Later when he confronts his father Cassim and being tested by him to face Sa'Luk, Aladdin wears black undergarments with a matching sleeveless top with a red obi around his waist and a medium blue long sleeved shirt. He also adorned with a blue cloak that can cover his head and face and a gold emblem at the left side. This outfit is also his father's primary outfit.

His main outfit throughout the movie and his crossover appearance in Hercules: The Animated Series, Aladdin wears a blue-green sleeveless garb with gold trim, a white long sleeve undershirt with dark brown folded sleeves, light blue pants with a red sash and dark brown shoes with swirled tips. When he meets his father Cassim for the first time, his main outfit is covered with a cream cloak and a gray turban on his head.

He later rips the right long sleeve into the shorter sleeve from his main outfit to cover the Hand of Midas.


  • Expert Tactician: Aladdin has demonstrated amazing cleverness, as he has feats of being able to outsmart enemies multiple times. During the first film, he is proven to be capable of evading capture from the guards despite being greatly outnumbered and overpowered.
  • Excellent Speed: Aladdin is very fast, having spent years outrunning the officers of Agrabah during his theft of food.
  • Excellent Agility: Aladdin is very agile, showing similar acrobatics and grace to his monkey Abu.
  • Excellent Reflexes: Aladdin possesses good reflexes, able to dodge the repeated strikes from Jafar in his massive snake form.
  • Skilled Swordsman: Aladdin has demonstrated some swordsmanship abilities, despite it not being known whether he had any training. His primary weapon in the video games and the films is the scimitar which was the main weapon of Razoul's royal guards. Aladdin demonstrates using a weapon when he fought Jafar in his king cobra form and later in the third film where he was tested by his father.
  • Skilled Hand-To-Hand Combatant: While normally prevailing through wit or teaming with his allies, Aladdin is a capable fighter. Against Sa'Luk, the most skilled fighter of the Forty Thieves and physically much stronger than him, Aladdin proved able to fend off the foe's assault rather effectively while landing his own number of blows and even narrowly defeated him.
  • Animal Communication: Aladdin is an animal whisperer, as he was able to understand Abu, his pet monkey, when to a normal person, he simply speaks gibberish.
  • Expert Thief: Aladdin became a skilled thief, gaining a lot of experience since the age of 7.
  • Excellent Strength: Though not his most noteworthy trait, Aladdin does have a certain degree of strength as he was strong enough to dig Carpet out from being stuck under a broken palace tower in a snowy wasteland in the original movie. With a two-fisted hit, he was also able to knock out Sa'Luk, who was at least twice his size.



Aladdin looks out into the city, and the palace; dreaming of a better life.

In the deserts outside of Agrabah, Jafar—the Sultan's royal vizier—seeks access to the mysterious Cave of Wonders to accomplish a nefarious scheme. He sends a shady thief to carry out this bidding, but the cave's guardian warns them that only the "diamond in the rough" may enter the cave. Jafar sends his lackey within, nevertheless, and the thief is buried alive for his attempts. With no other choice, Jafar is forced to utilize his resources to uncover the individual capable of entering the cave: Aladdin.

When Aladdin first appears, he has stolen a loaf of bread but after outwitting and escaping the royal guards with the help from Abu, the two generously hand their earned food to two young orphans. Later, Aladdin spots other citizens watching a snooty prince heading for the castle as a suitor for the beautiful Princess Jasmine and defends the orphans as they are nearly whipped for running in front of his horse. Aladdin is kicked into the mud and insulted by the prince, whom he insults back as well. Discouraged, Aladdin and Abu head for home as night falls. All the same, Aladdin keeps the faith that he will someday be rich and live in a palace.

Aladdin and Jasmine during their first evening together.

The next morning Aladdin and Abu are having breakfast when he spots a beautiful girl whom he is instantly smitten with. The girl has just given an apple to a young boy and the peddler spots this and threatens to chop her arm off if she refuses to pay. Aladdin rescues the girl claiming that she is his sister and "a little crazy". She plays along and the two escape right on time. As Aladdin leads the girl to his home, they both start to display feelings for each other. Once they reach Aladdin's home, he and the girl become more comfortable with each over, even revealing their true desires in life. When Aladdin tries asking the girl where she's from, she reveals that she ran away because her father is forcing her to get married, surprising Aladdin. He then tries to cheer her up, which works so well that the two nearly kiss. Unfortunately, the guards burst in to arrest Aladdin; he and the girl attempt to escape, but Aladdin runs into the lead guard, Captain Razoul, who captures him. The girl reveals herself to be Princess Jasmine and demands Aladdin's freedom. Razoul apologizes and explains he is doing his job under the orders of Jafar, not Jasmine's father, the Sultan of Agrabah, so Jasmine will have to speak to him to gain Aladdin's release, before taking Aladdin away while Jasmine returns to the palace to furiously confront Jafar on the matter.

Aladdin finds the lamp.

In the dungeon, Aladdin laments how foolish he feels for revealing so much about himself to a princess. Abu arrives and frees Aladdin of his chains, though he also berates Aladdin for letting his guard down for Jasmine, but, Aladdin doesn't care since the law says that she has to be married to a prince. Suddenly, the two meet an old beggar (who is actually Jafar in disguise) that informs Aladdin of the Cave of Wonders, claiming they will be greatly rewarded for retrieving the legendary magic lamp for him. Though hesitant, Aladdin agrees, hoping the riches will impress Jasmine. At the cave's entrance, Aladdin and Abu are warned by the guardian to not to touch anything but the lamp. Inside the cave, the two meet a magic flying carpet who leads them to the lamp. Just as Aladdin retrieves the lamp, Abu seizes one of the forbidden treasures, causing the cave to shake violently since Abu had violated the guardian's warning, infuriating it. Aladdin and Abu hop on the Magic Carpet and try to make their escape, but Carpet is pinned by a falling boulder, leaving Aladdin to dangle from a ledge in front of the exit. He tries to escape but needs help from the beggar, who demands the lamp first. After handing the lamp to him, the beggar nearly kills Aladdin, only to be stopped when Abu bites him, causing him to drop Aladdin. The cave then dissolves, trapping Abu, Aladdin, and Carpet inside.

Aladdin's royal alter-ego: Prince Ali.

Inside, Abu reveals he has stolen the lamp back. Aladdin rubs the lamp and unleashes an all-powerful Genie, who introduces himself as a friend unlike any other. Genie tells Aladdin that he can grant three wishes, with the exceptions of killing, making love, and bringing back the dead. Aladdin tricks the Genie into having them escape the cave without using up one of his three wishes. They rest at an oasis and Aladdin takes the time to think of what to wish for. He asks the Genie what he wishes for, to which the Genie tells Aladdin his dreams of freedom. Aladdin promises to use his third wish to free the Genie. For his first wish, he wishes to become a prince to win the heart of Jasmine, whom he has met earlier. As part of the wish, the Genie creates an entourage of servants, swordsmen, dancers, etc. and transforms Abu into an elephant. All the while, Aladdin was about to change from a once poor street rat into a cultured, sophisticated man about town. After a flashy parade in the streets of Agrabah approaching the palace while riding Abu, Aladdin meets the Sultan and Jafar. During a discussion of winning her heart, Jasmine overhears their plot and instantly berates the three for treating her like a prize.

Aladdin and Jasmine on the magic carpet ride.

That night, a crestfallen Aladdin contemplates on how to earn Jasmine's love, ignoring Genie's advice, to tell the truth, out of insecurity. Aladdin flies up to the balcony as Ali and calls to Jasmine. She initially refuses to see Ali but finds him familiar upon closer inspection. Ali debunks the suspicion and tries to change the subject by complimenting the princess, only to find himself insulting her instead. Realizing he's been treating Jasmine as a prize, Aladdin apologizes and takes his leave on Carpet, though the appearance of the sentient rug captures Jasmine's attention and curiosity. Ali introduces Jasmine to his companion and humbly offers her a ride as a chance to get out of the palace and see the world. Starting to see past his facade and realizing he may be the boy she met in the marketplace, Jasmine accepts, and the two embark on a magic carpet ride around the world. They eventually stop to rest and watch fireworks in China, and in during which, Jasmine exposes Aladdin as the boy from the market, having noticed the same mannerisms between Aladdin and Prince Ali. Aladdin desperately lies by claiming that he sometimes dresses as a commoner to escape the pressures of palace life, though he truly is a prince. Relating to the notion, Jasmine forgives Ali and their night continues.

Aladdin and Jasmine's first kiss.

After Aladdin escorts Jasmine back to the palace, they share their first kiss, proclaiming their love. An exuberant Aladdin celebrates as he and Carpet return to the palace gardens, where he is ambushed and kidnapped by Jafar and the guards. He is shackled to a ball and chain by the legs and thrown from a cliff into the sea, where he is left to drown. As he passes out, Aladdin's hand rubs the lamp, releasing the Genie, who uses Aladdin's second wish to free him from his binds and carry him to the surface. Touched by Genie's act, the two warmly embrace before returning to the palace to reveal Jafar's evil ways to Jasmine and the Sultan. The latter doesn't seem to believe Aladdin's accusations, but the street rat notices peculiar lighting from Jafar's snake staff and destroys it. As it turns out, Jafar had been using the staff to control the Sultan, confirming his treachery and having him warranted for arrest, though he escapes. As Aladdin and Jasmine comfort one another, the Sultan realizes the two have fallen in love, with Jasmine confirming that she has chosen Ali as her suitor. The Sultan declares that the two will be wed at once, and appoints Ali as the heir to his throne. Though initially excited, Aladdin quickly finds himself struck with extreme guilt, feeling unworthy of such an honor, as well as Jasmine's love, due to his lies.

Aladdin realizes the error of his ways.

The next day, Aladdin is notably downhearted. The Genie happily appears from the lamp and congratulates Aladdin on winning the heart of the princess, expecting Aladdin to wish for his freedom. Aladdin explains that the Sultan wishes to dub him as the heir to the throne, though he feels unworthy of such an honor due to the fact that he's been living a lie. He also expresses ill confidence in being able to maintain the facade without Genie's assistance, ultimately confessing that he won't be able to wish the latter free. Genie, feeling betrayed, retires to his lamp in a huff. Aladdin angrily berates Genie's lack of support, but soon comes to his senses and realizes how selfish he's been acting after unintentionally taking his anger at Genie out on Abu and Carpet, who had been watching the argument. After a moment of thought, he decides to tell Jasmine the truth but is lured away from Genie's lamp by Iago, imitating Jasmine's voice. During his absence, Iago steals the lamp.

Aladdin manages to find Jasmine near the main gate and tries to reveal the truth, but is interrupted and thrown in front of a crowd of joyous subjects who have gathered to celebrate his engagement to Jasmine. Just then, Agrabah comes under attack due to Jafar becoming the Genie's new master. When the Genie uproots the palace, Aladdin signals to the Carpet so that he can fly over to the Genie to try to stop him, but to no avail, as Genie apologizes to Aladdin, saying he serves a new master now. When Jafar confronts Jasmine, Aladdin rushes to her defense, but Jafar exposes Aladdin's true identity as a street rat, undoing Genie's spell and turning Aladdin's prince disguise back into his street clothes. Aladdin is then separated from Jasmine by Jafar, who traps him, Abu (who has been transformed back into a monkey by Jafar), and the Carpet into a tower that Jafar blasts to the ends of the earth. There, Aladdin rescues Abu and the Carpet, and they fly back to Agrabah.

Aladdin infiltrates the palace, where he is reunited with Genie. Though Genie warns Aladdin that he is unable to help, Aladdin closes in on the lamp nevertheless. Jasmine, meanwhile, distracts Jafar to buy Aladdin time, though the evil sorcerer catches onto the scheme soon enough when he spots Aladdin via the reflection in Jasmine's crown. Jasmine is imprisoned in an hourglass that is rapidly filling with sand, while Abu and Carpet are also eliminated. Aladdin struggles to grab hold of the lamp, but it is ultimately retrieved by Jafar, who transforms into a giant cobra to battle him. As Jafar lunges to kill, Aladdin tries to save Jasmine but is eventually trapped within Jafar's coils. As Jafar mocks Aladdin's lack of power without the Genie, an idea comes to mind; Aladdin declares that Jafar isn't as powerful as he wants to believe, as it is Genie who is truly the most powerful being in the universe, as he gave Jafar his power in the first place, and can take it away as well. Mad for more power, Jafar uses his final wish to become a genie himself, though Aladdin reveals this to be a horrible decision, as the sorcerer is now forced to spend all eternity within a lamp prison with "itty-bitty living space". With Jafar trapped, Aladdin hands the lamp over to Genie, who flings it to the Cave of Wonders for a minimum of 10,000 years of imprisonment.

Happy endings in Agrabah.

Aladdin apologizes to Jasmine for lying about being a prince, though she quickly forgives him out of understanding. Aladdin then prepares to bid farewell, even though Jasmine declares that she loves him. The Genie, now willing to sacrifice his freedom, offers to make Aladdin a prince again; Aladdin instead declares that he must stop pretending to be something other than himself and wishes for the Genie's freedom, much to the latter's shock. Genie warmly thanks Aladdin for his compassion, stating that the latter will always be a prince in his eyes, due to his selfless heart. The Sultan, having also witnessed Aladdin's bravery, agrees with Genie, and subsequently decrees that Jasmine may marry whomever she deems worthy. The overjoyed princess ecstatically chooses Aladdin, and their engagement is set. With their fates tied, Aladdin, with Jasmine in tow, waves goodbye to the Genie as he takes advantage of his newfound freedom by journeying to see the world.

Aladdin and Jasmine are last seen during a celebration honoring their engagement, singing a reprise of "A Whole New World" as they ride off into the night upon the Magic Carpet—Genie gleefully watching over them.

The Return of Jafar[]

Aladdin in The Return of Jafar.

Aladdin is now engaged to Jasmine and spends most of his time taking back jewels and riches from sinister thieves and giving them to the unfortunate inhabitants of Agrabah, despite Abu's objections. One is a gift for Jasmine and their love is stronger than ever.

During a stroll in the city, Aladdin and Abu encounter Iago, Jafar's parrot who tortured the Sultan during Jafar's reign. He lies to Aladdin, claiming he was under a spell. Aladdin ignores these claims and chases Iago, right before he was attacked by Abis Mal the thief for his earlier theft of Abis Mal's loot. Iago accidentally saves Aladdin by dropping barrels on the villains. Aladdin now feels like he owes Iago for saving his life, so as a reward, Aladdin must try to convince the Sultan to have Iago stay with them.

That night, Genie returns as well and Aladdin is given the opportunity to become the Royal Vizier, Jafar's old position. Aladdin tries to explain Iago's situation, but instead, Iago fumbles in being pursued by Rajah, having the Sultan and Jasmine believe Aladdin was hiding a villain from them possibly as a sign of switching sides. Sultan commands Aladdin to watch over the parrot and Jasmine becomes furious as she was hoping Aladdin wouldn't lie to her again. Iago uses reverse psychology on Jasmine to remind her why she fell in love with Aladdin in the first place, reuniting the two.

Meanwhile, Jafar has returned and kidnapped the Sultan, having everyone believe him dead as his first act as revenge on Aladdin. Aladdin is imprisoned for the "murder" of the Sultan and sentenced to death. Jasmine, Genie, Abu and the magic Carpet are all abducted by Jafar, but before Aladdin is killed, Iago frees Genie, saving Aladdin from being beheaded by Razoul, who Jafar tricked into believing that Aladdin murdered the Sultan. The group battles Jafar and a wounded Iago kicks his lamp into a lava trap that had been set for Aladdin, which results in Jafar violently imploding into a cloud of dust, destroying him for good. The city is saved, and Iago is welcomed by Aladdin and his friends into their family. Aladdin turns down the Sultan's offer of becoming his royal vizier saying that he wants to go off to see the world, Jasmine takes his hand and agrees much to the disappointment of Iago who had hoped to be given a special position in the palace.

Aladdin: The Series[]

Aladdin in the Aladdin TV series.

An animated series was created for The Disney Afternoon which aired from 1994 to 1995, based on the original 1992 feature. The series picked up where The Return of Jafar left off, with Aladdin still living on the streets of Agrabah, engaged to Jasmine.

Aladdin spends most of his days battling monsters, searching for treasure and keeping the city safe. Now that the greedy Iago is a friend, Aladdin is often persuaded to go hunt for treasure by the parrot. Along with Abis Mal, Aladdin meets new enemies, most notably evil sorcerer Mozenrath, diabolical Egyptian Cat Witch Mirage, and mad Grecian scientist Mechanicles. He serves as a laid back, loyal hero although he can sometimes be coincided into believing he is the best at being a hero and can get the group out of any situation (although this is all true). Sometimes he can be self-absorbed. A perfect example of this is in the episode "Getting the Bugs Out" where there was trouble several times and instead of battling himself, Genie and Carpet did all the work and Aladdin took all the credit.

At one point in the series, Aladdin rescues a local street-rat named Sadira. Unfortunately, Sadira falls in love with Aladdin upon being rescued by him. This leads Sadira to concoct a few villainous schemes in an attempt to break apart Aladdin and Jasmine and gain Aladdin's love. After her schemes fail, however, Sadira ultimately reforms, joining Aladdin and friends' team. Another episode showcases a similar incident where a conniving mermaid named Saleen falls in love with Aladdin and attempts to imprison Jasmine undersea or making Aladdin her slave. Unlike Sadira however, Saleen does not reform.

Some of Aladdin's past is revealed throughout the series. It is revealed that he met Abu when the monkey was working for a corrupt group of circus performers. It is also learned that Aladdin had a childhood friend named Amal who mysteriously vanished. Years after his disappearance, Aladdin learns that Amal was kidnapped and turned into a ferocious beast via the dark magic of Mirage. Aladdin rescues his friend, and Amal decides to leave Agrabah to make something of himself.

Aladdin appears in every episode of the series except for "Rain of Terror" (albeit mentioned only).

Aladdin and the King of Thieves[]

Aladdin and Jasmine at their wedding.

Aladdin and Jasmine are finally getting married. Everyone is flocking to Agrabah to be part of the "wedding of the century" but while Jasmine, Genie, and Agrabah's inhabitants are all excited, Aladdin is downhearted. Genie, Abu, and Iago find him at his former hideaway in the streets where he takes out a dagger which belonged to his father whom he believes has died long ago. Aladdin explains to Genie that he never had a father to prepare him for a family and feels that after all that has happened, he still isn't prepared. Genie gives Aladdin confidence and they head to the ceremony. The ceremony proceeds flawlessly at first, but just at the finale, a band of thieves antagonizes a herd of elephants to stampede the palace. Jasmine, Genie, Carpet, and Iago battle the intruders and Aladdin grapples with their leader. Aladdin learns he is fighting the legendary King of Thieves and they are trying to steal one particular gift given to Aladdin and Jasmine. The villains retreated after Genie gets the upper hand and the gift is still in Aladdin's possessions. The gift is a scepter that unleashes a magical Oracle. The Oracle has seen "all that has been and all that will be" and knows the answer to any question that could be asked and reveals that Aladdin's father, Cassim, is alive.

Aladdin meets his father, Cassim, for the first time.

Upon hearing this, Aladdin falls into uncertainty before finally deciding to know why his father abandoned him as a child. After being told where his father is by the Oracle, he, Carpet, Abu, and Iago ride off to the lair of the Forty Thieves to meet his father. Once inside, he is shocked to learn that his father is the King of Thieves before being captured and forced to face execution. With the only way to save himself and his friends was to battle one of the thieves. Aladdin battles Sa'Luk and is nearly killed, but he kicks Sa'Luk off a cliff into the ocean and Sa'Luk is pronounced dead. Aladdin is praised and becomes a member of the gang, but Aladdin cares nothing about this and instead presses on in his pursuit to know the story of his father. He learns that Cassim left to find a means to provide a better life for Aladdin and his mother after which, Aladdin decides to bring his father into the palace and introduces him to Genie and the others.

Overnight Iago convinces Cassim to rob the royal treasury and is arrested when discovered. Aladdin is just as furious as the Sultan and Cassim and Iago are sent to prison for life. That same night Aladdin breaks his father and Iago free and although Cassim implores him to flee the city with him, Aladdin instead returns to Agrabah to face the consequences. The Sultan understands why Aladdin did what he did and forgives him but Aladdin is still ashamed by his father's ways. Back at the lair, Sa'Luk is revealed to be alive and taken control of the thieves during Cassim's absence. Iago and Cassim are captured but Iago breaks free to warn Aladdin.

Aladdin and Jasmine begin their honeymoon.

At first, Aladdin doesn't care about Cassim's fate, but Genie suggests to him that just because his father made bad decisions, doesn't mean Aladdin needs to as well. After Jasmine backs up Genie's words, Aladdin decides not to be as stubborn as his father and decides to go to his rescue. Aladdin and company follow the Forty Thieves out across the ocean in their quest for the Hand of Midas. With the help of the Oracle, now in possession of the thieves, they discover the Vanishing Isle where the treasure lies. Jasmine and the others battle the brigands, while Aladdin reunites with his father and they both hurry inside to look for the treasure. As they arrive in an enormous cavern where the treasure is, the giant turtle on which the island rests starts to dive and they climb to higher ground. Aladdin leaps out to the floating platform and retrieves the Hand of Midas, but just as he tosses it to Cassim, Sa'luk appears and threatens to kill Aladdin if Cassim does not give him the Hand of Midas. Cassim tosses it to Sa'luk, but not knowing about its powers, Sa'luk is turned to gold by the hand. Aladdin and Cassim escape to the roof where Cassim states his regret that the Hand of Midas nearly cost him his son, his real treasure. Cassim chucks the hand out to sea, where it lands on the thieves' boat, causing it to sink. With everyone accounted for, Aladdin and company return to the palace. Aladdin and Jasmine finally marry, bid Cassim and his new travel sidekick Iago farewell, and leave for their honeymoon.

Hercules: The Animated Series[]

Aladdin with Hercules in "Hercules and the Arabian Night".

Aladdin appears in the episode "Hercules and the Arabian Night". In the episode, Jafar is revived by Hades and the villains plot to use each other's abilities to eliminate their enemies. Hades sends his lackeys Pain and Panic, to battle Aladdin. During a carpet ride, Pain and Panic arrive and morph into beasts to battle Aladdin and anger his wife Jasmine. Confused by the unknown creatures, Aladdin tricks them into rubbing Genie's lamp, having Genie punch the villains out of the Arabian parallel world and back to the Underworld.

Later on, Abu goes missing, and Hercules is said to be the kidnapper. After leaving Greece parallel to the Arabian town, Hercules himself arrives in Agrabah to battle Aladdin. After a rampage through the city, Hercules blames Aladdin for the kidnapping of his friend Icarus. Aladdin denies the claim, and the heroes begin to rethink their anger towards one another. Hercules believes it was Jafar who is behind the scheme, but Aladdin thinks not since he and Jasmine still believe Jafar is dead. However, Hercules and his trainer Phil explain that Jafar attacked them earlier that day. The heroes then realize that Jafar had to have teamed up with Hades and the two travel to the Underworld to save their friends.

In the Underworld, Jafar attacks Aladdin, who reveals to be Hercules in disguise while Aladdin was disguised as Hercules. This gives Aladdin a chance to grab Jafar's staff and passes it to Herc who destroys it, thus killing Jafar once more. Once the villains were defeated, Aladdin and Hercules bid farewell and Aladdin assures Hercules that he will become a great hero someday.

An emoticon version of Aladdin appeared in the Aladdin entry of the As Told by Emoji short series.

Live-action appearances[]

Aladdin (2019)[]

Mena Massoud as Aladdin in the 2019 remake.

Aladdin keeps his role of titular protagonist in the live-action adaptation of his movie: many traits of his characters are kept, adding a deep knowledge of treasures and luxury goods which help him identify a disguised Jasmine as a person coming from the palace. Aladdin also wears a shirt under his trademark gilet and when he's transformed into a prince he's not "Ali Ababwa", but "Ali from Ababwa", changing his false surname into the name of his imaginary kingdom.

Aladdin first appears walking around the street markets of Agrabah along with his pet monkey Abu where he usually gets into trouble with merchants and guards because of Agrabah's rule about thieves. He and Dalia manage to escape the guards before the two get arrested. Outsmarting the guards, Aladdin takes Dalia to his home and shows her a view of Agrabah in which the two hear the arrival of Prince Anders from Skånland to Agrabah. When Aladdin encounters a guard rudely asking him to make way for the prince, Aladdin upsets him to which the guard threatens him that he will have a poor life as a street person. Back at home, Aladdin feels upset about the situation he had with the guard furious at him.

The next day, Aladdin's monkey Abu outsmarts a palace guard to get into the Palace of Agrabah in order to marry Princess Jasmine who refuses to marry Prince Anders after having a conversation with Dalia to which Iago spies in Abu outsmarting the guard to which he found out that Abu is linked to the "Diamond in the Rough" as Jafar's parrot sees him getting into the palace. Inside the palace, Aladdin disguises himself as a servant to avoid getting caught by the guards and talks with Jasmine and Dalia for a while until his servant hat falls off. The guards then catch him as they found out that Aladdin is the Diamond in the Rough that Jafar is looking for. Aladdin is then taken to the desert where Jafar can make him rich by finding a magical lamp in the Cave of Wonders to make him rich. The Cave warns him that only one person can enter while Jafar tells him to avoid touching any treasure inside except for the lamp. Inside, Aladdin and Abu walk across the Cave where they encounter a magic carpet that follows the duo along the way. Aladdin then finds the lamp Jafar is looking for while Abu discovers a ruby he found along the way. As Abu touches the ruby, the Cave begins to rumble as Aladdin notices him doing the thing he should not do. Aladdin and Abu plan to escape the Cave that is collapsing with the help of Carpet bringing the two to where Jafar is at. Aladdin refuses to give the lamp at first but follows what Jafar tells him. Giving the lamp, Jafar almost causes Aladdin to fall to his demise, but Abu tackles him, causing Jafar to lose the lamp as the cave collapses.

Stuck in the cave, Aladdin then devises a plan to figure out how to get out in which Carpet points to the lamp he is holding, telling Aladdin to rub the lamp. Rubbing the lamp, it spawns a Genie who talks to him and explains that Aladdin never had a friend like him so Aladdin mingles and makes friends with him during the musical number "Friend Like Me". After the song, the Genie gives out rules when Aladdin only has three wishes when asking the Genie to do something by granting wishes. Aladdin wishes to get out of the cave in which the Genie accepts his request. The Genie gets Aladdin, Abu, and Carpet out of the Cave, using up his first wish. Meanwhile, in the desert, Aladdin makes a conversation with the Genie in which Aladdin explains that he wants him to become a prince in order to get Jasmine's attention. Successfully doing so, the Genie transforms Aladdin into a prince, using up his second wish and leaving Aladdin to have one more wish left. Since Aladdin (dressed as "Prince Ali") is too big to ride on Abu, Genie transforms him into an elephant in order to get to Agrabah.

Meanwhile, at Agrabah, the citizens on the streets watch Aladdin arriving at the streets where he is cheered on by a large crowd as Aladdin attempts to get Jasmine's attention. At the Palace, Aladdin arrives there to get Jasmine's attention but she feels unimpressed about his arrival, including various gifts and jewels seen during the musical number "Prince Ali". Aladdin then finally bonds with Jasmine by riding on Carpet which takes the couple to show the world around them during the musical number "A Whole New World" to which Carpet shows them around various parts near Agrabah instead of other locations outside of Agrabah in the animated film. After the song, Jasmine finds out that "Prince Ali" is actually Aladdin, the street person in the market and back at the palace, Jafar also discovers his true identity. Upon discovering his true identity, Jafar begs Aladdin to know if he has the lamp, but Aladdin denies by telling him he has no lamp. Aladdin is then sent to drown in the ocean when Jafar punishes him for not giving him the lamp.

Underwater, the Genie notices Aladdin telling him to escape but Aladdin cannot talk because he is underwater so he does the wish for him in order to escape from a watery demise. Back at the palace, Aladdin notices Jafar hypnotizing the Sultan to change his orders to a negative influence to which Aladdin smashes the cobra staff while the Sultan tells the guards to arrest him. Upon remembering people calling him "Prince Ali" to which he explains to himself that Aladdin is not from Ababwa, he had a conversation with the Genie to which he tells him that he always has to tell the truth about if he is really Prince Ali or not. Upon telling this, it upsets the Genie after Aladdin finds out that the second wish Aladdin did was wrong to everyone in Agrabah as he feels upset that he should stop pretending to be a prince from Ababwa to attract Jasmine.

When Jafar gets freed from prison and receives the Genie as his new master, his first wish is to become the ruler of Agrabah; soon as Jafar becomes the ruler of Agrabah, Aladdin, Abu, and Carpet sneak up into Jafar's devious plans. Jafar sends the inhabitants in Agrabah to the dungeon and then sends Aladdin to a frozen wasteland after realizing that "Prince Ali" is actually Aladdin. Afterward, Aladdin is banished to frozen wasteland while the rest of the inhabitants in the palace are sent to the dungeon. Aladdin finds Abu in the frozen wasteland while he rides on Carpet to escape from a frigid fate. Aladdin, Abu, and Carpet arrive back to the palace where Aladdin notices Jasmine refusing to marry Jafar as Jasmine escapes with the lamp. Jafar then transforms Iago into the size of a roc to get the lamp to retrieve it to him but the Sultan stops Jafar from doing this task, causing him to lose his turban and his staff (also shrinking Iago back to his normal form). Soon as Jafar gets his staff back, Aladdin and everyone in Agrabah notices Jafar creating a powerful storm to destroy Agrabah with Aladdin and Jasmine noticing his rage as the two arrive back to the palace.

Aladdin and Jasmine arrive back to the palace where Jafar grants his final wish to become a powerful genie. The Genie does this wish as Jafar is transformed into a genie; as soon as Jafar prepares to destroy the world, he is unable to because of the gauntlets chaining him to which Aladdin explains he didn't stop him from doing so. Soon as Jafar and Iago are sucked back into the lamp, the Genie banishes them to the Cave of Wonders while Aladdin apologizes to Jasmine for lying to her and everyone in Agrabah. The Genie then arrives and is reunited with Aladdin where he explains to him that he must marry a princess he loves to which Aladdin chose Princess Jasmine to be his wife. Aladdin uses his final wish to set the Genie free; later, Aladdin finally marries Jasmine in front of a large crowd as Jasmine finally found a prince to marry. Aladdin and everyone in the palace are later seen dancing to the reprise of "Friend Like Me" during the credits.

Tales from Agrabah[]

A young Aladdin and Abu, shortly after their first meeting in Tales from Agrabah.

The chapter book highlights several significant moments throughout Aladdin's early life; from his childhood following being orphaned, up until his first meeting with Jasmine during adulthood.

The second chapter, Monkeying Around, shows an alternate matter of circumstances regarding how Aladdin and Abu met. Here, Abu was the pet of a wealthy woman; the woman treats Abu more as her possession rather than her companion, and she regularly forces him to perform acts for her friends. Abu one day escapes into the marketplace, where he and Aladdin clash for the first time. Aladdin's sympathy for Abu's desire to be free ultimately leads the two to become friends and life partners.

In the fourth chapter, Prince for a Day, Aladdin saves the son of a privileged merchant, who rewards Aladdin with a generous share of his wealth. Aladdin, however, warmly shares his wealth with his unfortunate friends in Agrabah, which leads to his eventual state of poverty, once again.

In the sixth chapter, Fortunate and Fame, Aladdin and Abu assume the role of fortune tellers as a means to help out their elderly friend. Before that, the elderly man tells Aladdin his fortune very accurately, which references the events of the film.

The final chapter, A Whole New World, retells Aladdin and Jasmine's first meeting in the marketplace.

Disney's Aladdin in Nasira's Revenge[]

Taking place before the events of Aladdin and the King of Thieves, the evil sorceress Nasira is out to avenge the death of her brother, the nefarious wizard Jafar. She begins her vengeful plot by taking over the palace with a spell and kidnapping Princess Jasmine and the Sultan; she then commands the guards to bring Aladdin to her. The treacherous Nasira believes that if she collects a set of ancient relics that are spread all over Agrabah she might be able to revive Jafar and take over the world, and so she uses her captives to force Aladdin into doing this job for her. The story is told in the cutscenes using the game engine.

Kingdom Hearts series[]

Aladdin KHREC.png

Aladdin appears in the games as a party member and ally to Sora when the player goes to Agrabah.

In Kingdom Hearts, Aladdin was helping Jasmine, a Princess of Heart, escape the palace from Jafar (a member of Maleficent's council) and the Heartless. While Jasmine remained hidden among the streets of Agrabah as Jafar and the Heartless searched for her, including overhearing a conversation between Jafar and Maleficent, Aladdin took off to find a means to help her. With Abu, he went off to the Cave of Wonders to become a prince. It is there he meets Sora, Donald, and Goofy and obtains both the Magic Carpet and the lamp containing Genie, being rescued when he and Abu are sinking into the sand following the Cave's collapse, while Carpet had gone back to Agrabah to find help, only to be found by Sora in Aladdin's house, trapped under a dresser, struggling to get free. After using one wish to save the group from Heartless, Aladdin tries to use his second to save Jasmine when confronting Jafar outside the palace gates but is interrupted when Iago steals the lamp, forcing Genie to obey Jafar as his new master, and Jasmine falls into a disguised Pot Spider Heartless that becomes part of the Pot Centipede Heartless boss that Jafar unleashes on Aladdin and Sora as he flees. Though the Pot Centipede and all the Pot Spiders supporting it are slain, Jasmine is nowhere to be found, having been taken by Jafar to find Agrabah's Keyhole. In the Cave of Wonders, Jafar gives Jasmine to Riku just as the vizier is defeated by the group, first when he tries fighting them with his spells and staff, then after making his wish to gain his genie powers. Although Genie offers to help find Jasmine with the use of his third wish, Aladdin keeps his promise and wishes for Genie to be free. Glad that he made his friend happy, Aladdin asks Genie to aid Sora as a Summon. At the end of the game, Jasmine returns and reunites with Aladdin.

Aladdin also appears in Chain of Memories as a figment of Sora's memories, which follows a similar pattern to the first game.

In 358/2 Days, Aladdin's appearance is the only game in the series not to feature him as an ally or party member. He appears briefly in Agrabah, recent sandstorms have occurred along with the reappearance of Heartless.

Aladdin returns in Kingdom Hearts II, set one year after the events of the first game. By this time, Aladdin has moved into the palace but has been in boredom since Genie and Carpet had departed. He headed off into the city to find excitement until Abu had stolen a lamp from the Peddler. Chasing after Abu, he bumps into Sora, Donald, Goofy, and Iago, the latter realizing that the lamp was Jafar's lamp, and try to get it from the Peddler. However, the Peddler will only give it in exchange for treasure, forcing the group to go to the Cave of Wonders and run into Pete there with Heartless. After defeating the Heartless, Sora and Aladdin rush back to Agrabah to prevent Pete from getting the lamp, following with the return of Jafar. Ultimately, they are successful and re-obtain the lamp, even when Pete attempted to get it back by calling the powerful Volcanic Lord and Blizzard Lord tag-team Heartless bosses in to attack Sora and Aladdin. Unfortunately, after the lamp was hidden, the Peddler accidentally releases Jafar. Aladdin joins Sora in searching the desert ruins, but realize that Iago had misled them because of Jafar. When they return to Agrabah, catching Jafar outside the palace gates with Jasmine shackled to the doors, Jafar challenges the group by assuming his genie form but is defeated, destroying both him and his lamp. Aladdin then rejoices with his friends, now joined by Iago, and encourages Sora to find Riku.

A data version of Aladdin appears in Coded as an ally. Here, Aladdin asks Sora to help him find Jasmine, who was kidnapped by Jafar.

Kinect Disneyland Adventures[]

Aladdin in Kinect Disneyland Adventures.

Aladdin can be found as a meet-and-greet character outside Aladdin's Oasis in Adventureland. He is also featured in the Mickey's Soundsational Parade mini-game. He gives several tasks to the player throughout the game, including cheering up Genie to get him to come out of hiding, thus spawning Genie to be interacted with. Another task involves Aladdin asking the player to find dates for Jasmine and then to deliver them to her, spawning her upon accepting. At one point, Genie tells Aladdin about magical scarabs that lead to a hidden treasure, so he asks the player to find the pieces and take them to Genie to fix. After Genie repairs the scarabs, Aladdin uses them to make a necklace for Jasmine. At another point in the game, he gives you a magical spyglass that is said to "see that which no eye can see."


Aladdin appears in the popular game series, debuting in the 2.0 edition as a playable character alongside Jasmine. He plays a part in the game's opening/tutorial where the objective is to follow a star that leads to a mysterious treasure. After evading a greedy Donald Duck, Aladdin follows the star through an evolving Agrabah, which eventually leads him to Big Ben in London, England, transitioning into the stage and tutorial gameplay for Tinker Bell from Peter Pan.

Some of Aladdin's weapons include the power of Genie's lamp and an Arabic blade. Using the Power Disc "Rags to Riches", players can unlock Aladdin's Prince Ali attire. Another Power Disc has the ability to summon a magic carpet for travel and racing purposes.

Disney Magic Kingdoms[]

With his friends by his side, Aladdin defeats Jafar and prevents his curse from destroying the kingdom. Genie's party is held to celebrate, and afterward, Aladdin and Jasmine go out on a date. In during which, Aladdin takes Jasmine to a part of the kingdom that reminds him of his home, where they spent their first evening together.


Adam Jacobs as Aladdin in the Broadway musical.

Aladdin serves as the protagonist of the Broadway musical adaptation of the film, with Adam Jacobs originating the role.

Like all Disney musical adaptations, there are a few key differences in terms of Aladdin's role in the story, in contrast to the original animated version. For instance, here, instead of having Abu, Aladdin has three human best friends by the names of Babkak, Omar, and Kassim, who, like Aladdin, are thieves making constant attempts to turn their lives around by becoming street performers.

A few added musical numbers also appear; such as the moderately famous "Proud of Your Boy". Though Aladdin's mother is still deceased in this version, the song is still prominently featured, being sung by the street rat. Other songs include "A Million Miles Away" (a duet with Jasmine), "Diamond in the Rough" with Jafar and Iago, and more.

Aside from these differences, though, Aladdin's role stays truthful to the source material, for the most part.

The realtionships of Aladdin.



"I choose you, Aladdin."
"Call me Al."

—Jasmine and Aladdin

Aladdin with Jasmine.

Meeting Jasmine was the first event to change Aladdin's life. Aladdin was immediately taken by the princess' beauty, claiming she stood out from the regular crowd bustling through Agrabah. In the evening of their first meeting, Aladdin was also introduced to Jasmine as a person, as she revealed herself to be charitable, comedic, and burdened with pressures from society, and a longing to escape and be free. These traits were relatable to Aladdin, who noted Jasmine's personality—being "smart and fun" as he described—to be the first example as to why he fell in love with her, when he confessed his admiration for the princess to Genie. Jasmine was also the first human character in the film seen showing Aladdin any form of kindness, or having treated him as an equal, instead of someone below her. In turn, Aladdin was the first to treat Jasmine as a person, rather than an object, such as palace life would have, by listening to her problems and showing genuine care for her feelings.

Once Aladdin learns Jasmine's true identity as a princess, however, his insecurities overwhelm him, as he immediately assumes Jasmine sees his character and dreams to live a better life as a pathetic joke, being that he's a street rat, and they are seen as the lowest form of life in Agrabah, per the norm. This would lead to Aladdin's first wish to disguise himself as "Prince Ali", believing the guise would at least give him a chance to interact with her again. Aladdin's views on royalty ruin his act, as he portrays himself as boastful and arrogant, as most royals are, though this immediately turns Jasmine against him, as she fails to recognize him under his disguise. It isn't until Aladdin allows his act to fade, and his true colors to take effect, that Jasmine shows interest, but his insecurities, once again, prevent him from telling her the truth of his identity. The guilt of lying to Jasmine frustrates him to the point of finally accepting the fact that he must tell Jasmine the truth, though he loses control of the lamp before he can.

Aladdin's true identity is revealed, but through his cunning and heroics, he is able to save Jasmine from Jafar by risking and nearly losing his life, proving his love for Jasmine. Jasmine forgives Aladdin for his actions, understanding the reasoning behind them, but Aladdin refuses to continue living a lie by using his last wish to restore his princely title, instead using it to free Genie, once again proving his pure heart and worth. This is enough for the Sultan to declare Aladdin is worthy enough to marry his daughter, despite not being a prince, much to the young couple's delight. As seen during the finale, the two then embrace the new chapter of their lives, and the fact that they can begin it together.

Throughout the sequels and television series, Aladdin and Jasmine's relationship continue to grow, and the princess is often the center of Aladdin's various adventures, mostly due to his desire to continuously protect, impress, or otherwise prove his love for the former.

Friends and Allies[]


"Perfect timing, Abu, as usual."


Aladdin and Abu.

Aladdin's friend and partner, the two are as close as brothers. They have been together ever since Aladdin started his career as a thief long before he met everyone else. While Abu has proven to be advantageous in getting Aladdin out of messes, he has also been equally troublesome for Aladdin due to the monkey's kleptomaniac ways. However, Abu also serves as Aladdin's conscience from time to time. Like Aladdin, Abu is cunning and elusive, which has helped them escape from Jafar's clutches more than once and obtain the lamp after Jafar attempted to betray them. Whenever Aladdin is in danger, Abu is the first to come in and save him, even though both times he was cursed as a result. Aladdin is also protective of Abu, and apparently values him over most of the characters, aside from Jasmine. This is evidenced by Aladdin's banishment to the ends of the earth on the original film where, despite freezing to death himself, the street rat's immediate concern was finding Abu and ensuring he was safe.


Aladdin and Genie.

Genie is one of Aladdin's closest friends. Unlike most of Genie's former masters, Aladdin respected Genie as a person rather than an object, due to the thief's compassionate nature; even going as far as to create a promise to free him as part of his last wish. Despite this, Genie was not one who liked to be tricked, but he was willing to admit his naivety though would not allow any more wishes for free. To aid in Aladdin's prince disguise, Genie helped glamorize his image, though he still tried giving advice on how to approach Jasmine but to no avail. However, when Aladdin nearly drowned to death after being thrown into the ocean, Genie willingly saves Aladdin as the second wish, even though Aladdin did not technically say to do this directly, demonstrating how much Genie cared about his friend.

When Aladdin chose to spend the last wish on being a prince forever, Genie felt betrayed over their apparent friendship that he became bitter towards him. To his horror however, Genie would become servant to the mad Jafar and become forced to do his bidding. While Aladdin tried to talk Genie out of this, Genie apologized but could do nothing against Jafar nor save Aladdin from being banished, where he deeply regretted doing these actions. When Aladdin survived, Genie was extremely happy to see him and even cheered for him against Jafar. After Aladdin finally stopped Jafar, Genie was content with letting Aladdin choose his last wish. To his joy, Aladdin keeps his word and releases Genie from his burden. Genie was extremely happy to be released but apologized to Aladdin for sacrificing his chance at love. However, when the Sultan voided the tradition of the princess marrying a prince and allowed her to marry whomever she wanted, Genie was more than excited over the couple's success.

Genie often refers to him as "Al".

Magic Carpet[]

Aladdin (and Abu) with the carpet.

The Carpet is an acquaintance to Aladdin similar to his relationship with Abu. But while Abu was initially hostile to the Carpet's nature, Aladdin welcomed it and invited it to join the duo in their journey. Loyal to Aladdin, Carpet comes to Aladdin's aid and transport many times. Like Abu, the Carpet was willing to risk itself to protect Aladdin no matter how dangerous the enemy is or what harm comes to it. Aladdin has high faith in the Carpet and gets along well with it since Carpet is often more responsible than Abu, Iago, or Genie. However, it can get just as annoyed as the rest of Aladdin's friends when Aladdin tries to keep up with lies or become arrogant.


Aladdin and Iago.

"He owed me one. That's why he stood up for me."


Aladdin was at first untrustworthy of Iago since he had originally served as Jafar's minion.

But when he proved his worth after rescuing his friends and destroying Jafar, Iago gained a respect and friendship with him.

Although Aladdin still disliked Iago's greed for treasure and mainly doing good deeds in hope of a reward which sometimes landed them in trouble, they maintained a good relationship.



Aladdin with his father.

Aladdin's relationship with his father was strenous at first as Cassim had left him and his mother when he was a child to gain a better life for them.

After Aladdin's wedding to Jasmine was finally taking place, Aladdin set out to find his father and invite him. He was horrified when it turned out that Cassim was the leader of a band of robbers called the Forty Thieves and after bringing him back to Agrabah saw his father would not change his thieving ways and gradually became bitter against him even more.

After some persuasion from his friends, Aladdin sets out to rescue his father who is being forced by the evil Sa'Luk to find an artifact called the Hand of Midas. However in the ensuing fight ending with Sa'Luk being killed, Cassim begins to realize that Aladdin was his true treasure and tosses the hand into the sea. Their relationship is mended and they part ways after Aladdin and Jasmine's wedding.



"Just... Where did you say you were from?"
"Oh, uh, much farther than you've traveled, I mean, sure."
"Try me."

—Jafar and Aladdin

Aladdin (as Prince Ali) with Jafar.

Jafar and Aladdin share a relationship built on deceit, hatred, and revenge. When first introduced to Aladdin as an individual, Jafar saw the latter as nothing more than an eventually-disposable tool in his plot to take over the kingdom. Even during the climax, despite constantly proving himself, Jafar directly viewed Aladdin as "nothing" without his genie. Once given the chance, he had no qualms with leaving Aladdin for dead in the sunken Cave of Wonders. Though Aladdin showed brief anger towards Jafar's manipulation and betrayal, he held no bitter feelings from that moment onward (though he was unaware of Jafar's true identity, as the latter was in disguise when he and Aladdin first met), being that he didn't mention or even allude to the beggar that betrayed him, accepting the fact that he was another hateful individual that he unfortunately encountered. Once Jafar made an attempt to kill Aladdin (under the guise of "Prince Ali"), Aladdin retaliated to prevent the vizier from causing harm to Jasmine or the Sultan, ultimately being the one who reveals Jafar's treacherous nature.

Aladdin's constant heroism and ability to foil his plots would permanently turn Jafar against the street rat, and an ongoing ambition to kill Aladdin out of a desire for vengeance would ensue. This would most prominently be showcased in Return of Jafar, where Jafar coupled his desire to rule Agrabah with the goal to both torture and finally kill Aladdin, meticulously orchestrating events that would succeed both tasks simultaneously.
