During "A Whole New World", we can see Aladdin and Jasmine descending down on the magic carpet, and we can hear Jasmine singing, "A whole new world," but her mouth is not moving. This is right after she sings "Through an endless diamond sky..."
In the Cave of Wonders, the Genie says: "Rule number three. I can't bring people back from the dead. It's not a pretty picture. I don't like doing it." If he doesn't like DOING it, it means he CAN DO it, which contradicts rule number three. So the Genie here is or lying or confused.
During "Prince Ali" when Aladdin arrives in Agrabah at the Sultan's palace, Jafar can be seen trying to keep Aladdin out by holding the front door closed. When Aladdin's elephant (Abu in disguise) pushes the door open, we see Jafar being smashed into the wall behind the door. Then the scene cuts away to Jafar pushing the door away from his face. However, Iago is clearly smashed into the wall beside him despite not being around Jafar just seconds before the door flew open.
When the guards are after Aladdin and Jasmine, Aladdin holds out his right hand and asks Jasmine "Do you trust me?" Jasmine accepts his right hand, but in the next shot, Jasmine is holding Aladdin's left hand.
After "A Whole New World" when they are watching a Chinese dragon, Jasmine discovers Ali is the boy from the market and takes his hat. When she grabs his hat she squeezes it and the lamp is not there, but once dropped off at the palace when Ali is thrown into the ocean, the lamp pops out of his hat.
While in the Cave of Wonders, Abu is seen jumping back and forth on the exploding stones. Before he is rescued by Aladdin, all the stones have exploded except the one he's on. When Aladdin pulls him up, there are two more stones on his right, when in the last shot there were none.
In the movie's opening scene, the peddler in the desert initially casts no shadow in the sunlight. He is briefly obscured by a rock formation, and when he is next visible through a hole in it, a long shadow is suddenly present.
While Jafar has Jasmine chained, she wears a snake bracelet on her right arm. After Jasmine attempts to steal Jafar's staff, Jafar knocks her to the ground, and the bracelet can briefly be seen on her left arm. In following scenes it returns to her right arm.
When on the balcony right before "A Whole New World", Aladdin offers his hand out for Jasmine to grab. His arm is bare, which shows most of the forearm. In the previous and following shots, Aladdin is in his Prince Ali suit, which extends all the way to his wrists.
When Jasmine is pretending to be under the Genie's spell, she gets up and puts the crown Jafar made on her head. Later when Jafar sees Aladdin reflected in the crown he knocks her to the ground, when she hits the ground and looks up, the crown is not on the floor around as it mat have fallen off unnoticed.
During "Prince Ali" sequence when Aladdin arrives in Agrabah, the Genie appears on the balcony with the three women who are admiring Aladdin; the shadow of Aladdin in the procession on the wall underneath them shows that they are on Aladdin's right-hand side. When the shot cuts to the close-up of Aladdin (where Genie gives him more muscles) Aladdin is looking to his left and Genie's magic bolt arrives from Aladdin's left.
In the scene when Jasmine is trying to seduce Jafar to distract him so that Aladdin may seize the lamp, Jafar notices Aladdin's reflection in Jasmine's crown. Jafar is substantially taller than Jasmine. When he notices the reflection after the famous "Kiss", Jasmine's head is looking up at Jafar. It is impossible for the crown to have reflected Aladdin crouching on the floor. It should have reflected Jafar's hat or the ceiling area.
After Aladdin stops the merchant from chopping off Jasmine's hand, he gives the sword to Jasmine, who hides it behind her back. In the very next scene she no longer has the sword, and there is no sign of it in later shots.
When Jafar and the Sultan are talking about Jasmine and her suitors, the mystic blue diamond appears on his ring finger. A few seconds later, the close-up reveals it is on the pinky finger. Once it is zoomed out, however, it has returned to the ring finger.
Prince Ali and Jasmine are on the Chinese Palace rooftop after the "Whole New World" song. A rare "Off Model" character error happens with the Jewel in Aladdin's turban. When they are discussing royalty going out into the public in disguise. The Jewel begins to shrink steadily in size throughout the scene. After Jasmine flicks the feather up on Ali's turban, the jewel is now 25% of its normal size. Extremely noticeable as Ali leans towards Jasmine. The shot cuts to carpet for a second and when we see Ali and Jasmine again, the jewel is restored to nearly correct size, but then we are treated to a rare "Swimming" animation error. The jewel in Ali's turban very noticeably migrates up at least 2 inches in a second.(as though it were alive and moving), The jewel actually leaves the band on camera. The bottom third of the jewel is supposed to be attached to the gold hat band, with the fabric in the front supported and swagged by it to keep the turban high in the front. So the movement can't be caused by the fabric falling in the back pulling it up. The jewel in Ali's turban is correctly drawn and scaled when they return to the palace in the next scene, so that you may make an easy size and placement comparison.
During the Cave of Wonders sequence, Jafar (disguised as a beggar) pulls a knife on Aladdin after the latter gives him the lamp. But after Abu bites Jafar's arm, and Aladdin falls into the cave along with Abu, the knife is gone.
When Gazeem is in the desert with Jafar and pulls the beetle-shaped charm out of his pocket, the inside curve is concave and dips into the piece. When Jafar holds the same piece up to match it with the other half, the connection section now comes outward to fit into the other piece.
During "A Whole New World", the carpet picks a flower off of a window sill for Aladdin to give to Jasmine. As the carpet reaches for the flower, there are only three flowers on the pot, but in the close-up there are at least twice as many.
When Iago, disguised as a flamingo, calls out to Aladdin as Jasmine, he attracts the attention of a dopey-looking flamingo behind him. However, that flamingo was not there in the long shot of the garden that directly preceded the medium shot of the disguised Iago.
When Jafar and Iago first walk up to their hidden chamber, Jafar pulls the string on a lantern and the door opens from left to right. However, when Jasmine is confronting Jafar about the apparent 'sentencing' of Aladdin, Jafar is seen opening the door the opposite way (from right to left) in order to sneak out.
During the second scene, where Jafar is chasing the beetle shaped charm, he can clearly be seen holding the reins of his horse with both hands, with his staff no where in sight. However, after the Cave of Wonders takes its form, he can be seen holding them in his right hand.
In the Arctic Wasteland, the tower rests very close to a cliff with the window high up on the side. During the scene, the window keeps changing locations, especially relative to how much the tower has rolled.
When Aladdin rescues the beggar boy and girl from the wrath of the suitor prince with the whip, the width of the street directly in front of the wooden palace gates can be seen. Later when Jasmine and Aladdin go to the reception stand at the top of that very gate to announce their engagement, the street is now 10 times wider when you look at the crowd. Did they level several blocks of homes for the occasion?
When Jasmine is combing her hair in front of the mirror, she and the entire background is reflected in it. Then when she walks away saying "Father, I had a wonderful time," nothing is reflected in the mirror at all.
Jafar is in the throne room on his knees before the Sultan while being questioned about the "Beheading" of Aladdin. While Jafar is in the kneeling position he is holding his snake headed staff next to him upright in his left hand. The length of the staff has become only about 3 feet high. When Jafar later stands up, it is restored to its original length. The staff can't fold up or telescope like a car antenna. It is shown to be solid and sturdy many times, notably when Jafar uses it to try to prevent the Sultan's Magic Carpet Ride around the Throne Room. Jafar pins the Magic Carpet down with a thud then Sultan forcefully kicks it away.
The appearance of Aladdin changed dramatically during film production. I was an artist of licensed Disney products at the time. I constantly received updated appearance drawings of Aladdin as he was re-developed. Originally Aladdin was a boy about 12 years old. He was made older after a substantial amount of the film had been done. In the process of re-animating the film to match the now 16 year old Aladdin, some parts were overlooked. Particularly in the "Friend Like Me" segment. Compare the size of Abu to Aladdin. In some spots Abu is almost half the size of Aladdin(long shots). When this happens, look at the childish proportions of Aladdin's body. In the film Abu is normally about 10 percent of Aladdin's size.
The tiger bites the seat off the suitor's trousers, allowing the viewer to see his polka-heart boxers. When we see the tiger in the courtyard, he has a part of the same boxer shorts in his mouth. So if he bit off the seat of the trousers, shouldn't he have purple cloth in his mouth?
Genie transforms Jafar into the Evil Genie. Jafar rises and grows larger to fill the giant onion dome of the Throne Room. The view switches to the outside looking down and Jafar as Evil Genie explodes through the onion dome, completely removing the top half of the entire dome. When Aladdin holds the Black Genie Lamp and Jafar comes swirling back down, the hole has transformed to a squarish opening 75 percent smaller than the original opening Jafar had made seconds earlier.
During the " Magic Carpet Ride", the rug swoops down to a pool of water, Both Jasmine and Aladdin look to see their reflections. Another sharp eyed viewer already noticed that Jasmine's flower is on the wrong side, but didn't mention that Aladdin's hair in parted on the wrong side in the reflection as well.
Throughout the "One Jump" scene, the Guards chasing Aladdin have their swords drawn, except when they are moving the sheep out of the way. When Abu snatches a sword from the mouth of the sword swallower one Guard exclaims in fear "Look, He's got a sword!" The Lead Guard exclaims "Idiots, we've all got swords!" Then he draws his sword, followed by the rest of the guards. Their swords were already drawn and above their heads at that point in the chase. Also of note is the dramatic metal against metal sound as the swords are being drawn from the cloth or leather belts at that moment. Other people had determined that the swords were simply kept in their belts not scabbards. What is causing the dramatic metal against metal sound if not a scabbard?
During the Prince Ali parade, Aladdin shakes the hands of some men in a towering pile that Genie has scooped up with a human wheelbarrow. The top five of those men pile onto Aladdin. Then the number of faces grows in the pile, first to six, then seven, then eight faces. When Aladdin lifts the pile, there are six men in it.
Right before the song "Prince Alï", Jafar and the Sultan are shown having a conversation. In this scene, Sultan stuffs a cracker into Iago's mouth, and Iago spits it out. But in later shots, the cracker is gone.
Each time the palace is shown in a long shot, it has a straight, wide road leading up to the palace gates. After Jafar has been turned into a genie trapped in the black lamp, and the spells are broken, everything is restored to its original splendor. However, when the palace is shown to be restored, it no longer has a road leading up to it. The area is packed with houses. Was it put back in the wrong spot?
When Aladdin is shackled to the dungeon wall. The light that falls on him is slanted downward to the right, with the center pane of light in the top row illuminating Aladdin's face. After Abu gets down to Aladdin, Abu makes fun of Jasmine by impersonating a girl and swinging his monkey tail. Aladdin replies" But she was in trouble", just then, Abu jumps up to pick the lock and the panes of light are now angled in the opposite direction. They now tilt downward to the left with Aladdin's face illuminated by the far right pane of light. The light cast by that window changes position and angle constantly.
Jasmine runs up to Jafar to find out the status of the boy,( Aladdin), who is now in his custody. When Jafar tells Jasmine that the sentence has been carried out, "Death, by beheading." Jasmine falls backwards in shock into a seated position on a large ottoman shaped pillow. The pillow appeared out of nowhere. It isn't the pillow on the gold elevated platform in the center of the room with the smoking hooka pipe next to it. This pillow appears right next to Jafar's secret sliding door.
Rajah has backed away from Prince Ali on Jasmine's balcony. It is a still, breeze less night as evidenced by the feather on Prince Ali's turban. After Ali hops down off the balcony wall, Ali's cape is hanging straight down behind him. Jasmine says "You remind me of someone I met in the marketplace", just then, we cut back to Aladdin and his entire cape is fully draped over right right shoulder for no reason.
When the King is stacking the little animal toys next to his throne, he is startled by a large door slam which causes him to lose balance and make the toy animals fall. The noise was from Jafar entering the throne room. But when he is walking up towards the throne you can see behind him that the door is opened about three quarters of the way, not shut or fully opened. Where did the loud door slam noise come from?
After saving Jasmine from the marketplace where Abu stole eight apples. When seen traveling back to Abu and Aladdin's place Abu is clearly carrying three apples all the way back. Suddenly, about 25 seconds after another shot of Abu with three apples, there is an awkwardness as the three of them have only two apples to share.
Jafar, on horseback, starts to follow the leading Scarab. Gazime is on foot as Jafar rides away. Jafar has several shots during the chase, but Gazime is never in sight. Yet they both arrive on horseback at the Cave of Wonders together.
After the Prince Ali Parade has ended, and Jafar is pushing the participants out the door, Ali is standing on Magic Carpet on top of Abu as the elephant. Ali and Carpet lift off and fly towards the Sultan sitting on his throne. As Aladdin swoops up and we get a quick shot showing the 3 marble columns that are each side of the throne. A balcony is on each side of the throne which is only accessible by walking through the columns. When Ali stops and bows to the Sultan. The background behind Aladdin shows all balcony. They forgot to add the columns.
When Aladdin and Abu have arrived in the arctic wasteland, Aladdin catches Abu's hat, but it then disappears. He finds Abu and stuffs him under his vest for warmth, and when Abu emerges he has his hat again.
While Jafar is hypnotising the Sultan, the alcove that the throne sits in disappears. The three columns behind them were originally to the right of the throne and the blue and gold tilework next to the throne alcove is also missing.
When Jafar reveals Aladdin's true self to Jasmine, he is about two inches shorter than her. During the marketplace and rooftop scenes, Aladdin had bare feet and was about four inches taller than Jasmine.
When Aladdin is in the "One Jump" Song sequence, he sings "You're my only friend, Abu" and they swing into a Harem type room. The wall is covered with a giant rug weaving loom. It is in every shot. Then the matronly woman says "I'd blame parents except he hasn't got 'em". She chases him out of the window, The gigantic rug loom that once commanded the entire wall space behind the entire scene has disappeared.
When Aladdin first notices Jasmine enter the marketplace, a side street or wide alley way separates the apple vendor's stand and the melon vendor's stand where Aladdin was sitting on the canopy, (easily seen in the opening long shots). Just after Jasmine is accused of stealing, the two stands are directly next to each other, against the same building, very evident when Aladdin first tries to turn Jasmine around to walk off. Then after Aladdin finally has convinced the apple vendor that Jasmine is crazy, Aladdin says "Come along sis. time to see the doctor", the side street between the two stands has reappeared, and the stands are at least several feet apart.
Aladdin, Magic Carpet and Abu have returned to the evil throne room. Aladdin tries to grab the lamp, but is unsuccessful. Abu runs for it and is turned into a toy cymbal clanging monkey. Magic Carpet swoops down to grab the lamp a split second after Abu is transformed, yet Abu is nowhere in sight on the floor even though he was directly next to the lamp clanging his cymbals.
Near the end of the "Street Rat" song, Aladdin tucks Abu into bed on a little pillow by the window. The next shot from outside, shows Aladdin opening the curtain. Then you next see a shot looking out the window from the room, looking towards the palace. Abu and his little pillow are obviously missing from view. If they show up on the DVD version being released this fall, in a wide screen format view, they still are in the incorrect position. They should be in front of the red pillow.
While Aladdin and Jasmine are resting on the roof of the Chinese Imperial Palace, they shift between a wide shot and a closeup. They are much closer to the edge of the roof and a large roof decoration behind them in the wide shot disappears.
When Abu changes into a small toy when he tries to steal the lamp, he stands close to the lamp. In the next shot, when the Magic Carpet tries to get the lamp, Abu is not there. Then when the Carpet flies a few feet away from Abu, he is changed into a ball of thread, but right before Abu and the Carpet are changed back, the pile of thread is now very close to toy Abu.
Every long shot looking at the Palace shows a single column between the Palace ground walls and the Palace itself, just to the right of the main gate. When the Prince Ali parade is inside the Palace grounds and have started to ascend the staircase, several men carrying plates of gold on their heads walk past that point for an ideal view of this large column. It isn't there.
When the sword swallower in the marketplace has the sword resting fully in his mouth. The handle is at least as thick as a broom handle. When Abu seizes it from the sword swallower's mouth and he is shown with it in later shots confronting the pursuing guards, the handle is now the thickness of a pencil. It was obviously reduced to fit Abu's tiny hands. The change in handle thickness is very evident when Abu places the sword swallower's sword on the ground.
Aladdin sings" Lets not be too hasty" in the "One Jump" chase scene. An overweight woman grabs Aladdin and sings" Still I think he's rather tasty", the part in her hair switches to the other side when Aladdin jumps from her arms to get away.
The reddish orange canopy belonging to the Melon Merchant's stand that Aladdin and Abu are seated on when Jasmine enters the marketplace changes its structure. When Aladdin is seated upon it, it doesn't look strong enough to hold him, but when you see underneath as Abu is snatching a melon, you can see many wooden cross supports. But the fabric sags noticeably between them, the fabric is smooth across on the top when you see Aladdin seated on it. We see the wooden cross supports in other underneath the canopy shots, then near the end when Jasmine is accosted by the Apple vendor, you can now see under the canopy and it now lacks all structural support and is sagging under Aladdin's weight.
As Jafar follows the Scarab, the snakehead staff doesn't appear until he arrives. It disappears again as his horse rears and reappears when he dismounts. A little later it jumps from his right hand to his left while Gazime approaches the cave.
When the Prince Ali Parade bursts into the Throne Room, the bird cage is packed with large, exotic songbirds. When Jafar is pushing the procession out the door, the same cage has twelve tiny birds in a vast, empty cage.
In the Cave of Wonders, Aladdin and Abu have encountered the Magic Carpet. Aladdin says to Magic Carpet, " You see, we're trying to find this lamp". At that point, Abu, now on Aladdin's back, piggy back style, is enormous, and totally out of scale. Abu's head is nearly equal in size to Aladdin's head, and it is easy to make a side by side, or rather" Head to Head", comparision. Consider the arctic wasteland scene where Abu is small enough to fit under one half of Aladdin's tiny vest to warm up. Abu is drawn at least 250 percent too large in this shot.
Jasmine approaches the little boy in the marketplace, he is shown to be very tiny as he tries unsuccessfully to reach over the edge of the apple vendor's stand for an apple. Jasmine says "you must be hungry". The boy's head is now level with the stand, and as he runs away he is much taller, ample height to have snatched the apple in the first place.
When Aladdin and Abu are on the path through the treasure in the Cave of Wonders, the Magic Carpet startles Abu. The background changes from heaps of coins to an assortment of shields, boxes, plates, jugs, and armor. They're still standing in the same place.
Aladdin has pole vaulted to the second rooftop. He starts to place a board across the gap for Jasmine to cross. As Aladdin positions the board to drop it, To the left against the wall are four boards. Two medium, one short and one very long. As the board hits the first building to make the bridge, Jasmine unexpectedly pole vaults over to the second rooftop. While she is in flight, there are now only two boards against the wall. One medium and one short.
After Abu is changed into an elephant, he is still wearing his purple vest. When the guards seize Prince Ali in the palace gardens on Jafar's orders, we see Abu, as elephant, is tied up and hanging in a net-like rope restraint from a palm tree. His vest was not drawn onto his figure, under the ropes.
Jafar is being reprimanded in the Throne room by Jasmine and Sultan for having Aladdin beheaded. Jasmine quickly leaves the scene for a door to the left of the scene. This is the same doorway Sultan and Jafar went through to view the Ali Parade and it dead ended at the balcony. However, we must guess it also leads to a stair case as Jasmine and her father appear at the fountain when Jafar and Iago look down off the back balcony moments later. Jasmine and Sultan made it to the fountain in 20 seconds flat. The balcony is at least 150 feet above the fountain estimated by Jafar's observation point. The fountain is at least 200 feet from the Palace in earlier scenes. How did Jasmine and her father make it so fast without jumping.
When the guards are chasing Aladdin up a scaffold, they throw their weapons up and lodge them in the post. Then they shake the scaffold and the weapons fall out, many point down. These weapons would have impaled the guards below.
Aladdin presents himself as Prince Ali to the Sultan by flying down directly in front of him, about a foot or two away. After Jafar closes the doors to the throne room, Ali and Carpet are now at least 15-20 feet farther back.
After the One Jump scene, Aladdin gives his bread to an urchin girl and walks past Abu into the alley. Abu donates his bread as well, but when he rejoines Aladdin he runs through a dark room, not an alley.
When the Cave of Wonders has closed trapping Aladdin inside. Jafar, in disguise as the old man, looks up and says "Yes." When he does the bizarre crooked teeth are drawn straight and perfect for a second. Later he rips off the soft outer mask and his very crooked prosthetic teeth come with it. Every close-up of Jafar as the old man has shown the bizarre teeth to be fully in his mouth. He should have needed to remove them like dentures.
Just before Aladdin jumps off the rooftop through the clotheslines, he glances down at the clotheslines and the street. Where are the three different canopies that he crashes through, 2 canvas and one of sticks?
Abu threatens the chasing guards with the sword pulled from the sword swallower's mouth during the "One Jump" chase scene. The Head Palace Guard yells "Idiots, We've all got swords." The Head Palace Guard pulls his sword with his left hand from the belt on his right side. When they chased Aladdin past the firewalker just seconds before, we can see that the Head Palace guard was leading and was wearing his sword on his LEFT side, and should have needed to use his right hand to pull it.
After the "One Jump" chase scene has ended, Aladdin and Abu sit down to eat the bread that they had stolen. When they spot the two street urchins, a boy and a girl, they give each one a half of the loaf. Later, the same little boy runs out into the path of the suitor for the Princess. His arms are outstretched with no bread while his sister is running close behind to save him. She carrying half a loaf in her left hand, which instantly switches to her right hand. When the shot pulls in to see her snatch the boy from the suitor's path, the loaf of bread is now one large complete loaf in her right hand.
As Prince Ali and Jasmine begin their "Magic Carpet Ride", they have just cleared the wall of the palace walls by crossing over the top of the front palace grounds gate. Immediately on the other side of the wall are several towers and turrets. One is particularly tall and pointed, just over the wall, next to the gate. The architecture has become much more rich and varied. We have seen many long shots looking at the palace head on. There are no turrets and towers anywhere near the Palace, and the buildings in the area in front of the palace are mostly low, simple and plain adobe buildings.
When Aladdin is being held prisoner in the palace dungeon, he is seated on the floor with his hands secured above his head. A very thick heavy metal chain hangs on the wall in an arc directly to the left to his hand irons. The chain is shown bolted twice to the wall Aladdin is against in the first long shot looking down. The next shot showing Aladdin in this position and the chain is much closer to his shackles, now just inches away. After Abu picks the lock on the shackles, the heavy chain vanishes altogether. The shackles also shrink in length throughout the scene from over 2 feet long at the beginning to under a foot as Abu picks the lock.
Sultan has just entered Jasmine's room and announced that he has found her a suitor - "you will wed Jafar". All of the pillars in Jasmine's room are a deep bronze tan color with wide dark red bands, edged by bright gold. We see several of them as Jafar and Sultan enter Jasmine's room. The pattern is very obvious when we first see Prince Ali leaning against a column with this coloration. As Prince Ali storms up to Jafar to declare "he tried to have me killed", the pattern and color of ALL the columns in Jasmine's room have changed to gold with much smaller and lower bands of pink, and now each column has a large hanging lantern. The columns stay with the new pattern and coloration until the end of the scene. The lighting in the scene hadn't changed to account for the new coloration, and even if it had, that couldn't account for the difference in layout, design and lanterns on the columns.
When we first see Aladdin in the market place, the canopy to the right of the melon booth (where Aladdin is seated) is yellow with a flat top and no fringe. As Abu drops down, it is now reddish orange. When Abu is snatching the melon, the canopy yellow and has a large hanging curtain.
When the Head Palace Guard grabs Aladdin, after Aladdin's fall through the clothes lines. The guard grabs Aladdin with his right hand, (you may need to slow down or freeze the tape to see this ), but pulls Aladdin to himself with his left hand as Aladdin says, "I'm in trouble".
In the opening of the Aladdin in the Dungeon Scene, The camera pans straight down at Aladdin. To the left of Aladdin is a pile of large pots. Directly next to Aladdin is a Large Platter about 3 feet across and a jug standing up next to it. Suddenly as the camera approaches Aladdin closely, the size of the platter and the bottle instantly shrink, on camera, to dinner plate size and cola bottle size, and are just to Aladdin's leg on the left of the frame. After that camera shot,we never see the pots, that plate or that bottle again. Now the floor is totally empty everywhere in the dungeon.
Aladdin has just jumped off a rooftop as being chased by palace guards. He has gone through several clothes lines along the way. He speaks to two ladies after he lands. One lady says "Getting into trouble a little early today, aren't we Aladdin?" He gathers a piece of material over his head as a disguise as he remarks, "You only get in trouble if you get caught". Just then a guard seizes him from behind, leaving the disguise fabric behind. As the fabric falls away, he is not wearing his hat. But when the shot changes and Aladdin says" I'm in trouble" the hat is back on.
The scene that begins with Jasmine in her room brushing her hair after the Magic Carpet Ride. Aladdin walks in and confronts Jafar about trying to have him killed. Two guards seize Jafar. The guards are roughly the same size. The one on the left is about 2-3 inches shorter, but very robust and overweight. After Jafar throws the vial to create clouds of smoke, allowing him to escape, the two guards are now shown holding each other. They release each other to go after Jafar. Now the one on the left is 12-14 inches shorter than the one on the right. He has lost all his upper body bulk, and is barely overweight now.
When Jafar sees Aladdin in the reflection of Jasmine's crown he turns toward him and shots an energy ray of magic at him. Jasmine rushes to stop Jafar and the crown she is wearing simply vanishes for the remainder of the movie.
Sultan runs out of the palace to have a talk with Jasmine, by the fountain, regarding Rajah biting off the seat of the suitor's pants. As Sultan exits the building and runs down the stairs, we can see that the two peacocks on the top of the fountain are back to back with one pointing directly to that staircase exiting the palace and the other pointed directly away. Later after night falls, we can see Jasmine in disguise sneaking by the fountain in an overhead long shot. We can see that the peacocks on top of the fountain have made a one quarter turn, so that neither one points at the palace.
In the first pan down shot of Aladdin in the dungeon, a small staircase and door are just two wall blocks away to the left of the spot Aladdin is sitting. After the opening shot, we can see several blocks in that direction in several different shots from where Aladdin is sitting, and we never see that door or staircase again.
When the scene first showing Jafar and Jasmine opens, The fact that there is a thin crescent moon in the shape of a reversed letter "C" with points to the left, is established. The "Magic Carpet Ride" happens two nights later. When we see the crescent shape as a reflection in the water, the "C" is now the incorrect shape for the reflection. Even as a reflection in the water, the crescent moon still would have looked like a reversed letter "C" with points to the left.
When we first see into Jasmine's room from the balcony, we look through a pair of open doors in an expanse of latticework in front of sheer curtains. The doors are flanking an opening of about 5-6 feet, judging by the size of the lattice pattern, compared to Jasmine standing next to it later. After the "Magic Carpet Ride", Jasmine looks back while walking through the sheer curtains to get one last look at Prince Ali. The doors and latticework on each side of the opening on the VHS tape version don't even show, and the opening shown is at least 15-20 feet wide which is definitely an error. Once the widescreen DVD comes out this fall we will find out if the doors and latticework are lacking altogether at that point.
When Abu and Aladdin enter the first treasure room in the Cave of Wonders, there is a tall rectangular arch in front of them. They meet Carpet just a few feet in front of it. Somehow, though, they never actually pass through it.
Jafar attempts to stop the Sultan from taking a Magic Carpet ride around the throne room by holding the carpet to the floor with his snake head staff. Iago, the parrot, is holding onto the smooth part of the staff when the Sultan looks up at Jafar. In error, Iago is shown with three long toes on each foot rather than two on each. Iago is supposed to have two long toes on each foot and one very tiny toe that forms a heel. This fact shows up often in the rest of the film. It is extremely rare for a lead character in a Disney Feature Film to be drawn "Off Model".
After Aladdin has landed on the ground after he jumped through clotheslines, emptying them all along the way, Aladdin glances up and a guard on the rooftop says "You won't get away so easy". All the clotheslines are still completely covered in clothing.
As Aladdin has jumped off the rooftop and is falling through multiple lines of clothing, he falls to the second set of two side by side clotheslines, which he slides down (he has a white bra on at this point). Aladdin heads straight for a window. A woman hanging clothing out that window drops her clothespins and clothing and quickly shuts the shutters. From Aladdin's view approaching the window there are two clotheslines tied to a peg above the window completely covered in clothing. When the angle switches to the side to show the impact, now there is only one clothesline going to that peg with no clothes hanging on it. Also how does anyone hang clothes out on a clothesline that is tied to a peg on the building with no pulley? Do they go out hand over hand?
As Aladdin is sinking in the ocean, he sees his turban falling as well. This turban doesn't match his earlier one: it lacks the gold brim that goes all the way around the Prince Ali hat and the fabric that hung down around Prince Ali's neck. This turban has a very wide white border, a much smaller jewel and feather, and is very round, almost like a helmet.
When Aladdin is on the roof with the loaf of bread, the lines on the loaf are pretty close together. but after he jumps and says "You think that was easy?", the lines are further away from each other, and remain that way for the rest of the scene.
When Jafar entered the throne room and attempted to hypnotize the Sultan into letting him marry the Princess the spell is broken by the sound of the Prince Ali parade. They ran to the balcony to see the commotion, then the Sultan ran to the throne room door to open it to let the procession in. Both doors were fully closed although Jafar left one side of the double doors open when he entered a few minutes before. No one else was in the throne room and there is a tremendous staircase leading up to that door from the outside.
Aladdin is holding the Black Genie Lamp as Jafar is swirling down into it. Just before the moment of impact, Aladdin removes his left hand from the base of the lamp, and grasps the handle with his left hand, Instantly, his left hand is back around the base again. You can see it well at full speed, but is much more startling on slow motion play.
As Princess Jasmine is sneaking out at night to run away from the palace, she is wearing a peasant gown with a small thin scarf around her neck. As she is climbing a tree to go over the palace wall, Raja, her tiger, grabs the scarf to pull her back. The tiny scarf has grown to superhero cape proportions, particularly in the shot looking back at Raja's face with the scarf in his mouth. After Princess Jasmine has stopped to reassure Raja that she will be all right, she turns to climb the tree again and the scarf has returned to its short, tiny and slender form.
Jasmine and her father are speaking by the fountain about the law preventing a princess from marrying anyone except a prince. As they walk towards the fountain in a dramatic downshot, it is apparent that the water in the fountain has no lily pads floating in it and the water is rapidly moving from the water spilling into it from above. When Jasmine swishes her hand through the water in a closeup shot, the surface now is covered with lily pads and is still.
Near the end of the "One Jump" chase scene, the guards are chasing Aladdin and jump out the window as Aladdin jumps out with the carpet he uses to glide to safety. The swords the guards have been carrying have totally disappeared from their hands, (and are not in their belts), all the way down to the manure cart.
When Jasmine refuses to marry Jafar, she picks up a glass of wine from a table and throws its contents at Jafar. What table is this? We don't see it before that moment, or after. Our only glimpse of that table is a small glance at the top as the glass is lifted.
In the scene with Jafar as a snake, he is told by Aladdin that the Genie has more power than he will ever have, "He gave you your powers, he could take them away". Jafar as snake replies, "You're right, his power does exceed my own". After Jafar says this, watch his mouth as he speaks the next few lines of dialog. His lower set of teeth begin to vanish on camera. This happens when his face is filling the screen for a great view of his vanishing then missing teeth.
The earring Genie wears is often missing throughout the film. Notably in parts of the "Never Had A Friend Like Me" segment. When Genie has on a white Tux on and is dancing with the hands. Then later, when Aladdin is about to kiss the Harem girl and Genie takes her place and sings, "I'm on the job, You Big Nabob."
Prince Ali is lying back, face up on carpet, has just landed in the garden after dropping off Jasmine following the "Magic Carpet Ride." The guards seize Aladdin and turn him onto his belly to shackle him. A guard ties a gag around Ali's mouth that goes around to the back of his head on the outside of the fabric that hangs down around his turban. Instantly, it is underneath that fabric that hangs down. Also of note is the fact that the cape is secured under his hands, but as he travels down to, and then through the water, it is fluttering above his head. However, one of the guards could have pulled it out when he is moved to the water's edge.
When Aladdin is first speaking with Jasmine on the palace balcony dressed as Prince Ali. Genie's lamp is under Prince Ali's silk hat (during the point when Genie is a bee). Aladdin is threatened by Rajah and he removes his hat and holds it by the top center (open part facing down) to shoo away the tiger. The Genie lamp is not on his head or in the silk hat. Shortly thereafter, the Genie as a bee goes back into the lamp under his silk hat and it is plain to see how large the lamp is and that it would be impossible for it not to be seen with the hat off. Then Ali and Jasmine fly off on the "Magic Carpet Ride". After the ride, Jasmine, suspecting Ali is Aladdin, unexpectedly rips the hat off his head to reveal his hair. No lamp again. But when he returns to the palace and Ali is snatched by the guards, the lamp is under his hat when the hat falls off as he is thrown into the ocean.
The curtain in Aladdin's rooftop home changes size between when he first opens it, when he shows Jasmine, and a reverse shot from outside. The inside shots also show the bottom edge to be jagged, but it is straight and smooth from the outside.
After Aladdin and Abu have given their bread to the hungry street urchins, they step towards the street to see the commotion. Aladdin looks up at the Suitor for the Princess and looks at the LEFT side of the Prince. When the street urchin kids run past Aladdin into the Prince's path, Aladdin is on the RIGHT side of the prince, across the street.
When Jafar first opens the wooden door that leads directly into his workshop,( Not the secret sliding door), the knob is on the right and the door opens to the left. After Aladdin accuses Jafar of trying to have him killed, Jafar escapes and again appears before the wooden door to his workshop, It now has the knob on the left and opens to the right. The shape of the door and design of the knob have also changed slightly.
Sultan runs out of a wing of the palace to confront Jasmine about Rajah biting the Suitor pants. The opening long shot establishes that the bird cage is on the right side of the fountain,( looking towards the palace). Later that night, when Jasmine is sneaking away through the garden, The bird cage is shown in the long panning downshot to be on the other side of the garden, and now a TOWERING structure as well. In the birdcage's place is a gazebo of some sort.
Aladdin and Jasmine climb a ladder onto the first roof on their way to his secret home. They climb over the edge onto the first roof. Behind them is a towering, dark, reddish orange building. The shot changes to a shot looking down on the scene, and the building behind them changes to bright yellow. Once Jasmine jumps to the second rooftop and throws the vaulting stick to Aladdin, the large building in the background behind Aladdin and Abu has disappeared entirely and has been replaced by sunset skies.
Prince Ali and Jasmine are taking off on their "Magic Carpet Ride". Just before Prince Ali begins to sing, They swoop over the top of the gates exiting the palace grounds. The massive brackets leading to the hinges on the palace ground gates are on the inside of the door rather than the outside where they belong. As a special note. these are the Brackets and hinges shown during the Prince Ali parade entrance. One of three distinctly different variations shown in the film. Also, the staircases used by Jasmine and Prince Ali the very next day, leading to the reviewing stand above the palace grounds gates, are missing as well.
One half of the Scarab is female (missing a half circle) and one is male (extends a half circle). Gazime pulls the female from his shirt and shows Jafar. Iago snatches the female Scarab from Gazime and drops the male into Jafar's hand. Jafar takes the female half out of his pocket. They aren't identical: the male has a head and the female does not.
As the Sultan addresses the people near the end, we can see two large columns on each side of the reviewing stand topped with onion domes. Jasmine coaxes Aladdin up the stairs and the large columns are missing.
When Prince Ali and Jasmine are resting on the Chinese Palace, Aladdin says, "I really am a Prince," and tilts his head and body toward Jasmine. Pause this frame. Aladdin's head is enormous compared to the size of his body. Later, as he and Jasmine cuddle, his build is almost exactly the same as hers, though in other scenes he is much more muscular.
During the "One Jump" song Aladdin sings "You're my only friend Abu", and the both swing into the harem. From the outside the window is so small Aladdin just makes it through feet first. However once inside the window is very large. A harem girl wraps a scarf around Aladdin and spins him into the matron. She chases him back to the same exact spot where the window was, and now it is a large balcony that the girl pushes him off.
When the Sultan finds Jasmine by the fountain after Prince Achmed leaves, Jasmine takes a piece of his boxers, throws it away, and pats Raja. A few shots later, we see the area on the ground where the boxers should have been, and they are gone.
Thoughout the scene involving the Apple Vendor, the support on the left side of his canopy is a large and obviously forked tree branch. Then, at the end, after Abu takes a bow and spills all of his stolen goodies from his vest, the Apple Vendor hollers out," Stop, you little thieves". The support on the left side of his stand is very shown next to him, is an single, straight and unforked branch.
While Aladdin is in the stranded in the frozen wasteland, the scene cuts back to the newly evil Palace now sitting on the hilltop. You can see stairs leading up to the throne room doors. When Aladdin returns and flies by this same spot, the stairs are gone. An interesting note here is that both of the mentioned views only show the Palace itself on the mountain top, without the surrounding walls and gardens. When Jafar has become a Genie and is being sucked down back into the palace, (on the mountain top), the shot looking down at the palace shows it to have its walls and gardens still attached.
When the Sultan was discussing marriage with Jasmine while she was holding a white bird from the cage in her yard, he takes the bird and holds it between his hands and as she walks by, his hands are switched.
The Prince Ali parade climbs the staircase to the throne room. Watch this scene in slow motion, or frame-by-frame and you will see that Jafar disappears as the Sultan opens the door. There is no obstacle in front of the door where Jafar is supposedly slammed into the wall, and the doors swing open through the Sultan. Also, Iago suddenly appears crushed on Jafar's shoulder.
At the end of the One Jump sequence, the Head Palace Guard and two others stop Aladdin a the top of a staircase. He is missing a tooth. Shortly after, the guards all jump out the window and the missing tooth has reappeared as he grits his teeth. Slowmo helps.
In the Prince Ali parade, the monkeys are on top of wooden poles, with wooden cross member arms, with bells hanging from them. When Jafar is pushing the participants out of the Throne room doors, we see one of the monkeys and the bells are missing from the pole he is sitting on.
After the famous scene in which the Sultan, Jasmine's father, is stacking the toys which includes the "Beast" from Beauty and the Beast, Jafar enters the room and the force of the door shutting startles the Sultan, causing the stack of toys to fall. After the point in their conversation when the Sultan pulls out his magnifying eyepiece to study the law scroll, the table and toys that fell disappear for the rest of the scene. This is very clear when the sultan jumps up to view the Prince Ali parade.
When the Suitor slams the palace gates in Aladdin's face, they have large, scrolled iron brackets extending across the doors from the hinges. When the Prince Ali parade goes through them, they have massive flat iron bars attached to the hinges held on with giant nails. Later, when the Sultan announces that Jasmine has chosen a suitor, the doors no longer have hinges or brackets at all. The carving in the doors also changes between these shots.
After Aladdin has been captured, Jasmine storms up to Jafar as he is exiting his secret lair which is hidden behind a sliding wall. When Jafar realizes the Princess is approaching he hastily closes the door on Iago the parrot. When Iago calls out he "can't breathe" the pattern carved into the bottom of the sliding door disappears, but reappears once Jafar kicks Iago back into the secret lair.
Jafar hyponotizes the Sultan to steal the Mystic Blue Diamond. A dramatic downward shot of the Sultan walking toward his model of the Palace shows a entire collection of large artifacts against the wall to his left: a Pegasus sculpture, a gold carriage, a gold globe, and an assortment of pillows on the floor. As Jafar leaves, these items have disappeared.
When Genie explains to Aladdin what wishes he can and can't have, the lamp is visible on the ground in front of Aladdin, but in the shot where Genie says, "Other than that, you've got it," the lamp has disappeared from the ground.
Aladdin and Jasmine climb over the edge onto the first rooftop on their way to Aladdin's secret hideout. As they climb over, the wall around the roof has a very flat top with sharply defined edges as well as deep crevices indicating that it is made from large blocks. In the next shot looking down the same wall has a very smooth rounded adobe top with no lines or crevices on the top or sides.
Aladdin is scaling the stairs that lead to the lamp in the "Cave of Wonders". The downshot as Aladdin just begins to climb, shows all of the steps are deeply recessed into the rocks. As Aladdin climbs, a distant silhouette shot shows Aladdin climbing stairs projecting from the rocks. When Aladdin reaches the summit, all steps are recessed except the last five. Once Abu takes the jewel from the idol's hands, the cave begins to collapse. As Aladdin runs down the stairs, all of the steps now project outward substantially from the rocks.
When Aladdin has just escaped with Jasmine from the Apple Vendor problem, and have climbed onto a roof top, a long shot shows the building rooftop that they must leap to next door is exactly the same distance apart from the front to the back of the building they where first on. It looks like 12-15 feet apart. When Aladdin makes the leap, the view from the alley way showing Alladin's leap between the buildings shows they are are substantially further apart, 25-30 feet, and situated more corner to corner than side by side. But when he lands they are side by side again.
Directly after the "One Jump" sequence, Aladdin rescues the two beggar children from the wrath of the Suitor for the Princess. The Suitor Prince knocks Aladdin into a mud puddle where he stays for several seconds. The streets are crowded with onlookers who laugh. The Suitor says "You were born a Street Rat, you'll die a Street Rat and only your fleas will mourn you". When the scene changes back to Aladdin and he claims not to have fleas, the entire street is deserted except for him. What happened to the crowd in 5 seconds? When he turns to walk away with Abu, Where is all the mud that was all over him seconds before?
After Aladdin jumps of the roof while being pursued by the guards, once he reaches the second clothesline and has picked up a white bra, his pants are lacking the patch and are now painted mustard yellow in error for several seconds.
After Jafar has wished to become Sultan, look behind Jasmine and the Sultan: the pattern on the low walls has ovals leaning to the left. Later, when Iago says "Let's all give a warm Agrabah welcome to Sorcerer Jafar," the oval pattern leans to the right.
We can see in the first half of the film "Aladdin", that the garden with the peacock fountain occupies the entire back walled yard. We see this as Sultan runs out to Jasmine, as Jafar looks down from a throne room balcony, we see this as Jasmine sneaks off at night, as Prince Ali flies down from Jasmine's balcony. We have also seen the side yard, As Prince Ali takes off with Jasmine we can see the small side yard of the palace as they fly over it to the left looking at the back of the palace. Where is the GIGANTIC garden area called the menagerie, which has the enormous marble columns going to a giant overhang. With giant reflecting pools of water with flamingos. Prince Ali is tricked by Iago into thinking Jasmine has called him into the Menagerie. We have a grand view looking out upon a walled landscape that goes on forever. How are they hiding this paradise. We can also see the side palace grounds walls from the front views of the palace and they are very close to the palace itself.
Just as Aladdin takes the sword from the apple vendors hand and passes it to Jasmine, the entire back and second shelf of the vendors stand disappears for several seconds. A blank canopy against the wall is in its place.
When Jafar is called before the Sultan to answer why he had Aladdin beheaded, the scene opens with a dramatic shot looking down on the throne room. You can see Jafar, Jasmine and Sultan from above. You can also see three large pieces of furniture on the carpet around the throne. Those pieces of furniture disappear entirely after the initial opening shot. It's easy to see when Jafar says "Marry the shrew" and sits on the throne, and the closing shot which is a reverse of the opening, minus the vanished furniture.
Aladdin begins to scale the stairs leading to the lamp in the "Cave of Wonders". Aladdin first looks up the staircase and the stones lining the stairs are Huge, small, huge, small, huge, etc. When he begins his ascent and the shot looks down, the rocks lining the staircase are all equal in size compared to the originals.
Jasmine and her father speak by the fountain of the "Suitor Business and the law requiring a Princess to marry a Prince". Jasmine gets up and takes eight steps to reach the bird cage. After Sultan replaces the bird, we see a long down shot of Sultan walking back to the fountain with Jasmine, they are at least 30 steps away, three times farther than walking towards it.
When Jafar first enters his secret lair, he pulls a cord from a lantern suspended to the left of the secret sliding wall door. The next shot comes from the other side of the secret door as it slides open to reveal Jafar and Iago before they enter. The door slides open in the opposite direction for the remainder of the film. Notably when Iago gets stuck in it.
Throughout the movie, whenever Aladdin is dressed as the "Street Rat", he wears pants that are very baggy with a crotch below the knees. When Aladdin is prisoner in the dungeon, seated and shackled to the wall, his pants are like modern sweatpants with full legs and a regular crotch. They conveniently become more pants-like when necessary for running, jumping, Etc.
When Aladdin enters his rooftop hideaway, the curtain over the window is supported by a peg on each side. The curtain sags down it the middle to show this fact. When Aladdin opens it later, it slides over as though it were on a curtain rod. Also of note, our first look at the curtain shows it going all the way to the floor. When he tucks Abu in, then turns to open it, the curtain is now above the rim of the wall and less torn. When he slides the curtain open, Aladdin is by Abu on the right of the window, he never takes any steps, but once the curtain is open, Aladdin is on the far left of the window 12 feet away and sits down.
After Aladdin is knocked out by the guards, he is thrown into the sea. His head gear floats down and starts to unravel as if it were a turban but throughout the rest of the movie, when in his Prince Ali outfit, his head gear is simply a hat.
When Aladdin is shackled in the dungeon seated against the wall with his hands above his head he is bathed in moonlight coming through a window. The camera actually pans from the window directly to Aladdin so that the light source is definite. The window has nine open panes, the light it casts has 12 panes.
At the climax, Aladdin sneaks up to the lamp and we see his hand is only an inch away when the metal fruit dish falls. He remains motionless as Jasmine kisses Jafar. But after Jafar sees Aladdin's reflection, Aladdin is much farther from the lamp.
When Iago is trapped in the secret door as Jasmine runs up to Jafar, he loses some feathers. He is then kicked down the passage and the feathers have disappeared, but new ones are flying off. Iago forces the door open later and the second batch of feathers is now missing as well.
When Jafar, disguised as an old man in the dungeon scene, first tells Aladdin of the "Cave of Wonders", to the left of where Aladdin is seated, you can see down a corridor, 20-30 feet deep, to a small set of stairs with an arched door at the top. When the old man puts his face right up to Aladdin's face and says "You've heard of the Golden Rule, haven't you", we look in the same direction as before, however, now a solid block wall has appeared just three stone blocks away from where Aladdin is still seated.
After Ali is introduced to the Sultan and Jafar, Jafar walks forward. There is a large gold lamp present in every other scene that should be in front of the panel Jafar is in front of; it is missing here.
Sultan and Jasmine are confronting a kneeling Jafar in the Throne Room about having the boy beheaded. The opening is a long shot looking down, The runner rug leading to the Throne is 4-5 feet wide as we see Jafar kneeling on it. Later when the Sultan joints Jasmine's and Jafar's hands, the view shows the participants on a runner that has tripled in width.
As the guards chasing Aladdin run over the hot coals and their shoes are catching on fire, The sword in the belt of the guard in the lead disappears from his belt halfway across the coals and then reappears after he has made it across to the dirt street again.
When Princess Jasmine enters the marketplace, a small street urchin boy is trying to grab an apple off the apple vendor's stand. She walks over and says "you must be hungry". At the point that you only see the boy's face looking up at Jasmine, look to the left of the boy's face - the apples he was reaching for are wrapped in a brilliant blue silk cloth. In every other shot they are in a wicker basket.
Another mistake spotter mentions that Aladdin's patch on his pants changes location throughout the movie. Well it actually disappears completely in too many spots to mention. Notably, the part of the "One Jump" song sequence when Aladdin sings "Let's not be too hasty" and a large woman sings back, "Still I think he's rather tasty". Another obvious spot is when Aladdin states" I don't have fleas" and turns to walk away from the palace gate.
When Aladdin first enters his secret home during the "Street Rat" song sequence, He steps through an arched doorway, spreads out his arms, and looks around his room. That same arched door is halfway down a flight of stairs when he brings Jasmine up to his place later in the film.
In the opening scene when the vendor arrives on his camel, a door and window are directly behind them. The window is a large standard size and close to the door. After the vendor sets up his stand, that window, for the rest of the sequence is very small, very high up and located a ways from the door. This is very evident when the vendor says "This is no ordinary lamp."
In the beginning of the movie when Aladdin is running from the guards, he jumps of the rooftops and in a pile of laundry. Three women are standing at a window laughing, but in the next shot there are only two women.
The long panning shot of the dungeon scene comes to a stop at Aladdin seated and shacked to the wall. His hands are shackled to blocks on the third row up from the floor, the next shot they are shackled to blocks in the fourth row from the floor.
When Jasmine first enters the marketplace and is noticed by Aladdin. Abu and Aladdin are on a reddish awning belonging to the stand of the Melon Merchant. The stand next door sells apples and has a yellowish canopy. When Jasmine is accused of stealing the apple and the vendor has raised his sword to cut her hand off, she is positioned directly between the right side of the Apple sellers stand and the Melon Stand (melons visible behind Jasmine's head as she is exclaiming NO). Aladdin stops the sword and takes it away from the apple merchant and passes it to Jasmine. They start walking past the neighboring melon stand, then suddenly they are on the far left side of the apple stand.
Jasmine has returned to her balcony after the "Magic Carpet Ride". Throughout the ride and balcony scene, Prince Ali's hair has been noticeably hanging out in the front of his turban. Even as Ali falls back on the Magic Carpet, and they make the descent back to the garden, and Ali lands face up on the ground, lots of hair is sticking out. When the guards hands appear in the frame to grab Ali, his hair becomes completely tucked under his turban for the entire time the guards shackle him and knock him out.
The decor changes so much in Aladdin's rooftop hideaway between the time we first see it and the next day when he takes Jasmine to see it, that it is too difficult to list them all. Some examples, The curtain is now much shorter and much more jagged on the bottom. A boarded up window has appeared to the left of the large window.
During the scene where the Magic Carpet picks up Abu's hat and gives it back, the hat disappears off Abu's head. Abu puts it back on and yells at Magic Carpet. Magic Carpet then walks aways dejectedly. When Aladdin calls him back, the shot shows Abu without the hat on. When the Carpet goes past them to show them where the lamp is, it's back on Abu's head.
After the Suitor to the Princess storms out, the Sultan runs toward Jasmine seated at the fountain. The long shot positions the bird cage in the foreground at least a hundred yards away from the fountain. When Jasmine walks to the bird cage from the fountain, she only requires eight tiny steps to reach it.
There are several balconies used in different scenes: Jasmine's sitting room, Jasmine's bedroom, the Sultan and Jafar's balcony during the parade, the balconies behind the throne, and the Genie's balcony in the end. However, no shot of the palace shows any of these or their flanking columns, though the ones with a view of the parade should be located on the front.
When Jasmine escapes from the palace, we see her blue bottoms showing through her coat. After the tiger comes and she goes up the tree, we see her blue bottoms, yet when it cuts to a close up of her leg, the coat is a lot shorter and there is no bottom of the trousers to be seen.
When Aladdin has been trapped in the Cave of Wonders and Jafar (disguised as an old man) is gloating, he opens up his coat to get the lamp, realises it's gone and pats himself over with his coat still unbuttoned. As soon as his hands leave his body however (right before it cuts to a wide shot of him screaming) his coat magically buttons up again.
Throughout the movie, whether Aladdin is in Street Rat clothing or in Prince Ali attire, he wears the same exact waistband. It has two distinct styles that constantly change throughout the movie, with either outfit. One style is flat on the bottom; the other has a dramatic point downward in the front. The detail lines across it change constantly as well in many scenes.
When Aladdin is talking to the ladies after his fall through the clotheslines, he has a beige fabric over himself as a disguise. The guard grabs a big handful of the beige fabric with the back of Aladdin's vest underneath. One sixtieth of a second later, the guard has managed to grab Aladdin, get rid of the beige fabric between his hand and the vest, turn Aladdin completely around and have Aladdin held in the air by clutching both halves of his open vest in the front with one fist.
The front and reverse shots of the opening of the Cave of Wonders show differences as Aladdin enters. The bottom teeth and most of the upper teeth disappear, the mouth changes shape, the epiglottis is gone, and the mysterious light has disappeared.
When Jasmine is walking through the marketplace, one of the vendors yells "Fresh fish. We catch them, you buy them". In one shot, his thumb is in front of the fish's fin, and in the next shot it is behind the fin.
In the scene where Aladdin is on a rooftop, the Head Palace guard states, "I'll have your hands for a trophy, Street Rat". Then Aladdin jumps off the rooftop through the clothes lines. Aladdin lands on the ground and just catches the falling loaf of bread when the same guards are already in the street several houses away coming towards him. How could they have gotten down faster than someone who jumped, then appear some distance away?
During the apple vendor scene in the marketplace, the vendor says to Aladdin (while picking Aladdin up by his vest and spinning him around away from Jasmine) "She says she knows the Sultan," and Aladdin responds "She thinks the monkey is the Sultan". At this point the large, branched, canopy support on the left side of the apple stand is missing entirely.
In the Market Place, the Rug Vendor's stand is next to and to the left of the Apple Vendor's stand, ( Where Jasmine is accused of stealing). The rug stand goes through multiple changes. First as Jasmine walks past the Rug Vendor's stand, it has a large window with open shutters on the wall behind it, in the center under the canopy, with no rugs hanging up. Then as she is told by the Apple Vendor, " You better be able to pay for that", the Rug Vendor's stand to the left has nothing on the wall behind it at all. As Aladdin and Jasmine are leaving the scene, Jasmine says to the camel, " Why, Hello Doctor" and the Rug vendor's stand has rugs hanging all over the entire wall.
Jasmine and Prince Ali sit on top of the Chinese Imperial Palace to watch a fireworks show including bursts of Pinks, Greens, Purples and Blues. The only available colors prior to 1850 are white and pale yellow.
The animators have clearly tried to make all the writing in the film look Arabic. However in one scene we see the faces of Jafar and the Sultan as they read a scroll. Their eyes move from left to right; Arabic is read right to left.
At the beginning "Prince Ali", Genie (disguised as the master of ceremonies) bumps into a man drinking wine from leather canteen (the wine is visible as the man spits it). Alcohol consumption, in particular publicly, is forbidden in Islam.
After Jasmine finds out that Prince Ali is the boy from the market, she is angry with him for lying to her and demands that he tell her the truth. She doesn't say anything about him being arrested and Jafar telling her that he had the boy beheaded. One would think that would be the first thing she would have asked him about.
Genie offers to restore Aladdin as a prince instead of gaining his freedom, but why would Aladdin need to wish to be a prince again? He already wished to be one so unless the wish has an expiration date on it, this doesn't make sense.
The Cave of Wonders says: "Only one may enter here, one whose worth lies far within. A diamond in the rough." but then, Aladdin AND Abu enters the Cave. So, what was stopping Iago at the beginning of the movie flying into the Cave and grab the lamp if the Cave of Wonders ignores animals?
If Jafar had the ability to hypnotize the sultan with his snake staff, why did he even require the magic lamp in the first place? Essentially, he already had control of the kingdom, as he could easily hypnotize the sultan to do anything he wanted. Additionally, rather than exploiting a legal loophole to force the sultan to give him Jasmine's hand in marriage, Jafar could simply hypnotize Jasmine and command her to accept his marriage proposal. While it's possible the snake staff had certain limitations (it only works on one person or for a short time, etc.), as the film stands these powers are poorly defined.
At the end, when genie is freed, he gives the lamp to Aladdin but his third wish was to free the genie, so even if the genie wasn't freed the wish still wouldn't have worked as Aladdin had made three wishes.
Immediately after Aladdin decides not to free Genie, he upsets Abu (in elephant form) and Carpet, who then disappear from a window's view. In doing so, they pass behind a decorative perforation pattern which borders the window, but it is not possible to see them through the holes.
