Aladdin

A young thief, Aladdin, is asked by the sultan's evil advisor, Jafar, to steal a lamp. He does so, but his pet monkey Abu steals the lamp back. Aladdin discovers that the lamp contains a genie that can grant him three wishes. With the help of the genie, he must propose to Princess Jasmine, defeat Jafaar, and save the kingdom.

Factual error: 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.

Genie: Yo, Rugman! Haven't seen you in a few millennia. Give me some tassel.

Trivia: Because Robin Williams ad-libbed or improvised so many of his lines, the film was ruled ineligible for the Adapted Screenplay category at the Academy Awards.

Question: When Jasmine works out that Prince Ali is Aladdin (the boy from the market), why does she get angry at him? Shouldn't she be happy that he's actually alive, considering Jafar told her earlier on that Aladdin had been sentenced to death and killed?

Chosen answer: She's upset because she thinks Aladdin lied to her twice about everything - first by pretending he was Aladdin, then by lying in the guise of Ali.
