The story of Aladdin is one of the most familiar narratives in all of literature, a classic ‘rags to riches’ tale featuring a young hero who has to learn an important lesson; an exotic setting; a good healthy dose of magic; a beautiful heroine; and an evil villain (or two, depending on which version of the story you follow).In this episode I’ll discuss the differences between Disney’s “Aladdin” and “Aladdin or His Magical Lamp” as told by Queen Scheherazade in the original “One Thousand and One Nights”, telling each story side by side.
