I recall reading somewhere that early drafts of the script for Aladdin included his mother -- but apparently she was too interesting a character; as they re-wrote, they found her dominating the story to the point where it was more about her than Aladdin. So they tossed her out entirely. Understandable, but I think it would be an interesting idea to dig up some of those scripts and use them as the premise for a prequel....
