Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Aladdin's bad guy, Jafar, can be pretty scary with his sorcery and mind control -- as can the scenes in which Aladdin is chased by henchmen with giant swords and some mythological monsters. But Genie provides plenty of comic relief to the more dangerous moments Also expect a bit of mild name-calling and revealing outfits on Princess Jasmine and some curvy dancing ladies.
Very curvy ladies dance about in scanty outfits -- in fact all women are barely clad in this movie. Aladdin and Jasmine kiss and hold each other close on their first date.
Big henchmen pursue Aladdin with swords, threats to Aladdin's life, scary mythical monsters, perilous chase scenes, and near escapes. Jasmine is chained to a chair and forced to feed Jafar. One character is eaten by a mythical sand creature.
Some name calling: "stupid," "dumb," "idiot."
"Love conquers all" is the big message in this movie; also themes of friendship, loyalty, honesty, and fulfilling your promises. But there's some stereotyping, particularly of the Semitic culture.
Jasmine is a Disney Princess, whose brand reaches far and wide. Expect to see Princess branding on consumer merchandise, food products, etc. as well as in books, websites, and other media.

Genie says once "Mind if I smoke?" and also plays like he's in a bar.
