Aladdin Based On Tom Cruise


Initially Aladdin was to be a 13 year old character. However this changed to 18 and thats when his character profile needed some inspiration.

Parts of his physique were based on teen idols and movie actors at the time. Initially it was Michael J Fox from Back To The Future who was to be used as the character profile.

Glen Keane, the supervising animator, then decided to change the physique profile by using Tom Cruise as a base.

Keane was also responsible for basing Aladdin’s trousers on MC Hammer’s pants.
