Revealing mistake: Jafar (rather, Vizier Maghreb) throws a tantrum after the Sultan's decision to give power to his daughter. In the following scene, he is going out with the Sultana. The scenery shown has an incredibly fake CGI feeling, including some suspiciously static human figures on a green lawn. To confirm the suspicions, once the market scene is over and the Vizier winks Aladdin into his grasp, the same panoramic view, verbatim, is presented, including the same ant-like static human figurines on the lawn. (00:04:05 - 00:10:55)

Revealing mistake: A basket with fireworks catches fire. When the basket is flung into the air, they forgot to add the CGI for it, so it's not burning at all. But the effect is there in the second shot, when Aladdin bicycle kicks it away. (00:06:00)

Continuity mistake: After Aladdin meets the 'Sultana' for the first time, with his buddies informing him about what just happened, throughout the whole scene the same extras move with jumpy continuity between shots. Very recognizable the veiled pink girl and a really tall dude in a brown robe, or Aladdin's friend himself at the beginning. (00:09:35)

Revealing mistake: Aladdin's friends are trying to explain to him that he just met the new ruler of the city. The friend, Dariush, says "Allah has given him eyes and he doth not see." Zamir, the friend with the British accent (that kinda feels like a mistake on its own) interrupts him; "Stop that. You're not a holy man." And by "interrupting" I mean that literally cuts him off as Dariush began to say the word "Words", from his following line "Words of the righteous may fall from any lip", which obviously make sense only as a retort to Zamir. The actor messed up and was blurting his line early. (00:09:40)

Continuity mistake: When Aladdin deals with the three objects in front of the tic-tac-toe pattern, the ones which have vases on top with arms have a different orientation in every shot. (00:16:45)

Revealing mistake: Aladdin uses the rope horizontally to move past the fire on the floor. Obvious CGI flames get to his clothes and to him, but he does not break a sweat or feel any pain. (00:17:55)

Continuity mistake: Aladdin hopscotches through the lava pit; he has no wand in hand when viewed from behind, but in close-ups he is firmly holding it in his left. (00:18:00)

Continuity mistake: Aladdin has destroyed the last of the illusionary lamps; In the side view he puts the wand vertical and holds it with the left hand above the right hand. Cut, and it's the exact opposite. (00:20:15)

Continuity mistake: Aladdin wakes up in the cave after the Vizier shoved him in. Kneeling, he picks up the lamp with his right. "This makes you Sultan?" he asks, with the lamp in his left. (00:22:50)

Revealing mistake: Aladdin and his friends are in the middle of nowhere outside of the cave. At the beginning of the take when Zamir says "Start properly, from the beginning", Havon Baraka is looking straight into the camera, turning his eyes to the others only later. (00:24:25)

Continuity mistake: Talking about the lamp, the British-Arabian friend of Aladdin says "There's something more below the surface here." Naveena in frame has her hair behind the ear, but at the cut, she has her ear covered by a long bang. It keeps switching back and forth depending on the camera angle. (00:25:10)

Continuity mistake: A tipsy Aladdin asks during the banquet "How do you know our songs?" He is holding his wine glass in the left hand, it was in his right a moment before. (00:29:15)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: Aladdin's friends are getting into a burping contest (no, really). Naveena says "That stench is worse than a dead camel's backside." without holding her glass, which is in her hand in the shots before and after. (00:29:30)

Revealing mistake: In the middle of the desert banquet scene, sand is lifted off the ground a second before the genie belches. (00:29:40)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: The genie changes Aladdin's clothes into those of a prince (so we are told), but his face remains dirty. Except in the close-ups, when it's nice and clean. (00:33:25)

Continuity mistake: The Genie creates a royal palace for Aladdin, who pranks him, acting unimpressed. He then cracks up and throws an arm over his shoulder. He is holding the lamp in that hand, but at the cut, he's holding it in the other hand. (00:35:20)

Continuity mistake: As the Vizier is creeping the Sultana out with backrubs, a servant pops abruptly in frame with a message on a platter. He is holding the platter in a different way (thumb fully on it when he talks about the white horse) between shots. (00:37:10)

Revealing mistake: "Prince Ali" descends on a magic carpet surrounded by fireworks...in a hall that is roughly 20 feet high. The scene is played 'straight' and not as parody. (00:39:10)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: When Aladdin lands with his magic carpet in front of (not) Jasmine, (not) Jafar and two guards, the guards have their weapons at rest while just mere frames earlier they were pointing a spear and a sword at him. (00:39:20)

Continuity mistake: The genie poofs Aladdin's friends into a room. During that scene, Naveena's hair is styled differently depending on the shot angle. It either has visible bangs, or does not. (00:40:35)

Vizier Maghreb: A Sultan leads and punishes as needed. Only a man can know these things.
Shahzadi: A real man doesn't need a genie to accomplish them!
Vizier Maghreb: Perhaps, but it helps.
