first letter → a favorite character: Aladdin
I love this movie but how does no one notice that Aladdin doesn’t actually seem to have anything more to him? Like, what is the more that is there? The fact that he’s not hungry for money and power?
Aladdin went hungry so that children could have at least something to eat. He saved them from being trampled. He was the diamond in the ruff that could enter the Cave of Wonders. He was surrounded by gold and jewels, things that could make his starvation and poverty go away in an instant, and he didn’t even consider taking anything but the lamp. Aladdin was willing to give up the girl of his dreams and a cushy life as a prince just to keep his promise to Genie and set him free.
It’s not that he wasn’t hungry for money and power, but that he valued his morals and friendship more than he valued a better life for himself.
I’d say he’s a lot more than just a street rat.
