Aladdin – Jaanbaaz Ek Jalwe Anek (2007–2009), an Indian fantasy television series based on the story of Aladdin that aired on Zee TV, starring Mandar Jadhav in the title role of Aladdin.Aaj Ka Aladdin ( Today's Aladdin) is a 1935 Indian Hindi-language film by Nagendra Majumdar. It is a modern retelling of the folktale. [35] Despite being whitewashed (almost literally) for the 1992 Disney film, Aladdin is not some goody-two-shoes hero, and is far more interesting than many protagonists of other well-known fairy tales. He begins the story as a bit of a scamp, without ambition or loyalty to his parents, and is taken in by the first evil magician’s ruse and his promise to make the boy rich. Alladin and the Wonderful Lamp is a 1957 Indian fantasy film by T. R. Raghunath. Based on the story of Aladdin, it was simultaneously filmed in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi with Akkineni Nageshwara Rao portraying the title character.

Retrieved 2 January 2019. Nights ( Les 1001 nuits), a 1990 French-Italian film with Catherine Zeta-Jones, Stéphane Freiss and Vittorio Gassman, loosely based on Sherazade's and Aladdin's stories. The traditional Aladdin pantomime is the source of the well-known pantomime character Widow Twankey (Aladdin's mother). In pantomime versions, changes in the setting and story are often made to fit it better into "China" (albeit a China situated in the East End of London rather than medieval Baghdad), and elements of other Arabian Nights tales (in particular Ali Baba) are often introduced into the plot. One version of the "pantomime Aladdin" is Sandy Wilson's musical Aladdin, from 1979.

The Disney's Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular musical stage show ran at Disney California Adventure from January 2003 to January 10, 2016. [28] Since its appearance in The One Thousand and One Nights, the tale has integrated into oral tradition. Scholars Ton Deker and Theo Meder located variants across Europe and the Middle East. [19] So Aladdin sets off, unsure of how he will ever recover the pavilion and his wife. Then, as he is thinking, he rubs the magic ring he still wears, and the genie of the ring appears. The genie is unable to override the genie of the lamp and so cannot restore the pavilion to Aladdin, but he agrees to transport Aladdin to the place where the pavilion now stands.

But this is partly explained by the setting of the story of ‘Aladdin and the Magic Lamp’ – although where that setting is precisely supposed to be has had critics and anthologists scratching their heads for some time. The story states that Aladdin lives in China, although ‘Aladdin’ sounds more like an Arabic name than Chinese, and the other characters in the story also have Arabic names. Huet, G. (1918).

However, although the sorcerer is dead, he has a brother who is even more evil and intent on avenging his brother’s death. So he disguises himself as Fatimah, a holy woman, concealing his beard behind a veil and gaining the trust of the princess, who wishes such a holy woman to come and live in her and Aladdin’s pavilion with them. He then tells the princess that the pavilion would be perfect if only they had a Roc’s egg hanging from the ceiling.Nun, Katalin; Stewart, Dr Jon (2014).

Agrabah ‘the city of mystery and enchantment’ is, in fact, a fictional city imagined for Disney’s Aladdin film (1992). The creators drew inspiration from the city of Baghdad in Iraq and then gave the city a fictional name. Disney also drew on the Indian city of Agra’s Taj Mahal for the setting of the story’s royal palace. Characters in the Original Aladdin Disney’s spectacular West End musical, ALADDIN, is now touring the UK and Ireland until January 2025.
