-It Ralph, because I'll tell you what: They're not their characters.

Yeah, stupid YouTube. I've never attempted to monetize my videos on there, but I've still had some of my reviews removed. I've never made a dime on there, but that's the only site I've ever had problems with. Go figure...

The Lion King is my favorite Disney movie with Tangled. Wonderful story, Beautiful animation, wonderful well developed characters, Fantastic songs and music. And Beauty and the Beast is beautiful too and Aladdin's a good movie.
