Disney's Aladdin universe is based on various stories from One Thousand and One Nights. It was first made into a film, then, in typical Disney fashion, it was pushed into every possible conceivable form of media.

Personal

I remember seeing an advertisement for the animated film and thinking, "sheesh, another Disney cartoon?" Didn't they just release The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast? I didn't see the film in theaters, but my friend Kevin got it on VHS shortly after it was released, and I watched it over at his house. I instantly loved it and begged my mother to buy it for me. Once I got my own copy, I watched it over and over again until I had most of the film memorized. I remember being hugely disappointed by The Return of Jafar, and not very impressed by the TV series either. However, I did really like Aladdin and the King of Thieves. Despite my love of the film, I played practically nothing of the video games as a child, and, as an adult, I don't find them very interesting. After seeing how awful the live action film looked in trailers, I didn't bother to watch it either.
