    19 Questions I Have About "Aladdin" Now That I'm An Adult

    Aladdin landing in a brothel went way over my head as a kid.

    1. This guy is definitely Genie in disguise, right? Why is he spending his freedom moonlighting as a travelling salesman?

    4. Wait, is this really a brothel?!

    5. Why is this douche prince's underwear in tact when Rajah clearly has a piece of it in his mouth?

    6. What happened to Jasmine's mother?

    And Aladdin's parents?

    7. Why do some characters have British accents, and some have American?

    8. Why aren't there any guards actually guarding the palace?

    It's so easy for Jasmine to get out? And for Prince Ali to get IN?!

    9. In fact, where are all the servants? Are Jasmine, Jafar, and the sultan literally the only people who live in the palace?

    Disney

    You never see anyone else?!

    10. How does Aladdin break open the melon with his bare hands/knee?

    Disney

    It's pretty impressive tbh.

    11. Why is the Cave of Wonders so damn picky about who gets to enter him and touch his forbidden treasure?

    Disney

    12. If they can’t touch anything but the lamp, how come nothing happens when they touch the magic carpet?

    Disney

    13. WHERE DOES ABU PULL THE LAMP FROM?!

    Disney

    14. Why doesn't Jafar hypnotise anyone other than the sultan?

    Disney

    Couldn't he have gotten literally everything he wanted just by hypnotising Jasmine and Aladdin?

    15. Why don't Jasmine and Jafar immediately recognise Aladdin as Ali? He doesn't even have his face covered?!

    Literally the same person.

    16. Does the magic of the carpet include enabling them to stay on/survive at those heights/not get wind-burn?

    Disney

    17. HOW DID ANYONE SURVIVE THIS?!

    Disney

    18. What did all the ordinary people think of the drastic changes at the palace?

    Disney

    Were their memories altered or did they realise they had a new, evil sultan for, like, five hours?

    19. Aladdin and Jasmine knew each other for what, two days? THAT IS SO FAST TO FALL IN LOVE.
