Aladdin made zero dollars because zero people saw it.
This month Kiyan and Dylan made the decision on what trilogy to watch solely based on how long it was. In hindsight, probably not the best idea. On the other hand, we almost ended up with Lord of the Rings one time, and that’s the complete opposite end of the spectrum. So we watched Aladdin, Aladdin II: The Return of Jafar, and Aladdin 3: King of Thieves. Surprisingly we didn’t watch 4l4ddin: Four Dudes Animate a Movie for $4.
