*** Pretty hard to buy, though, given Jafar (1) explicitly seeing "Ali"'s nigh-endless parade (which visibly includes what look like various kinds of soldiers) and (2) not knowing about Genie's presence yet. Chalk it up to a good old-fashioned VillainBall?

** Turning Aladdin into a prince was only intended (or so Genie thought) to get him through the law that only a prince could marry Jasmine. Having gotten to know Al by then, the Genie knew he was a good guy and tried persuading him to show Jasmine this side of him, instead of acting shallow and conceited in hopes of winning her over that way. Once he does manage to gain her favor (through showing his true self), the Genie never has any issue with Al living out his days as a prince - he's only upset because Al thinks he needs to keep the Genie in order to maintain the charade, which goes against an earlier deal that he would wish the Genie free in the end. After the climax, where Al's lies have all been revealed, the Genie offers to make him a prince again - once more, just to get past the law - even if it would deny him his freedom. The fact that Al chooses to free him instead is what seals the moral of the story.

* I saw this movie for the first time in years recently. I love it a lot but there's one thing that won't stop nagging me and are probably just me. For one, I don't understand Genie's intentions on helping Aladdin get with Jasmine. First, he says he can't make people directly fall in love. Then he grants him a wish that'll indirectly help her fall in love with him, fair enough. But when she does, Genie wants Al to stop living a lie and be himself when it doesn't work out. Then, when Aladdin successfully wins over Jasmine with the carpet ride, Carpet himself visually disapproves of Aladdin going on with the lies, yet helps him kiss her when they get back. And ultimately, both Genie and Carpet seem to be fine in the end.

end. In fact, why does it seem to constantly confusingly shift around between him needing to be himself, and that being someone who he's not is alright? The moral is confusing for me, but everything else is fine.

** She probably didn't want to spoil the moment, presumed (correctly) that Jafar lied to her for whatever reason, and decided to put away the investigation until later. If Jafar didn't press the matter by hypnotising Sultan, she would've probably confronted him about his lie.

*** Actually, his father was Kaseem, not Ali Baba (who, despite misconception, wasn't the leader of the Fourty Thieves), though in the stories Kaseem is the name of Ali Baba's brother (who is killed by the thieves)
*** No, Ali Baba wasn't the "King of thieves", in the story "Ali Baba and the Forty Theves", all of them were actually ''against'' him. (Or at least the version I read...which sort of had Ali Baba's maid-daughter kill all but one of them with Olive oil)

** The entire thing is a test of character. It's like the classic fairytales; if you shut up and listen to the wise old hag, and do whatever she says, no matter how crazy, you'll get a reward. If you don't, you end turned into an animal or get killed in some unpleasant manner. Those who are worthy enough to enter the cave have to also prove they're smart enough to listen to warnings, and won't be tempted by treasure. If they listen, they'll get a creature with the power to create all the treasure they've ever wanted. Maybe it's to prove they won't abuse the power of the lamp? Listening and not being tempted are two very good qualities when you're in charge of a practically-omnipitent being.

*** The dancing girls in the harem and Aladdin's parade wear outfits similar to Jasmine's, though mostly in red or other colours besides blue, so I'm guessing in the faux-Arabia universe they created it was just fine for girls to dress like that. The only women we see who aren't dressed like that are Jasmine when she's in disguise, and much older, more matronly women.

*** As mentioned above, it's possible that the rules are that powerful that they change reality to stop themselves from being broken. Therefore, every plan to get around the rules would be doomed to fail. (i.e the moon would miss or Jafar spontaniously deciding to stop Aladdin from going over the waterfall)

** If you're talking about the last scene when he's got her dressed in her [[Main/GoGoEnslavement flattering red outfit]], didn't Aladdin smash the thing several scenes ago? Since he's an all powerful sorceror, I guess the better question would be why didn't he just conjure up a new hypnotizing wand? Or simply zap her? Jafar was on a psycho mad-with-power high at this point, so it's not likely he'd be thinking things through too clearly.

** All mootpoints considering by that time Jafar was the most powerful sorcerer in the world, and had spells of every type of power level and for every occasion (we saw him conjure objects out of nothing and transport a tower across the world; guy was already all-powerful). I assumed that not only could he cast the same mind-control spells, but they would be more diversifed and greatly enhanced. He could indeed have simply cast a permanent love spell on Jasmin (or in the very least a permanent ''lust'' spell) powerful enough to overcome even her strong-will, and he wouldn't have had to waste a wish.
*** Perhaps, until that moment, he had just contented himself with having her chained, thinking that soon she would surrender, as he believed that he had managed to kill Aladdin. However, one or two days after, which is when Aladdin manages to get back, when he forces Jasmine to take the apple and raise it so that he can eat it without moving much, he realises that, even as he holds the chain, she will always be the same rebellious girl, the one who is in love with Aladdin. Thus, he decides to take the last shred of her will and make her fall completely in love with him, and how to do it better than to use his last wish to force the Genie to do this? Besides, it is another way to hummiliate Genie, because he knows he likes Aladdin and Jasmine, and them together, and forcing Jasmine to fall in love with Jafar would be another way to twist the knife.

** It's a control thing. He could hypnotise Jasmine into being his servant but he would know she was only under a spell and that her true feelings for Aladdin would be underneath. But for wishing her to fall in love with him, if Genie had been able to do so then effectively reality would have been altered to make Jasmine love him. Pretty much the difference between creating an illusion of gold and actually owning some.

** Jasmine says later that she's a fast learner. She quickly realised that Aladdin was coming up with something to get her out of trouble and knew that if she played along, she'd avoid getting her hand cut off for stealing.
* Couldn't Jasmine have paid for the apple with one of her earrings? A piece of solid gold jewellery's got to be worth a few bits of fruit...

*** Why would he assume a better solution was possible? Jasmine had said she didn't have any money, so the merchant probably assumed she wouldn't have had anything valuable on her. Jasmine's choice of disguise was not doing her any favours, either.

** Magic (along with talking parrots) seems to be generally accepted as existing in this world even if it's not available to everyone. The Sultan takes an interest in Aladdin's carpet but doesn't seem surprised by it, suggesting that there are magical artifacts and powers available to a select few (like Jafar) but not most people. As for why Jafar didn't recognise it, he never got a good look at it when he saw Aladdin trying to escape from the cave. The carpet is knocked from under him by a boulder as he's nearing the mouth of the cave and Jafar leans over the edge to see him dangling from some rocks.

** It supposedly took a lengthy trip through the desert in order for "Prince Ali" to reach Agrabah - if anyone was sent there to seek him out, Jafar, as the Sultan's royal vazier, could just as easily tell them all that Ali never arrived, leading them to assume that he got lost in the desert, was robbed, perished in a sandstorm, died of thirst, or what have you. The servants who came with him (if they were even locatable by Jafar thanks to being constructs of Genie's magic, could just as easily be hypnotized into believing the same thing.

** Remember when Genie [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_Bdn8mtgBA#t=3m46s returns and says]] that his powers are now "semi-phenominal, nearly-cosmic"? That's the case here. Jafar, on the other hand, has full phenominal cosmic powers. The "freed genies have less power than enslaved ones" supposition is 100% supported by the dialogue, and explains why Genie had a lot of moments of uselessness on the animated series (since it's difficult to have nail-biting adventures when you have a living DeusExMachina as one of your best friends).

* Near the end of ''Return of Jafar'' Abysmal refuses to free Jafar so he could instead spend his third wish on tresure. Jafar ends up conjuring some, which Abysmal pretty astutely suspects to be illusional, and as villains quarrel heroes get a shot at Jafar's lamp. What buggers me is that how in the world could Abysmal neglect the fact that he currently resided in THE SULTAN'S PALACE!!! Which just happend to house THE (appropriately) SULTAN'S TREASURY!!! Come on, that must be like a pipe dream of every thief in the world. And he had it right beneath his feet and apparently never even bothered to peep inside. Well, even he did chose that moment to grip the IdiotBall even tighter than usual, how come Jafar (who used to LIVE in the palace) didn't think of that opportunity?

*** But as a Genie he then had cosmic powers! Control ower matter and energy and the very fibre of existence! Why would he still be preoccupied with such puny down-to-earth affair as gold? Not to say that he only needed to convince Abys-Mal to free him and then he could just take it all away. Perhaps he wanted to astound Abysmal with the sight of treasures appearing out of thin air?

** Moreover, he spares Alladin's life in the waterfall, because there are "things much worse then mere death". Indeed, there are, but Jafar's idea of those seems rather confusing and surpisingly not evil. So, Alladin gets falsly accused of murder by Razoul who hated him anyway. Big deal. Then he gets sentenced to death by "Jasmine" which ''is'' a big deal or would be if Jafar didn't blow his cover right before the oncoming execution. And...that's it? Jafar wouldn't torture his friends in front of him, he wouldn't have Aladdin killed in a slow and painful manner, he wouldn't even stay and witness the destruction of his nemesis in person and gloat? Why is he suddenly all Dr. Evil?

Why the hell did Jago go for a precise drop, when he could just topple the lamp ''into'' lava right away, exactly like he did later?! Yes, I know, the scene with a near-dead Jago kicking the lamp was intence, allright, but what was the point? Oh, and on the Jafar's part, I know he was an all-powerful and deranged Genie and all, but seriously, leaving his precious lamp lying on a tiny islet in the middle of a lava lake? WTF?!

** Probably a case of "So close yet so far." Jaffar was likely overconfident at that point and wanted the lamp dangling right in front of the heroes where they just barely can't get to it. Also, the above reply.

** Why they didn't keep the lamp in the first place is because the Cave of Wonders was thought to be secure. Controlling the lamp of a genie who doesn't like you is probably tantamount to suicide. The lamp limits a genie but they don't seem to be truly trapped inside them nor does it seem like you can force a genie into the lamp against their will. If an unconscious Aladdin can ''wish'' to be saved from drowning and Abis Mal can be wished to the bottom of the ocean (nothing suggests that drowning under those conditions was impossible per the rules) the last thing anybody would want would be a malicious genie hovering about for something that could be interpreted as a fatal or extremely inconvienent wish.

** Its a huge Main/ContinuitySnarl to facilitate the crossover. The Aladdin film establishes the time period as being medieval nwith the presence of Islam but the series backdates to the pre-roman period to be contemporary with Hercules.

** You guys, '''he was an evil sorceror'''. This more than just disqualifies him as an observant Muslim -- occultists tend to develop their own weird theologies if they're religious at all. Even if everyone else in the movies is Muslim, it's possible that he ''did'' believe in the Greek underworld, or that he just got shunted into it due to the nature of his occult dealings.

** The carpet probably gave them a lift up the wall to the room where the lamp was. In fact, that might have even been the intention of it - only a diamond in the rough can enter the cave, so the only way to get to the lamp is by proving yourself pure-hearted enough to gain the carpet's trust, instead of being distracted by all of the other treasures in the room. (Which might also explain why "Touch nothing but the lamp" doesn't extend to cover Carpet, since he's there to help one get to the lamp, not distract from it like everything else.)
