The movie provides more background about the Indian origins of Princess Jasmine. Her mother came from the kingdom of Shehrabad, which is hypothetically located in Southern Asia. Her tiger's name is Rajah (after various rulers of the Indian sub-continent). Her outfits and jewelry are stylized in Indian fashion. And the fragrant flower from which her name comes from, Jasmine, is of Indian origin. See more »
In "A Whole New World" the long shots looking down at Aladdin from a distance show him holding the Magic Carpet's tassels to steer, but in the closeups his hands are at his sides or on the carpet in front of him, with the tassels blowing in the wind. See more »
Do you know what I had to do to get the power that I have? The sacrifices that I've made? The bodies that I've buried? The five years spent in a Sherabad jail? People need to understand that they will pay for underestimating me. Second is not enough! And it will never be enough! That's why I need the lamp, and why I no longer need you!

SPOILER: Part of the closing credits are shown over the weddings of Aladdin with Jasmine and Genie with Dalia, where everyone dances to "Friend Like Me". This came from the Broadway performance of Aladdin, which ends with the cast performing "Friend Like Me". See more »
With the exception of Will Smith whom I have always liked as an actor, this movie and the CGI will never compare to the original with Robin Williams.
I am soooo tired of Hollywood remaking movies to make more money in the inner circle. nothing creative anymore. It's simply about making money$$$$. Its just regurgitation. Hollywood is no longer creative, with some small exceptions, and is clearly in the business of remaking movies over and over again.
