Aladdin is a created cartoon character that features in Aladdin Games, which is part of a bigger gaming and movie franchise. In some instances, he is called Prince Ali Ababwa, though Aladdin is his popular recognition. He is the protagonist and the major fictional character in the 1992’s Disney movie, which was named after his name. After that, he graced other two back-to-back movies – The Return of Jafar and the King of Thieves that were released in 1994 and 1996 respectively.

Aladdin is first introduced when he is only 18 years, where we get to learn that he did not have a chance to attend school. As such, a better part of his life has been on the streets of Agrabah, where result to stealing basic commodities such as food so that he can make ends meet. He came from a poor family and has to bear an unconducive upbringing that sees his father Cassim desert them. Her mother is therefore forced to seek odd jobs in attempts to provide for her son. Eventually, she is held hostage by thugs and later presumed dead. As a consequence, Aladdin turns into dirty undertakings to survive, for instance, he is captured by the captain of Sultan’s security personnel, named Razoul, simply for stealing an apple. This marks the start of his witty behavior because after being arrested, he is locked inside detention cells in a specific place within the palace. However, he manages to get access to the keys of the chains tying him and finally escapes. At 16 years he found some friends, and monkey Abu was among the new group.
About the movie character
The most prominent Aladdin’s character is that of a good-hearted individual. Although he is clever, brave, and young, his lack of confidence is evident when he goes all out to win acceptance and affection from other characters. Notably, he is a thief and liar although it is intertwined with good intentions since he is doing all these to attain existence and survival. When it comes to achieving set goals, he is a go-getter, compared to many Disney players who are passive in nature.
Just like other Disney actors, Aladdin is developed with large eyes, maybe to designate innocence. He looks like an 18-year old boy, is of medium size, somewhat taller and light-skinned in comparison to Jasmine. In the streets, he is commonly known as the street rat. In terms of clothing, he wears a red hat, shirtless, although the upper body part is covered with a purple vest, and a loose-fitting trouser with a yellow spot. Conspicuously, he wears no shoes. He also dons a “Prince Ali” dress that is white, which matches well with a turban, belt, and gold boots. Regardless of his rather craggy outlook, Aladdin is a charming man who receives attention from women as he goes on with his daily duties.
It is also important to mention that he is selfless and loving because he dislikes experiencing his friends getting into trouble. He is a naïve character due to his behavior when Jasmine is around. He fears to initiate a conversation for fear of being discovered, or most dreadfully, treat him badly since he comes from the streets.
