Aladdin

...A Comparison of the tale of “Aladdin and the Enchanted Lamp” and the Disney Movie Aladdin: A Cultural Study According to N. J. Dawood, the translator of The Thousand and One Nights, “Aladdin has been retold or presented to so many different generations all over the world that it can perhaps be rightly described as the most renowned story invented by man”. Interestingly enough, “Aladdin and the Enchanted Lamp” was not part of the original collection of stories that composed The Arabian Nights. No one knows exactly when a given story is originated, but it is obvious that some stories circulated orally for centuries before they actually were collected or written down. The story of Aladdin appeared for the first time in Antoine Galland’s (1646-1715) translation of the Thousand and One Nights, the first major European version. Before Galland, there was no known Arabic version of Aladdin and his lamp. The first Arabic version showed up after Galland’s version and very well could have been translations of Galland’s French version. One of the more recent and most popular versions of “Aladdin” was an animated feature produced in 1992 by Walt Disney Pictures. Aladdin made over $217 million in revenue in the United States, and over $504 million worldwide. Even though the American film and the medieval Arabian tale share common elements and are both plotted around a young impoverished boy named Aladdin, the moral lessons they offer differ in ways that can be described through the......

Aladdin, a Marxist View

...The original Aladdin is a folk tale composed by an unknown author during the period of the crusades. Aladdin, and many other famous works are gathered in a book full of these stories called, “The Thousand Nights and One Night.” Since this work is so old, and incorporated into such a vast book, no one can pinpoint exactly when and who wrote it. A couple pieces of information are for certain though. As far back as history is documented, the Islamic culture has had an extremely harsh class system. The struggle of classes in Islamic culture was most likely the reason for the writing of Aladdin, and the passing on of its lessons as well. Aladdin is more than just a children’s fairytale, as it is an informative work that depicts the struggle and persecution of the lower classes in Islamic society, especially when view through a Marxist literary lens. The tale begins by introducing a boy named Aladdin as a thief. In literary works, a thief is normally not portrayed as a hero unless the stealing is done for the common good of the proletariat, like Robin Hood (Carpenter, Prichard). In contrast, Aladdin steals due to his lack of economical assets because of his class standing, and thus, for the good of only himself. Only due to the title of the piece, and events that occur a little later in the piece, can we assume that he is in fact the hero of the story. For the introduction of the tale, though, he seems as though a lowly thief, who is an outcast in society, disliked by members of......

Aladdin and the Rings

...Aladdin and the Rings Fairy tales have been around for countless centuries, and their impact on story telling is still extremely influential to this day. The main morals that these tales first displayed is still what drives the plotlines of countless movies and books today. There is a large amount of these entertaining stories that owe credit to the original plots and morals of fairy tales. One fairy tail in particular that stands out when it comes to repeating plots and morals among today’s stories is Aladdin, more specifically Aladdin’s heroic qualities and his will to overcome adversary and obstacles. Aladdin is a folk tale that originated in the Middle East; it was included in the vast book of tales known as “The book of one Thousand and One Nights,” which is better known as “Arabian Nights.” The true origins of Aladdin are not precisely known, but some say a Frenchman wrote the tale in 1704, his name was Antoine Galland (Aladdin's origins likely European, and not Arabic). Many claim it is a possibility that Galland also took the tale and made it sound more Arabic, explaining why it was then put into “Arabian Nights.” (Aladdin's origins likely European, and not Arabic) Aladdin was also made into a film in 1992 by Walt Disney pictures, which altered the original story details to those of their liking for the production (IMDB). I believe that the plot of Aladdin and the morals it tries to convey are extremely similar to a particular series of books, which was......

The Gift of the Magi

...is not being able to afford a home, if that food. In the story “A Gift of the Magi” and the movie “Aladdin” the characters Della and Aladdin share similarities and differences.         The first similarity I realized between the story “A Gift of the Magi” and the movie “Aladdin” is that in both they have couples. Without these couples the story and movie wouldn’t be what they are. In the story “A Gift of the Magi”, the couple is Della and Jim. In the movie “Aladdin”, the couple is Aladdin and Jasmine. The difference between the two is one main character is a girl and the other is a boy. In the story “A Gift of the Magi”, Della is the main character. In the movie “Aladdin” the main character is Aladdin.         The second similarity I realized between the story “A Gift of the Magi” and the movie “Aladdin” is that both couples are in love. Both of these couples are in love with one another at some point in time. The difference between the two is one has been in love since the beginning and the other falls in love by the end. In the story “A Gift of the Magi”, the couple is in love from the beginning of the story all the way to the end. In the movie “Aladdin”, the couple falls in love throughout the story. Love is a key component for everything that happens in the story/movie.         The third similarity I realized between the story “A Gift of the Magi” and the movie “Aladdin” is that both characters give up something so that another character could receive something......

Aladdin and Its Morals

...Aladdin is one of the tales in the book One Thousand and One Arabian Nights. There are several moral lessons in the story. The main moral lesson on Aladdin is that its best to be yourself. Greatness and strength comes from within, not from without. Its not whats on the outside that' count; what is important is what's on the inside. The moral of the original Middle-Eastern tale 'Arabian Nights' is that greatness and strength comes from within, not from without. This is demonstrated by Aladdin's bravery and intelligence despite his humble upbringing. In Disney's animated musical version of the story, the writers updated this theme to a single phrase, calling Aladdin a 'diamond in the rough'. There are many differences between the movie and the original tale of Aladdin, because the filmmakers believed that the original had an inappropriate moral message. And I have to agree with this for at least two reasons. First, Aladdin never tells the princess who he really is; he becomes a prince thanks to the jinni, but he never considers telling his wife about who he was before that. The original story doesn’t even mention this. Lying and pretending to be someone else is, indeed, something that should not be promoted in a children’s movie.Then, in the original story I really couldn’t stand the princess, Badr al-Budur. She is naïve, has no personality and no opinion, she does what she is told to, and never asks questions. She is so easily tricked, that she almost gets Aladdin......

The Adventures of Aladdin

...Once upon a time . . . a widow had an only son whose name was Aladdin. They were very poor and lived from hand to mouth, though Aladdin did what he could to earn some pennies, by picking bananas in faraway places. One day, as he was looking for wild figs in a grove some way from the town, Aladdin met a mysterious stranger. This smartly dressed dark-eyed man with a trim black beard and a splendid sapphire in his turban, asked Aladdin an unusual question: "Come here, boy," he ordered. "How would you like to earn a silver penny?" "A silver penny!" exclaimed Aladdin. "Sir, I'd do anything for that kind of payment." "I'm not going to ask you to do much. Just go down that manhole. I'm much too big to squeeze through myself. If you do as I ask, you'll have your reward." The stranger helped Aladdin lift the manhole cover, for it was very heavy. Slim and agile as he was, the boy easily went down. His feet touched stone and he carefully made his way down some steps . . . and found himself in a large chamber. It seemed to sparkle, though dimly lit by the flickering light of an old oil lamp. When Aladdin's eyes became used to the gloom, he saw a wonderful sight: trees dripping with glittering jewels, pots of gold and caskets full of priceless gems. Thousands of precious objects lay scattered about. It was a treasure trove! Unable to believe his eyes, Aladdin was standing dazed when he heard a shout behind him. "The lamp! Put out the flame and bring me the lamp!" Surprised and......

Aladdin and Social Inequalities

...The 1992 Disney film Aladdin represents an analysis of the social inequalities. Human society is demonstrated to be discriminatory, and unequal. Society ranks individuals consciously into certain class statuses such as being rich or poor. The class status acts as a barrier or a wall, preventing the individuals from escaping the social norms of what class they were placed in. Every individual is placed into one of the classes through appearances, skills and wealth. The individual is given a title and they must then comply with the norms according to the class they have been assigned to. There is a clear distinction between the two class status that separates one from another. The film demonstrates an understanding of how each class are represented in the eyes of society. There are limitations to each class, society creates norms for people and classes are restricted to them. Each class has their own roles in society and are bound to specific social and legal rules. Aladdin is not just a fairytale story for kids, but shows the struggles and delightful life of both upper and lower class. Human nature has created the hierarchy of social class, institutions and structures. These social entities have forced human society to separate themselves from one another. There is a representation of a large gap between the classes in Aladdin. In the city of Agrabah, the distinction between the upper and lower class has pushed society with the battle between poverty and crime. The......

Aladdin

...Aladdin Fairytale’s have been around for a long time. People would tell one person and that person would tell another. The stories were altered a bit from each story being told. Finally, the tales were published in books, and soon seen on the big screen by Disney. Most of the introductions start out with once upon a time, many many years ago, and other sayings. Whoever you are, you have heard of a couple fairytales. People believe that telling these tales will teach lessons to their kids. I believe that Aladdin has the best moral for teaching. Aladdin is poor, and he does not have any family or close friends except for his pet monkey. For this reason he is a people person, so he can survive in life. Being handsome and charming helps too. He has dark black shiny hair, big gorgeous eyes, and a smile that shines every time he talks. Aladdin's lifestyle is basic. Therefore when the magic genie arrives with wishes, Aladdin is overwhelmed.. Aladdin getting the princess is the only thing on his mind. Nothing gets in the way of that. Princess Jasmine is rather underestimated. We understand Jasmine’s character as trapped and enclosed and we realize how she begs for freedom and the liberty to live her own life. She disguises herself and goes into the marketplace thus saved by Aladdin. When Aladdin brings her to his home, she shows us she is capable of figuring things out for herself and being rather clever....

Aladin

...11/08/15 What the Cover of Aladdin really tells us. What is the purpose of all movie covers? To grab a certain audience’s attention and make them as interested as possible in that movie so they feel a need to buy it. Disney’s covers sole purpose is to attract a younger audience. They are constantly using different symbols, colors and images that appeal to that young audience. Disney is very well known for their creations of magical worlds and faraway places that children only dream of, and they use that to their advantage by putting a those images on the covers of their movies. By doing this they are almost telling the whole story before anyone have even seen it. They use the concepts of love, adventure, and good triumphing over evil to automatically attract the eyes of young children. Disney uses these symbols and images to create those concepts so at that moment a little girl or boy who sees the cover of that movie immediately begin to beg their parents to get them that movie. In this paper I will be analyzing the movie cover of Disney’s Aladdin. To see how Disney uses their covers you have to know what story is being told. In movie Aladdin, Aladdin is poor boy who lives on the streets but dreams of living in the royal palace. One day in the market he meets a girl and who he instantly falls in love with, and shortly after finds out that she is the Princess of Agrabath. Knowing that Jasmine and he could never be together unless he was a prince, Aladdin gets the help of......

Social Mobility Is an Unrealistic Fantasy

...! The Unrealistic Fantasy The Disney movie Aladdin demonstrates that social mobility is just an unrealistic fantasy to be achieved, by the way the film shows Aladdin’s opportunities— street rat vs. prince, how the Genie acts as welfare for Aladdin, and through the lack of privileges that Aladdin experienced throughout the movie. There is no doubt that Aladdin portrays the poverty victims in Agrabah, the Genie represents as the Government, and Jasmine corresponds with the rich. All of these factors creates an impractical real life scenario of jumping the social classes the way Aladdin did. First of all, there is no surprise that Aladdin is treated very different from the beginning of the movie, to when he becomes a prince. One of the very first examples you can see this being displayed is during the song “One Jump Ahead”. In this scene Aladdin is chased around the city’s streets of Agrabah by guards because he can’t afford to pay for the food he stole. Based on the ragged clothes he wore, with patches in his pants, the town labels him as riffraff, a street rat, and a scoundrel, just like the lyrics in the song. However, when he is a prince, Aladdin gets a grand parade entering the city on the way to the palace. He was treated different by the 
 Norman,2 people because of the way he was dressed and how he was presented. He no longer had on old ragged cloths, and now wore an expensive wardrobe fit for a prince. The crowed did not mock him nor call him names...

Aladdin

...Alaa Elsayed Intro to Theater Professor- Roxane Revon Aladdin Review Aladdin is a musical based on the 1992 Disney animated film of the same name with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Howard Ashman, Tim Rice and Chad Beguelin. Beguelin also wrote the book. The musical includes three songs written for the film by Ashman but not used there and four new songs written by Menken and Beguelin. The story follows the familiar tale of how a poor young man discovers a genie in a lamp and uses his wishes to marry the princess that he loves and to thwart the Sultan's evil Grand Vizier. If you’re granted three wishes to make during Disney’s “Aladdin” you’ll definitely want to use one to discover how the musical’s creative genies pull off the magic-carpet ride in the second act. Seriously, it’s amazing. Hands down one of the best Broadway shows I've seen. The theater itself is majestic and as soon as the show starts, you are whisked away to another world. All the costumes, light displays, scene props were of beautiful colors and saying that the magic carpet ride scene blew me away would be an understatement. The theater itself is absolutely gorgeous and beautifully timeless. The details of the theater and especially its ceiling are just fascinating and transported me back to when it was first built in the late 1800s to early 1900s... I almost felt like I would see Abraham Lincoln when I looked up at the balconies! Historical and stunning! My only real "complaints" was that I......
