【tdr0060】A hidden character in “Aladdin”?


The Disney’s animated feature film “Aladdin”, made based on the folktale of “Aladdin and the magic lamp” from “One Thousand and One Nights”, was released on November 25, 1992 in the United States (on August 7, 1993 in Japan). It achieved No. 1 annual video sales in the U.S. and Japan (U.S.: 24 million videos; Japan: 2.2 million videos for sales (not rental) in 1993).

The film’s attraction lies not just in the romance between Aladdin and Princess Jasmine, but also in adorable supporting characters, such as Genie of the Lamp, magic carpet, Abu and other unique characters, who play their important role.

One of the characters is the Sultan, who is the ruler of Agrabah and the heroine Jasmine’s father. He is a lovable character who loves animals and playing toys, though he is a little unreliable as a king. Please look closely at the toy figures among his collection.

There is a scene where he is carefully stacking his figures. Among these, there is a certain Disney character.

That is the Beast from “Beauty and the Beast”, sitting casually in the fourth row from the top, among the camel, hippopotamus and goat figures.

When watching “Aladdin” next time, why don’t you try to find the Beast?
