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.
Continuity mistake: During the dinner with the Sultan, the Genie cuts off his hand and it starts to tap dance. When it stops dancing you can see that the Sultan's eyebrows are gone. Then when the Sultan starts laughing his eyebrows pop back.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Genie is singing in the beginning of the movie, towards the end of the song when they are up in the palace, when Genie, Aladdin, and Jasmine first throw their arms out, you see that Jasmine's arms are behind Genie's. But when they turn around facing the outside, you see her arms in front of Genie's.
Trivia: There is a short scene after the credits.
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.
Trivia: The only "Aladdin" film out of the original trilogy to not feature Robin Williams as the voice of the Genie. Williams had a falling out with the producers of the first film, and refused to return to voice the character. He did, however, act as an adviser for the role during pre-production and helped the producers find his replacement, Dan Castellaneta. Eventually, Williams and the producers settled their differences, and he returned to voice the Genie in the third film.
