Review by Logan
As much as we have tended as a culture to love stories about people in places of royalty, we also love stories about the poor and the downtrodden. We can relate to them, to a certain extent, and when we see them succeed, it tells us that we can succeed as well. So naturally, Disney decided in 1992 to combine both of these elements in Aladdin.
The basic story is familiar to a lot of people. A street rat known as Aladdin falls in love with the princess Jasmine, is commissioned by the megalomaniac Jafar in disguise to retrieve a magical lamp, which Aladdin then uses to become a prince, and thereby attempt to court and marry the beautiful Jasmine.
