            Follow me to a place where incredible feats are routine every hour or so, where a thief lives in a palace and a genie is always on the go.

Aladdin character size-comparison chart and color palette.
            In 1988, lyricist Howard Ashman pitched an adaptation of the fable of Aladdin and the magic lamp from One Thousand and One Nights to Disney. He was joined by partner Alan Menken who co-wrote several songs and a film treatment. Linda Woolverton wrote a screenplay from it, and directors John Musker and Ron Clements chose the project to work on over two others; one of which eventually became The Lion King. Although the studio was committed to a November 25th, 1992 release date, studio head Jeffrey Katzenberg found the script unengaging and ordered massive rewrites. Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio handled those, and the script was approved.

            The resulting film was Aladdin, which put a Disney-spin on the classic story to make it more appropriate for their audiences. The sinister Jafar (Jonathan Freeman), Grand Vizier to the Sultan (Douglas Seale) of the fictional Arabian city of Agrabah, enlisted street thief Aladdin (Scott Weinger) and his monkey, Abu (Frank Welker), to steal a magic lamp from the Cave of Wonders (Welker) for him. Instead, Aladdin freed and befriended the Genie (Robin Williams) inside, as well as a living magic carpet aptly named Carpet, and together they face off against Jafar; halting his plans to conquer the kingdom and marry the lovely Princess Jasmine (Linda Larkin), whom Aladdin had fallen for.

Aladdin and Abu.

            Aladdin was a “street rat” in Agrabah; living by stealing whatever he needed and surviving on his cleverness and wits. He was designed by a team of animators led by Glen Keane, originally resembling Michael J. Fox. Wanting to mature the design a bit, elements were derived from Tom Cruise and various Calvin Klein models, as well as basing his loose pants on rapper MC Hammer’s. When Weinger was cast, Keane would sketch him during recording sessions to further blend the character to his performance. After the rewrites, Aladdin’s personality became rougher to bring him closer to a young Harrison Ford. Clements had seen Weinger during his time in the series The Family Man and liked his voice enough to bring him in for an audition. His companion, Abu, was a loyal friend but also a bit of a kleptomaniac. He was based on the Abu character from the 1940 version of The Thief of Bagdad. Although monkeys were studied for the character at the San Francisco Zoo, the character was given many human-like qualities and could even speak somewhat. He was animated by Duncan Marjoribanks.

Jasmine is tempted by Saleen.

            Princes Jasmine was based on Princess Badroulbadour from the Aladdin story; however made less vain and spoiled, and her ethnicity switched from Asian to match the new location of the story. The name “Jasmine” was chosen due to its being one of the most popular baby names at the time. She was the beautiful princess that was being forced to marry by her 16th birthday in accordance to the law of the land. However, she was free-spirited, wanted to marry who she wanted to, and craved adventure; traits given to her as a result of the script rewrites that made her a stronger character. She was designed and animated by Mark Henn, who used his sister Beth’s facial features and was inspired by a theme park guest’s long, flowing hair. Larkin, accompanying a friend on an audition for the role, decided to audition as well and won the role. However, she almost didn’t as her pitch was deemed too high and sounding too young, but Clements and Musker fought for her to stay. Her pet was a tiger named Rajah (Welker) who displayed many dog-like behaviors. Despite not being anthropomorphized, he was capable of understanding human language and emotions. Rajah’s animation was handled by Aaron Blaise.

The Genie and his lamp.

            The Genie (who was never given a proper name) was created with Robin Williams in mind. Initially met with resistance for their choice, Clements and Musker compiled a reel of Williams’ stand-up and played it to animations of the Genie done by supervising animator Eric Goldberg. Williams, enjoying the reel, eventually signed on to the film at base pay in gratitude for the success of his movie Good Morning, Vietnam and to be a part of the “animation tradition”. Williams was allowed to improvise much of his dialogue with minimal direction, resulting in approximately 16 hours’ worth of material that had everyone in the studio rolling with laughter. The best lines were selected by Goldberg to work off of. As a result, Genie became a source of comic relief in the film; using his vast powers to constantly transform into various beings and things, and making in-jokes and references beyond the universe where the film was set.

Iago throwing a fit, as usual.

            Iago (Gilbert Gottfried) was Jafar’s colorful parrot companion. Initially scripted as being a calm, serious, British character, the filmmakers abandoned that concept upon seeing Gottfried in Beverly Hills Cop II and casting him in the role. As a result, Iago became a high-strung and outspoken character, always willing to vent his frustrations and neurosis. He was also notoriously greedy and went to outlandish lengths to acquire wealth. Animator Will Finn incorporated some of Gottfried’s appearance into Igao’s. Iago’s name was derived from Shakespeare’s Othello, where Othello had a sidekick named Iago he believed to be trustworthy, but really had his own selfish agendas.

Aladdin and Abu ride Carpet.

            Carpet was a living entity unto itself. It had a personality through its silence and an obvious intelligence, being good at Chess for one thing. Animator Randy Cartwright designed it to use body language and pantomime to communicate, making it more flexible and almost human. For the film, computer artist Tina Price added a faux-Persian design that could match Carpet’s movements without changing too much in appearance. It became Aladdin’s primary mode of transportation.

            The film previewed on November 13th, 1992 before opening in a wide release on the 25th. Despite taking five of its 22 weeks to reach #1 at the box office, it became the most successful movie of the year. Before its release, Tad Stones and Alan Zaslove were commissioned to begin work on an animated series based on the concept similar to Disney’s approach with The Little Mermaid; however Stones suggested that they should eye a direct-to-video sequel in the ever-growing home video market. Considering a sequel would be cheaper to produce that way, and able to be released three years sooner in order to appease audience demand for more, the idea was approved and what was intended to be the first five episodes of the animated series ended up being gathered and condensed into 1994’s The Return of Jafar, written by Jan Strnad, Kevin Campbell, Brian Swenlin, Mirith J. Colao, Bill Motz, Bob Roth, Dev Ross, and Steve Roberts, from a story by Stones, Duane Capizzi, Doug Langdale, Mark McCorkle and Robert Schooley, and directed by Stones, Zaslove and Toby Shelton. It became Disney’s first direct-to-video animated feature release.

Sadira uses her magic to switch places with Jasmine.

            The film saw Iago managing to free himself from the lamp where Jafar, who was tricked into wishing he was a genie, became imprisoned and rebelled against his former master in the hopes of getting in Aladdin’s good graces to return to palace living. Stones really liked the Iago character and wanted to see him as part of the main crew. The incompetent bandit Abis Mal (Jason Alexander) found the lamp and freed Jafar. Aladdin and his friends banded together, with the help of Iago, to defeat Jafar once and for all by destroying his lamp. All of the original cast returned except for the Sultan, who was voiced by Val Bettin due to Douglas Seale’s declining health, and the Genie. Williams had stipulated as part of his signing on to the film that Disney couldn’t use him as promotion for the film and that the Genie should only take up about 25% of the movie posters. Disney reneged on the agreement, and Williams refused to work with them again. The Genie role was taken over by Dan Castellaneta, who was instructed not to do a Williams impression but was an accomplished improvisational actor in his own right.

Although the sequel was not as well-received as the first, it was still a commercial success; generating an estimated $100 million in sales against its $3-3.5 million budget. Production on the animated series continued from where the film left off. Animated by Slightly Offbeat Productions Studios in New Zealand, the series ran nine episodes in previews on The Disney Channel in February of 1994 before officially beginning in syndication on The Disney Afternoon 2-hour programming block and on CBS Saturday mornings beginning September 17. The series maintained the look and cast from Return of Jafar, with Aladdin resuming living in his hovel while still being engaged to Princess Jasmine. Genie, despite being freed at the end of the first movie, once again wore the wrist bands that marked his servitude. The series used a rearrangement of the soundtrack from the first movie, notably the Return of Jafar version of the song “Arabian Nights” by Menken and Ashman with vocals provided by Bruce Adler as the main theme. A second version of the intro featured new clips from the first CBS season interspersed with the ones shown previously.

Mozenrath and his undead minions.

Continuing on like the movies, Aladdin and his friends journeyed around Agrabah and the neighboring kingdoms; going on treasure hunts, protecting their home, and encountering a myriad of mystical beings—both good and sinister. They often found themselves at the mercy of individuals like Mechanicles (Charlie Adler), an ancient Greek scientist who specializes in advanced mechanics and had an OCD about cleanliness; Mirage (Bebe Neuwirth), a cat-like enchantress who controlled illusions, dreams and shadows; Ayam Aghoul (Hamilton Camp), an undead ghoul who was obsessed with trapping Aladdin and his friends in the Netherworld; Saleen (Julie Brown), a sea elemental who was determined to make Aladdin her merman prince of the sea; and Mozenrath (Jonathan Brandis & Jeff Bennett), a young sorcerer whose gauntlet was both the source of his powers and rapidly fed on his physical body, causing him to seek additional means of power as well as a new form and was frequently accompanied by his flying eel, Xerxes (Welker). Abis Mal from Return of Jafar also made several appearances with his sidekick Haroud Hazi Bin (James Avery).  

The sinister Mirage.

Of course, the vast deserts were not just full of perils. Along the way they had also made friends like Sadira (Kellie Martin), a fellow street rat who turned to sand magic in order to forcefully win Aladdin’s heart before eventually becoming friends with him; Prince Uncouthma (Tino Insana), ruler of the barbaric land of Odiferous who began as a suitor for Jasmine before eventually marrying Brawnhilda (Carol Kane) and having a son named Bud (E.G. Daily); Thundra (Candi Milo), a Rainbird who oversaw the world’s weather from her rain forest and developed affections for Iago; and Merc (Dorian Harwood), the captain of a flying ship who sought to hunt and kill a giant land-shark.

Lover's spat.

The series was written by Stones, Campbell, Colao, Motz, Roth, Roberts, Ross, Strnad, Swnelin, Capizzi, Mike Ryan, Bruce Reid Schaefer, Robert Schechter, Marlowe Weisman, Mark Saraceni, Richard Stanley, Tom Minton, Grant Moran, Thomas Hart and Mark Seidenberg. Animation was handled by Walt Disney Television Animation Pty. Limited, Walt Disney Animation Japan Inc., Toon City Animation Inc., Kennedy Cartoons, Guimarares Productions, Moving Images International, Animal-ya (aka Animal House, now Eureka Animal), Tama Productions, Wang Film Productions Co. Ltd. (now Brilliant Pictures Group), Sunwoo Animation Co. Ltd., Jaime Diaz Producciones S.A., Pacific Rim Productions Inc., Jade Animation, Light Foot, Nakumara Productions, Studio CATS, Studios Fuga, Studio Robin, Takahashi Productions (now T2 Studio) and Unlimited Energee (later Energee Entertainment). The series’ music was composed by Mark Watters, John Given, Harvey Cohen, Carl Johnson and Thomas Richard Sharp

In 1995, the series won three Daytime Emmy Awards for “Outstanding Music Direction and Composition,” “Outstanding Film Sound Mixing,” and “Outstanding Film Sound Editing” while taking home the “Outstanding Film Sound Mixing” again in 1996. That year, the series ended as it began: with a direct-to-video film. Aladdin and the King of Thieves was inspired by Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves. Written by McCorckle and Schooley and directed by Stones, it introduced Cassim (John Rhys-Davies), Aladdin’s long-lost father and the titular king of thieves, and culminated in the long-delayed wedding of Aladdin and Jasmine with the ceremony attended by several characters from the series. It also marked the return of Williams to the role of Genie. Then-new Disney chairman Joe Roth initiated a public apology to Williams over the first film’s marketing, and Williams agreed to return to voice the Genie for the film after being amused by and riffing on some of the footage they showed him. All of Genie’s footage and Castellaneta’s recorded dialogue were scrapped and completely redone to fit Williams’ comedic styling. 

One of the Aladdin VHS tapes.

Aladdin was rerun on The Disney Channel from 1997 until 2000, and concurrently on Toon Disney from 1998 until 2008. Twelve VHS tapes, eight as Aladdin’s Arabian Adventures and four under the title Princess Collection – Jasmine’s Enchanted Tales, were released containing two episodes each between 1995 and 1996 in America, while ten VHS tapes were released in New Zealand between 1996 and 1997. Between 2004 and 2005, Disney Princess Stories volumes 1-3 each contained one episode of the series as did Disney Princess Party volume 2. Three episodes were released on the DVD Jasmine’s Enchanted Tales: Journey of a Princess. To date, the series has yet to see a full series release either physically or on streaming; however, it was available for purchase on Prime in Germany.

Hercules meets Aladdin.

In the following years, Aladdin, Jasmine, Abu and Carpet reunited for a crossover episode of Disney’s Hercules: The Animated Series in the 1999 episode “Arabian Night”. Meanwhile, Genie, still voiced by Williams for the final time, was appearing in a series of 5-minue educational shorts called Great Minds Think 4 Themselves that aired between programs during Disney’s One Saturday Morning programming block. In the Square Enix action role playing game series Kingdom Hearts, Aladdin, Abu, Iago, Carpet and Genie were all featured characters. Castellaneta reprised his role of Genie until he was replaced by Jim Meskimen in Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix. Jasmine, Abu, Iago, Rajah, Carpet and the Sultan (now voiced by Bennett) were featured in the direct-to-video feature Disney Princess Enchanted Tales: Follow Your Dreams in 2007. Marvel Comics published a series of Aladdin comics between 1994 and 1995 for eleven issues, and the series was also a featured comic in Disney Adventures magazine. Along with their toys based on the film, Mattel released a line of toys marked as being “Inspired by the TV series”. It largely consisted of Aladdin and Jasmine in alternate clothing, several transformations of Genie, Abis Mal and Merc in a mixture of figures and figurines.
