Aladdin is an orphan living on the streets of the city of Agrabah, continually outwitting and avoiding local law enforcement. One day he meets a young girl--also hiding from the guards--who is actually Princess Jasmine, seeking to escape from a disagreement with her father the Sultan about her marriage. He gallantly conceals her, and promptly falls in love. Soon, the Grand Vizier Jafar divines that Aladdin represents the key to his plans, and tricks him into the mysterious Cave of Wonders. Aladdin finds an ornate lamp, and, accidentally comes face-to-face with a blue genie--ready and willing to grant him three wishes. Aladdin, with the help of his sidekicks -- a monkey named Abu and a flying carpet, seeks to win Jasmine's hand, defeat the evil Jafar and his vicious parrot, Iago, and save Agrabah. At the conclusion of his adventures, Aladdin learns that he is a prince where it truly matters most--on the inside
