All of those characters' names are arabic which now use by muslims
Sultan did say "Allah" when he talking to Jasmine
There are many arabic script on the wall of indoor and outdoor of palace
In TV series, there is one king from other state, he was called Mohammed
It is enough evidence that they are muslims and arabians.
As for Princess Jasmine, I never understand why Disney Company design her as Harem type which most women wore like this in the past at Islamic Golden Era were slaves of Kings. Princess is not a slave but a daughter of King. So I thought to design proper princess look.
Though I love this film, it is my favorite movie.
Plus I myself figured a princess should dress classier than Jasmine did.
Ooo, that's a pretty outfit. ^_^
(hm... though, Jasmine would probably quickly take off the hat and blue jacket thing if she could. Jasmine's just weird like that. Maybe she wore what she did in the movie because she kept taking off her clothes. ^_^" )
wait never mind, that is why, actually.
But seriously, accuracy! fuck yea!
but if not, it's a good job.
When I first saw jazz..Granted she as cute clothing haha..
Although, I gotta point out, Disney isn't always accurate with any of their stuff...Especially of their classic tales.... The real stories are much more brutal then how Disney portrays them to be...
The Disney film is more-or-less a remix of that film, merging the prince and the thief characters, and shuffling the role of sidekick (and the name Abu) to a monkey.
Of course, had I known the tripe that Disney was going to come up with for Jasmine in more recent years (Enchanted Tales anyone?) I would have been counting my blessings.
This is the greatest outfit design I've every seen,I really love it!
Amazing job,my little brother!
I kinda thought that same way about it...
but I also understand the COMMERCiALized motives too.
However I do in fact agree with you...I also DO NOT think that
Disney was trying to achieve REALism and I do not think that their motive was to stay TRUE to the original Persian culture...I think that they were trying to Achieve a FALSE sense of reality.
They were trying to prey on American's "stupidity"...Everyone has a Universial attraction to Harem costumes & the 60's tv show "I Dream of Genie"...Although the Disney company trys to portray a FALSE sense of "pureness" & "wholesomenes" they ARE NOT.
They are very ruthless company & Entrepreneurially they are TYRANTS only after one thing and one thing ONLY
SLUTTiness makes THEM more money than RESPECTFUL does.
But although everything that I have said is HOW they think.
I still agree with you...they should have not made their story so misleading & unhonest.
I think they painted an untraditional picture for Americans.
