    10 Really Dark Things About The Original Aladdin The Remake "Fixes"
    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”.
    These are 10 Really Dark Things About The Original Aladdin The Remake Covers Up.

    “Too provocative for 2019”...sigh if it was fine in the 90s, it should be fine now. Some people have just become way too sensitive and get offended by everything

    So, people are probably going to hate me after this, but, I realized that most kids movies now are all, GIRL POWER!!! And I get it, but, shouldn’t they’re be an equal amount of girl AND boy power? Also, FYI, I’m a girl, not a boy. Anyway, I feel like we’re focusing on girls too much now. It used to be boys are better. Now, girls are about to take that place, if you get what I mean. Why can’t people just say, “we have equal value, let’s move on with our lives now.” But females, in general, are pushing it further and are STILL trying to prove their worth for pretty much no reason at all! It was already proved. End of story. Sorry if this sounded offensive in anyway, being offensive was not my intention. I just wanted to make people aware. Thanks if you read this far, I guess. Have a great rest of your life!

    Jafar was creepy in the original? No. He's was a great villain, because he wasn't a creep to begin with.
    In the original, Iago and Jafar planned to marry Jasmine and make a accidental incident to kill her and he'll remain in power as Sultan. Even after he became Sultan he still didn't love Jasmine.
    Jafar just wanted her to submit to his rule as Sultan, but she continued to rebel. He was going to beat make her to submit to him. He WAS going to do that, but came up with a more darker plan to make her obey. That is to have the Genie grant Jafar's wish to have Jasmine fall in love with him so she no longer rebel against him.
    He doesn't care if she falls in loves him; he just wants her to submit to his rule as Sultan. That's what makes him a great villain. He has no love in him that he'll use love as a tool to get what he wants!

      Also does anyone misses the old Cave of Wonders?
      How it emerged from the sands after Jafar and his hired thief trying keep up with the magical beetle to follow its trail to find the Cave of Wonders? How the weather changed dramatically to give off an intimidating and magical feeling? (Inhale) Hearing Jafar saying how he kept searching the Cave of Wonders that seemed to be just a myth, but found it was real along and left us in questions about the Cave of Wonders existence? (Inhale) Seeing how the head moved and looked at you when it didn't really have eyes, but still felt it staring at you? (Inhale) Still also see and hear the head is still moving and breathing? Right when the thief felt safe taking a step inside the head you immediately was scared by the roar of the Tiger; seeing its jaws opened wide and chomped down before the thief can escape dragging itself and thief with the treasures of the Cave of Wonders? (………………..Inhale...…………….) Later seeing how Jafar tricks Aladdin to get the Lamp and tries to kill him to make sure there's no loose ends?

      I really miss that.....
      How does one find the New Cave of Wonders?
      Just look for a mountain in the middle of nowhere and see if there's a cave on the side of the mountain there with a shape of tiger's head...….yup...….

    They should have just kept it original. It is what made us who we are today, why sugarcoat things? The original was far greater than the makeover. Although I really enjoyed the movie!

    I quote Peter Griffin "OMG, Who the hell cares?" if someone gets "offended". It's a cartoon for crying out loud. And kids need to learn the penalty for stealing (That was a little joke). Stop making the world out to be a nice place! The real world is barbaric!

    the change in lyrics in both arabian nights and prince ali were needed; needed so nobody would be offended, therefore, disney gets more revenue in the box office.

  • Victoria Falzo
    Victoria Falzo 3 days ago

    Jasmine was in a "harem outfit" the entire original movie
    Also, it makes more sense for Jafar's first goal to be marrying Jasmine because it's an easy way to get what he wants (power through ruling) and make it less "evil" to the people (if he's the princess' new husband, then obviously he's the new sultan. If he just TAKES the power, then they're less likely to go with it)
    And a super old dude marrying a 15 year old is (I think) still common in Middle Eastern cultures, and it was even more common back in the day this movie would have taken place. AND it's not the creepiest thing in Disney (Think Frollo in Hunchback)

    I don't get Jasmine's character change. Not only is it inaccurate for the time and place, but the film is supposed to be about "Aladdin". Pretty much every other Disney movie focuses, often exclusively, on the female characters. Is it so difficult for them to have one film where the focus is on a male character?

    Look I think it's just extremely difficult to please everyone. Of course the cartoon version was political more accurate to that time and still is, but disney isn't something only for kids or only for adults. It's for both and some here seem to forget that. I personally think awareness is important but if I had a young daughter I wouldn't want her to be confronted with those issues at such a young age. Again, that's an opinion but I think Disney just considered that. I also think it was less risky to cover things up and get criticism for it than make it just like the original and get criticism for being "irresponsible". I hope you understood what I mean

    In short, Disney is just playing safe because even if they try to explain some scenes that raise eyebrows from sensitive viewers, others will still not believe it and say what they want to say.

    I don't think that the original alladin movie is being racist nor sexist in any way. They are portraying or showing such actions because it has the purpose to make the viewers see the discrimination and the violence people do and don't even realize it.

    So basically this video is about how Disney used to be ignorant and offensive (facts all wrong, proving they did not bother to do a brief research regarding the middle east culture ) to a more stupid and racist version of themselves...Oh boy and they think they are doing good and improving...HOW SAD...

    I think all the changes were perfectly appropriate. Some of them were especially needed. Speaking as a girl who’s part Middle Eastern, I’m very happy that they were able to portray the people much more positively than the original had. Jasmine was also given a lot more in terms of power and character, and it made me feel better.
    Also, the “harem girls” were pretty inaccurate in the original. A harem is actually another name for the sultan’s/man’s family. This includes the servants, concubines and children. And no, they didn’t dress scantily clad or anything. They were just regular wives.

    This whole video was a headache because they're so worried about offending people its ridiculous. Jasmine and aladdin were NOT drawn to look white!

  • High Apple Pie In The Sky

    They DO cut off peoples hands in the middle east! Its not negative portrayl, its telling the truth. And i am so sick of hearing about how they dont want to offend anybody! The animated version was fucking accurate! Period

    Funny thing, I didnt think Jafar in the cartoon version was ugly. So choosing if the bad guy should be ugly or not is up to the story. I usually never think the bad guy is ugly until the person who presents the story does.

  • Salina Libohovana

    The animated movie showed how the Middle East used to be. My mom named me after jasmine because she wanted me to be Curios about the world and explore it. The genie is actually in Arabic mythology but Islam tried to make it as something bad. Jasmine and Aladdin looked persian while the rest looked Arabic. So i don’t think they look white I just think they looked more persian then Arabic. To be honest the animated version was better.

    The role and character development was greatly changed for Jasmine that I am satisfied with. Will Smith did a FANTASTIC job as Genie. Sure Jafar wasn't creepy or as evil as the original Jafar was, but he was indeed much more toned down on what actually needed to be targeted for his character. Now, I completely agree that the hand getting chopped off definitely needed to be removed from the new film as well as part of the lyrics in, "Prince Ali" when Aladdin walks through Agrabah as a prince. I was super happy with how Jasmine was WAY more involved in the new film also having a best friend interaction unlike the original film. Now, I was originally a bit upset about curtain parts in the new film, but after watching this it just made much more sense of why they changed a lot of things for this new film. I didn't realize a few things that were actually offensive in the original film and I am actually leaning to like the new film because of this information. I still prefer the old Jafar, but the new Jafar a great adjustment also I LOVE how they didn't do the outfits in the original film because I know that the people in Arabic and other cities would NEVER where those types of fashion statements. I was also pleased that the new film didn't have the "subduction" scene like the original film did because that would have changed the perspective completely in a live action movie unlike the animated film. However, I kind of wished they added, "Prince Ali (reprise)" in the new film when Jafar was revealing to Jasmine who Prince Ali really was. Now, during this scene, in the original film, carpet got turned into a pile of yarn, Rajah got turned into a kitten, Abu got turned into a toy monkey, Jasmine's father was a puppet that Iogo forced to eat crackers, and Jafar turned into a giant cobra before he wished to become the most powerful genie. In the new film none of that happened which I completely understand why they cut all of this out. For one thing, it would be terrifying for children to see an enormous cobra on the screen in a live action movie plus that would rely too much on computer graphics. Plus, Iogo never had a cracker in this new film so there was no need to put that part in. Also, for me carpet being ripped was more emotional for me than carpet being a pile of yarn, as well as he never attempted to grab the lamp when it had the chance. Instead, it basically asked Genie to be transported to where Aladdin was. Now, as for Abu to be turned into a toy monkey, I think was necessary to be cut out because Abu didn't do anything not even try to grab the lamp unlike the original movie. So, there was no point in adding that in the new film. As for Rajah, he didn't try to attack Jafar unlike he did when the guards tried to take Jasmine away. So, if Rajah DID attack Jafar then MAYBE they could have added that part in, but seeing how that didn't happen it was okay that they left those out. When I heard Jasmine sing, "Speechless" I thought that song was incredibly empowering and such a strong song that I loved how there was SO much meaning behind those lyrics. That song was my absolute number two favorite, my first favorite will always be, "A Whole New World".

    Some remakes are amazing while others aren’t s that good! The reason why some remakes are good is because they keep 80% of the original movie in the remake. Yes changes are good but the movie has point and shows how times we’re back then. Idk I didn’t watch Aladdin. Not my fav Disney movie so who cares!

  • TardisCoreST
    TardisCoreST 6 days ago

    I like how they covered up many things that got neglected in the original (for example, why Jasmine was locked up in the castle). But I actually really didn't like that whole "become the Sultan" thing. In the original, Jasmine didn't lack goals. Her goal was to get the right to build her own life, her own way, to be free of stupid restrictions that dictate her whole life. Not only the right to marry whomever she wants, just the right do decide everything by herself, including not marrying at all. And that was beautiful and meaningful. At least for me. Not many kids can relate to the new movie Jasmine as easily.
    Also, I never thought original Jafar was ugly. For me, he was scary, dangerous, but somehow attractive, in his own way. And personally, I LOVED the way he looked, that tall, thin figure that towers over every other character, especially Aladdin himself, which made their struggle even more scary and impossible. He always looked stronger than Al, smarter, and more dangerous, with or without Ginny or magical powers. The movie Jafar... well, he just doesn't seem to play right. I like that they made him a thief, even better thief than Al. But that's probably it.
    But the movie is good nonetheless.

    New Jafar is barely a villain, he seemed like such an underhanded coward and weak villain.
    They miss the point that in order to be evil.... You need to be evil =_=.
    Also nothing was epic in the movie, the cave was just a single room, no magic battle against an evil genie, oh and everything became hip hop.

  • LoveYourEnemyMat544

    I thought Jasmine's goal in the original movie was to marry for love and be free-- no more palace walls or politics, just being able to explore the world without the burden of an arranged marriage and not being forcefully isolated from the outside world because she is a princess.

    So pretty much, Disney realized people are overly sensitive and changed shit to make them happy? Without even watch, I guarantee the older one is better and glad I didnt waste my money to watch this in theaters. I prefer kid movies that can be a little adult so I can enjoy them when I'm older too, or like now, so I'm not going crazy with how stupid they are. Idk maybe it's just me.

      ​@Helena Overton That's wrong and stupid. Aladdin is not a Disney original story nor a modern-day story. It's a misrepresentation of what it was like in the past. If they want gender equality so badly why don't they change the time setting and the names of the characters and make it a new story instead?

  • Michelle Belle

    I know it’s Disney, but I was extremely disappointed that they cut out the scene of Jasmine enslaved as a prisoner because she does use her power to manipulate him and act as if she’s fallen under his trance. It creates conflict between Aladdin and Jasmine, plus her red outfit was iconic. I liked the metaphor suggesting the loss of her blue innocence when being overtaken by Jafar’s ego and control, and his lust for power.

    I was so surprised by this movie because so far I didn't like any of the live action versions of the Disney classics but Aladdin was actually good. Especially a friend like me was a nice surprise because I was 110% sure it would be awful but they managed to make it actually great! But what I really missed was first: the Prince Ali Reprise sung by Jafar (which is my favorite scene from the original movie), second: the character of Iago who really barely had any appearance in the live action movie and only repeated stuff, his sassy attitude vanished completely, third: all in all the humor. I see why it's a little more serious, but what I always loved so much about Aladdin was it's humor and it's references to the pop culture. In the beginning when Genie appears first there is some trying to bring at least a little bit of that humor into it but as the movie progresses it's gone completely and I really missed it... (What else I missed was Jasmine's red outfit and her acting but it's okay because it fits better in this version which really is less creepy and... Probably better this way Oo xD)

    • Audray LiAr
      Audray LiAr 7 days ago

      Oh and something else I missed was Jafar turning into a snake, the hourglass Jasmine was trapped in and the sultan's personality, but again, I see the reasons why those things didn't appear 🤷
