Jasmine from Disney's Aladdin is a Disney princess from Arabia, a rich princess who helps her father, The Sultan, run his kingdom. One day she will rule her father's kingdom and she wouldn't mind picking out a prince who will steal her heart – and not her father's money!
Marrying For Love
Most girls would prefer to marry someone they love, if they choose to get married at all. Jasmine, the black haired, Arabian princess of Disney's Aladdin, is no different. So when her father tries to arrange a marriage with her with princes she doesn't even know, Jasmine wants nothing to do with it! She knows how to stand up for herself and say 'no'!
Taste For Adventure
Jasmine loves her father, the Sultan, and her pet tiger, but she yearns to learn more about the world outside the palace walls. She dreams of what could be waiting for her out there. Rather than sit and wait to see what comes to her, she figures out a way to find for herself.
With no one to see her go, Jasmine sneaks out of the palace to discover the marketplace. Excitement is what she wants and new experiences, too, and she gets plenty of both!
Jasmine and Her Prince
When Prince Ali (Aladdin in disguise!) shows up at the palace and sweeps her off her feet and onto a magic carpet, she gets to see the world from a different point of view. When she realizes that she is in love with Prince Ali, she makes sure to let him know and protect him from the evil Jafar! Jasmine is a strong princess and will one day become a great queen.
While Jasmine doesn't care that she is a princess and has more money than she could ever use, Aladdin is pining away for the stuff. All he needed to do was wait for the movie to open in theaters! Disney's Aladdin made over $200 million dollars in the United States alone! This means that Aladdin brought in more money than any other animated film at the time.
The Magic Behind the Magic
Ever wonder how Disney's animators created that fantastic, rip roaring magic carpet ride through the Caves of Wonder? What about how magic carpet with its elaborate design rippling as Jasmine and Aladdin fly through the air? Or the cave with the tiger's head opening that magically responds to the jewel? A computer! Computers created all those action images that you love so much in Disney's Aladdin.
Disney Studios are famous for creating magical adventures for their princesses to enjoy – and they do it without the help of a magic Genie! Disney animators work hard to build their movies from story boards and sketches to coloring to computer animation to editing and completion. Jasmine is one of the famous Disney princesses and you can find her in Disney Princess Stories Volume 1: Stories From The Heart, Disney's Aladdin and the King of Thieves, and of course, the original, Disney's Aladdin!
