Aladdin: The Return of Jafar

Other mistake: Near the beginning, when Abis Mal is catapulted by Iago, he is launched in a lobbed way but, strangely, he flies straight to the thieves.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Aladdin is talking to Jasmine in front of the mirror the jewelled flower is in a vase with a real flower when the monkey under the table takes the real flower and the scene cuts back and shows the vase with both flowers. Seconds later the vase is completely empty.

More quotes from Aladdin: The Return of Jafar

Trivia: "The Return of Jafar" is notable for being Disney's first direct-to-video animated sequel, and it served as the start a long line of such films in the '90s and 2000s. Though oddly, it wasn't originally meant to be a feature film. The movie instead began as an hour-long pilot for the "Aladdin" television series and was meant to air as a TV-special. But "Aladdin" series producer and co-director Tad Stones liked the story and characters so much, he pushed to expand the story and release it on VHS as a proper "sequel" to the first movie. It took some convincing, but eventually Disney executives fell in love with the idea and agreed.

Wouldn't the same thing happen to Jafar if Jafar was freed?

Yes. The same thing would happen to Jafar if Abis Mal did free him but, as seen, Abis Mal never wished for Jafar to be free. Jafar was still a genie because he still had the bands attached to his wrist.
