The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity

The princess is drawn rather seductively, with a little cleavage and an exposed midriff. And she does flaunt her curvy figure.

Jasmine acts seductively towards Jafar attempting to distract him with a kiss.

In the scene where the genie is explaining to Aladdin about what he's about (3 wishes etc), the under-dressed dancers rub up against his private area while dancing on him (almost like a lap dance).

Violence & Gore

A huge lion head -- it's supposed to be a cave -- comes alive and gobbles up a thief who goes inside.

Aladdin is threatened by guards brandishing swords a number of times.

Jafar turns into a huge snake and begins squeezing Aladdin.

Aladdin is tied up by the guards and is then hit over the head with a small club which knocks him out. He is then thrown off a cliff into the ocean attached to a ball and chain. He almost drowns until Genie saves him.

Aladdin uses a sword in combat against Jafar as a snake and stabs him (we'll see a little blood for a second).

A merchant almost cuts off the princess's hand as punishment for theft.

Jafar tells Jasmine that "the street rat" cannot be released because he has been sentenced to death by beheading.

A few characters are bumped around for comedy. None are seriously harmed

Profanity

None, although there are some insults ("its not every day you see a horse with two rear ends). There's one use of ''idiots''

When Genie is doing an impersonation of a french person and has a cigarette in his mouth. (he and Aladdin are talking about Jasmine, before Genie turns him into a prince) On top of that, he uses it to blow smoke-shaped heart, a cute sight-gag.

At the end, Jafar turns into a large, venomous snake, and later, a red and menacing-looking Genie.

Jafar has the abilaty to hypnotise people. May unsettle.

The cave of wonders may frighten younger viewers.

There is a scene where it appears Aladdin might drown, though he is later rescued.

Jasmine is trapped inside a giant hourglass, with sand pouring down on her. As the sand level rises, it becomes apparent that she can't breathe. Aladdin rescues her at the last second.

In the original version of the film, the merchant singing in the beginning says something very offensive in one of the verses ("where they cut off your ear if the don't like your face/ it's barbaric but hey, it's home" refers to Middle Easterners). However, this has been changed for new releases to "Where it's flat and immense And the heat is intense".

Some may be offended by the portrayal of the good guys with Anglo-American accents, and the bad guys with Arabian accents.
