    The Disney movie, “Aladdin” is full of colorful, funny characters singing catchy songs as they fly around on a magic carpet. It’s a high-flying tale of romance, magic, and adventure. But what’s the real story behind this classic folktale?

    There has been a lot of buzz surrounding Disney’s remake of the animated story of “Aladdin.” But will Disney learn from the mistakes that they made in the past? This story has been around for centuries. But you will be astonished to learn how the story was created in the first place. It seems “Aladdin,” and all of the “Arabian Nights,” or “One Thousand and One Nights,” folktales were told as a desperate attempt to save the author’s life. We were able to uncover some pretty messed up facts about the real story of “Aladdin.” You’re not going to believe racist song lyrics Disney was forced to change after the animated film’s release.

    Um... Jasmine wasn't supposed to be the Disney version of Shahrazad. Jasmine was based on one of the characters in one of Shahrazad's 1001 stories 😁

    +That_Thot_Addy _ Nope. The official English transliteration is Scheherazade. Her name is Shahrazad in Arabic, Shehrazad in Persian, and Scheherazade in English.And again, ethnicity is irrelevant. The fact is that Scheherazade is a fictional character. This is well-documented by historians across the world, including Arab and Persian historians.

    +Fire Water Well I was talking about the official English translation. Just because you see something on the internet doesnt mean anything. Your probably not even Arab or Persian and just looked this stuff up on the internet whereas other grew up learning this stuff

    2.4 million subs, and only 20k views? That does not sound right.

    I'm arab and one thousands and one nights is a classic in all of the middle east it has a lot of versions yet somehow people know all, it's like a bed time story, and many remakes of it were made into t.v shows

  • BumbleBee Tuna  (1 day ago))

    It reminds me of Grimm's Fairy Tales.

  • Z Influencer  (May 15, 2019))

    Noura Mohamed Scheherazade was a beautiful, well-read and intelligent young woman who was a gifted storyteller, weaving stories with spiritual and moral lessons for her listeners. Following her marriage to the king, on their wedding night, she captivated him with a story that went on late into the night, causing the king to allow her a stay of execution in order to finish her story the following evening. The clever Scheherazade continued to weave ever more fantastic and adventure-filled stories, each n...

    Aladdin wasn't based on what happened to Shahrazad. Aladdin was based off of one of her *STORIES* 🙄 Also the story of Shahrazad was fictional story based 0n real events that were written by some Persian women.

    You mean shahrazadشهرزاد. الف ليله و ليله

  • Khayria Tahir  (May 13, 2018))

    This entire video is inaccurate. The story of the lady married to the man is actually a part of the book one thousand and one nights it is a fictional story narrated to connect the stories in the book to eachother. The stories themselves were old indian, arabic and Persian tales gathered by translators researchers and authors over centuries. @TheThing please take the time to research your content before you misinform hundreds.

    +Lina Ed you don't even read the book

  • Mr.banana 2000  (Mar 18, 2019))

    Nah. One Thousand and One Nights is a collection of Middle Eastern folk tales compiled in Arabic during the Islamic Golden Age. Perhaps Persian (since they were old trading partners) but certainly not Indian.

  • Laura Haber  (May 22, 2018))

    Scheherazade ISN'T the orginal author of these stories. She's not even real! She's the made up character who serves as our narrator in the book, which allows all the tales to tie together.

    The merchant wanted to cut jasmine's hand because she took the apple and did not pay. Thieves get their hand cut off

  • ALLmasked  (May 1, 2019))

    it was inaccurate because the first thing a decent arab merchant would do is ask "where is your man" to blame him. after he then call the authorities to the investigate the incident. besides punishment would not been carried because authorities would check her claim of being the sultan's daughter and thus no cutting of hands would occur.

    +Katarina M I understand what you're saying, but in my opinion that only futher proves my own point. Why is Europe falling right now today? Because they let Islam back in. Before that, they let the Jews in. Jews and Muslims don't get along so now Europe has become the new battle grounds for their war. And it's all because Christians seemingly don't want to be in charge of their own countries anymore. I know all about the Clintons and have a personal grudge against Hillary myself due to her own actions ...
