Whenever Jafar calls Aladdin “Prince Abu-bu”, no matter how evil his voice sounds, I always lose it.
I wish Disney would just get rid of the Disney Princess franchise and market films instead of the characters. Sure, Pocahontas and Brave probably can’t support their own franchises, but I think it’s a sacrifice I’d be willing to make for more Aladdin and Genie merchandise.
I saw a tutorial on how to make a pompom rug and all I could think of was how I could make a replica, or at least a minimalist design that is similar to the flying carpet from Aladdin.
People saying you can only interpret Aladdin and Jasmine as Arab are wrong. The Aladdin movie is an orientalist mix of a few different cultures! The most prominent cultures in the movie are Arab, Indian and Persian. The original 1001 Nights came from Indians and Persians, but was written down by an Arab (and a few stories may have been added). This also makes casting people of the correct ethnic group for the live action movie pretty difficult, since there isn’t a set ethnic group in the film.
