This 1992 feature animation is one of Walt Disney’s later releases, also part of the Disney Renaissance period like Beauty and the Beast. 

Aladdin is based on an Arabic folktale in a collection of Middle-Eastern folktales called One Thousand and One Nights

Princess Jasmine, much like Rapunzel, feels trapped, except by her princess duties and not a tall tower. So, she escapes and bumps into street urchin, Aladdin. 

Her prison of choice? A gigantic fortress protected by the guards of Agrabah. You’ll be surprised to find out her home is a huge attraction in India as well.
