Background For Aladdin:
Aladdin is the titular protagonist of Disney’s 1992 animated feature film of the same name. A former street rat from the city of Agrabah, Aladdin spent much of his youth scraping for food and ducking guards with his monkey sidekick Abu. Though sanguine, Aladdin’s poor upbringing left him with severe insecurity. Consequently, he feels worthless and undeserving of love, specifically that of Princess Jasmine. He nevertheless sustained a heroically selfless deposition. Thus, he is entitled to a magic lamp concealing a wish-granting genie.
Aladdin is based on the eponymous character of the Aladdin folk tales featured in the Middle Eastern One Thousand and One Nights stories.
While harboring a modest amount of physical prowess, Aladdin’s true strength lies within his intelligence and wit. He utilizes these aspects to best his enemies, and such practices have proven effective in various situations throughout the franchise. He is a quick-thinker, with the ability to formulate a scheme (usually varying in scale, making him rather versatile) that ends in his favor. Aladdin also takes advantage of his societal stereotype to further his schemes, as most wouldn’t expect a meager street urchin to have the intellect to outwit others.
Although generally cheery and fun-loving in nature, Aladdin also shows himself to be insecure throughout the events of the original film. Being a street rat, Aladdin normally faced discrimination in the city of Agrabah whose inhabitants see him as a worthless member of society. This cruelty eventually led Aladdin to believe such claims; he saw himself as unworthy of Princess Jasmine’s affections, believing she deserved someone of higher class and, by extension, someone who can provide for her. These insecurities would prompt Aladdin to perform negative acts such as compulsively lying, going back on promises, and hiding his true self under the guise of “Prince Ali”.
Once the climax of the original film arrives, however, Aladdin is stripped of his aid (including magic and the help of his allies) forcing him to act on his own in order to save the city. He does so by putting his wit to use and successfully ends the battle victorious. Following these events, Aladdin became more accepting of his status, refusing to continue living a lie, and embracing who he is as a person.
