About the author
Top reviews from other countries
It's a short story based off of when Aladdin and Jasmine go on their iconic magic carpet ride together. They do refer to some earlier events from the film, but they give enough information so that you're not completely lost as to how they got to this point (and they make a few references to events that I *believe* is exclusive to the live action version but I won't be able confirm that until I see the actual film).
Overall I really liked it! I could almost see this being a spin-off in its own way, and it doesn't do anything to contradict the original story as far as I could tell. I almost wish we could somehow see this story told in another visual medium. But if you're interested in other stories within the Aladdin universe (especially if you have younger kids also interested in Aladdin), you really can't go wrong!
Saeed's plot tells the story from Prince Ali and Princess Jasmine's perspective.
