    As much fun as the new Aladdin movie is, there are several notable things that were left out from the original. Stuff that was a little too provocative for 2019. And for that reason, the creators decided that these things had to be, for lack of a better phrase… “fixed”.

    censoring things that actual happened in movies/games that take place in certain times to fit current ideals is to me wrong. better way would be to have either the main or some side characters state how those things are wrong and try to convince to the protagonist or others why those things are wrong. that way you can remain faithful to what took place in the past and still remain PC. it is why movies like Blazing Saddles and Django Unchained get good quality points from me when I think about movies over other movies that take place at around the same time but don't use certain terminologies.

    I liked the movie, but the kids movies nowadays totally... clean. Everything is a taboo, so much so, that they almost don't have a conflict. This is anything but real. I get it protect the inocence of children, but they will not be children forever. One day they are gonna bump into the real world, and they are not gonna Know how to deal with it.

    Y'know, even without historical and political inaccuracy, it's still wierd that Jasmine would wear an outfit just like the "harem girls." Also, when he said they were replaced by school girls, I thought "...what kind of school girls, though [ like students who are girls, or brittney spears/weird porn typeschool girls?]

    Let me just get this out of the way: I loved the 2019 live action movie.
    ...BUT this effort to make everything perfect and politicaly correct, EVEN when the original wasn't necessarily incorrect (like the harem girls and Jafar being ugly) is really annoying.
    Also.. i always felt though original Jasmine was over 18 and she was one of my favorite Disney princess because of her strong personality

    It's pretty cool to have a hot villain but then it could be a trope or stereotype too like bc they're hot they think they'd get away with it

    I concidered it odd, that Jafar was so young(!). In the original he was a man in the mid fourties (at least) or the mid fifties, not the early thirties. He was the sultans counselor and trusted advisor for... lets be honest more than just 5 years. In the original he was the true ruler of Agrabah, while the sultan was playing with his toys. @MooWooMoo I thought it was great that the sultan was more of a real king, and that Jasmin learned her political skills from him.
    They could have gotten more into the "If only you where born a man, what a sultan you would have made" kind of thing. It is paraphrased from the movie "gladiator" where Cesar Marcus Aurelius says something like it to his daughter... That would have been a serious thing.
    I would have considered the syrian Actor Ghassan Massoud (Saladin from kingdom of heaven) a much better casting for the role of Jafar - but hey, that is just my opinion. ;) Marwan Kenzari did a good job non the less.

    I actually think the live action Jasmine looks more white than the cartoon Jasmine. Naomi Scott kinda just looks like a white girl with a tan. After all, she is partially white.

    Jasmine in the animated movie has an Arabian nose that is only present in Aladdin compared to the other animated Disney films. She's also brown and her eyes are more almond shaped and slanted, which isn't the standard shape for white people in animated Disney films. Even her face shape looks slightly different compared to her white Princess counterparts. However, many Arabian people in general look very similar to white people but with tans. Some more, others less. It's not like we're different species.

    Jafar is not a creepy old man. Back then, people were smarter. They understood that when a person reaches puberty, they are NOT a child anymore since they can have children of their own. So, keep your crazy politics to yourself. Besides, you are one to judge. You people think homosexuality, which couldn't be more unnatural, is normal. 👎

    I don't understand the whole 'pandering to kids' thing...to me, it's just when you're younger, you enjoy it but don't understand the entirety or the breadth of it all necessarily; then when you get older, you do genuinely understand the concept(s) fully or in more depth and may still enjoy it.

    Initially, after seeing the promotional videos and pictures, i thought Jaafar might've been hotter. But after seeing the movie, Aladdin is really way more handsome. The images did not do him justice

    Can't go referencing things like slavery, cutting off thieves' hands, or harem girls - not in a film set roughly around 1000 A.D. in the Middle East. That would just be insensitive.

    Jasmine new Song was trash and served no purpose and don't get me started with Jafar being the weakest Character in the Movie. Disney needs to stop trying being politically correct. So sick with oh this is Sexist or Offensive, tough fucking luck and stop being such a snowflake. Stick with the Original Material and create something brand new to spread your SjW bullshit, oh that's right, if Disney had to rely on spreading their shit message onto a new original create franchise it wouldn't even break even at the Box Office.

    Gotta point this out, but most of the changes they made were completely unnecessary. Insensitive as the previous movie was, it was culturally accurate to Arabia at the timeframe the story takes place. I understand changing the physical stereotypes and such, but female sultans, slaves, and cutting off hands for stealing were the norm for the time. Alot of it still is today

    I'm not a fan of the changes. They're made to make things more politically correct.. which, just spare me please.
    That said, I think the 2019 movie stands fine on it's own if you don't compare it to the original.

    The biggest thing that's missing in it, though, is the greatly reduced role of Iago. Gilbert Gottfried was brilliant in the role.

  • Heldermaior

    A lot of the things they changed had to do with the depiction of a 3rd century Arab culture. The line about slaves is interesting since owning slaves was a sign of wealth and very desirable for any royal. And not just in Arab culture.

  • Billy Two Cents
    Billy Two Cents Month ago

    A lot of these changes are terribly stupid and self serving.
    Lyrics to songs - You can't just rewrite history, facts and time periods because we are progressive now, are you going to rewrite Twelve years a slave to not have slave because they hurt people's feelings? Fuck off.
    Harem Girls? - Who really cares!? I mean, again, read above, for two, wouldn't it be more empowering to not slut shame by removing the scene? They seemed happy with their choice, until something in the animated movie implies otherwise.
    Nasty looking Characters? - Literally everyone in the movie that looks evil in a way is, it isn't racist, they are showing that evil is ugly, not Arabians... Fucking idiots.
    Jafar's look? - He looks stupid here, far better as an animated character.
    Jasmines Goals? - She did well enough in the original movie.
    Jafar + Jasmine? - Okay, one, Jafar didn't want Jasmine, he was using her to assume power, and for him to do what he did later, that's because he's evil, in no way does this scene make him a good guy or imply this is okay.
    Jamine as Sultan? - Way to go against lore and history to be progressive, this simply would not happen in the time period where they were in real life, it's ignorant. Not to mention Jasmine is likely already one of the most badass Disney Princesses in canon and you didn't need to make her more badass. She's already been shown in the animated series to be a capable ruler without it feeling forced, and to be in terms of combat, nearly on Aladdin's level.
    If all this crap is part of the movie? I'll stick with the superior classic...

    it's a cartoon, minor characters, and evil funny characters need to have crazy features because their facial expression is limited in cartoon, but in live action, actors can do this.

    Y'know, I love that they gave Jasmine a bigger role of becoming Sultan. That's pretty badly undercut though by repeatedly showing her as a naive 'book smart' princess with little to no idea of how the real world works.

    Let's see... I don't think the caricature ones count, this time they simply hired actual people, because, you know, LIVE ACTION! How would they even hire caricatures? The lyric changes, at least Arabian Nights, I think is wrong (and similarly the hand chopping, and the harem girls, who I always took as such, LOL!). It's accurate to the era, don't sugarcoat it, let the kids learn something (if they even notice the lyric or figure out the girls in the first place).
    As for Jaffar marrying Jasmine, I always took the cartoon the same, that this was only a power move, to cement him in as the recognized sultan, that he has zero interest in her other than power. And since her father was talking marriage, let's safely assume she was 18, huh? Even if that era might have been younger, just to relieve the creep factor (and yes, I know that's the reverse of what I said about the lyrics and such, LOL!). In any case, old enough to get married means reached age of consent, means nothing wrong with marrying an adult male of any age.

    The original is the best but I think the changes they made were suitable for the time that has passed. Women don't have to live in solitude and if they speak up, they do get listened to. Some of the lyric changes were good like taking slaves out of Prince Ali because like it was said, it's not very heroic to have slaves but I don't mind that they changed the lyric to "Heard your princess was hot where is she" because Jasmine shows her disgust for the modern term. The hand cutting scene could have been threatened and then Aladdin talks him out of it by giving him her bracelet. Also, the song Speechless is incredible and strong which is something the Disney princesses always lacked. Yes, women were treat as the weaker sex back then so it was kind of suitable for the original but you can't tell me every women would put up with that, there had to be a hint of strength even back then, it just wasn't recognised. I know some people will find that cheesy but women have had to fight for centuries to be listened too, so yeah, we're gonna shout about it and be proud of stronger female lead characters.

    I hated the overly pushed girl power agenda. The 90s version may have had uncomfortable topics, but if you go off a time frame in the past and the culture they were more accurate. I feel like America didnt do middle east proper justice. But at the end of the day, its just a movie right

  • CelebrityLyrics

    I think as time passes people get more dainty and get offended quicker. Removing scenes like the cutting hand off or old men marrying 16 year old is a step headed to wrong direction. Thousands of years ago those are deemed ok and we should stick to how it used to be not how we want to see them today.
