What were the three wishes Aladdin made in the Disney animated feature film?

Bonus points if you can give the time mark they happened.

1 Answer 1


Aladdin's three wishes are:

  • "Genie, I wish for you to make me a prince" - 43:55

  • "Genie, I want you to save my life" - 1:01:00

  • "I wish for your freedom" - 1:19:30

For the record, the second one is a fudge, he doesn't wish it, the Genie says it and Aladdin's head flops forward. Also he makes a non-wish at 38:46 when he tricks the genie into taking him out of the cave.

The genie puffs his chest out with his arms extended; his left arm is thrust towards the camera with three fingers raised; in the background we see 6 other "genies" looking at the main genie

For the sake of completeness, Jafar's three wishes are:

  • "I wish to rule on high, a sultan!" - 1:07:45

  • "I wish to be the most powerful sorceror in the world!!" - 1:09:00

  • "I wish to be an all-powerful genie!!!" - 1:17:00

Jafar also makes a fourth wish ("I wish for Princess Jasmine to fall desperately in love with me" at 1:12:57) but it's not within the Genie's power to grant it.

In the sequel, Aladdin II - The Return of Jafar, Genie/Jafar also grants two wishes to Abis Mal:

  • "I wish for the legendary sunken treasure ship of Cœur du Mer" - 21:55

  • "Perhaps you wish me to return you to the desert?" - 22:18

In the post-credit stinger, Abis asks "Does this mean I don't get my third wish?" (at 1:06:05)

Abis holds the lamp in his left hand; his right hand is raised and pointed; he looks in that direction confused asking the above quote

    Here's an extra bonus Aladdin wish: "I wish for the Nile." - ~1:20:00, I don't have an exact timestamp. Dec 13, 2016 at 14:55
  • @DisturbedNeo No, no, no. It was "I wish for de Nile."
