This Aladdin Minifigure is based on the 1992 movie with the same name. He has a very tough childhood, and at 16 joins the circus, and a few years later (at least in this story) he is being chased on the streets of a Middle East city when he runs into the princess and falls in love.
I like this minifigure, but I wish it came with a little pet monkey. Also, for some reason I prefer my fictional Disney prince and princess characters to be minidolls instead of the minifigure. That’s just my preference and what looks good in my Lego city.
The Aladdin Minifigure from the LEGO Disney Series 1 appears in these sets:

Aladdin, as a character comes from the Arabian Nights, or the ‘One Thousand and One Nights’ told by Scheherazade (who was a woman by the way). He has a typical rags to riches story. What I find interesting after reading the original story is that it is set in China, not the middle east.
- Aladdin is only 18 when we meet him in the movie.
- He has a pet monkey named Abu
