Princess Jasmine is a fictional character from Walt Disney Pictures’ Aladdin, the 31st animated feature film (1992). Jasmine is the Sultan’s feisty daughter, who has grown tired of her life of palace captivity, and is spoken by American actress Linda Larkin, with a singing voice provided by Filipina singer Lea Salonga. Despite an age-old rule requiring the princess to marry a prince in time for her birthday, Jasmine is determined to marry someone she loves for who he is rather than what he has.

Jasmine is based on Badroulbadour, a princess who appears in the One Thousand and One Nights folktale “Aladdin and the Magical Lamp,” directed by Ron Clements and John Musker with screenwriters Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio.

After removing Aladdin’s mother from the screenplay, the writers rewrote Jasmine into a stronger and more important heroine, using plot themes from the romantic comedy Roman Holiday (1953). Larkin was nearly fired from the film a few months after landing the part because Disney chief Jeffrey Katzenberg thought her voice was unsuitable for a princess. Still, Clements and Musker were able to persuade him differently.

Lea Salonga was discovered by casting director Albert Tavares and cast as Jasmine’s singing voice based on her performance in the musical Miss Saigon; this unusual casting choice made Jasmine the first Disney Princess with two separate actresses providing her speaking and singing voices.

Jasmine’s design is an eclectic mix of distinct sources, including an unidentified theme park tourist, Henn’s sister, and actress Jennifer Connelly, as animated by Mark Henn.

Unlike other Disney princesses, Jasmine appears in her film as a supporting character, playing the love interest. Her character journey has been contrasted negatively to those of her predecessors Ariel from The Little Mermaid (1989) and Belle from Beauty and the Beast (1991), although she has been lauded for her charm and chemistry with Aladdin. She is the sixth Disney Princess and the first non-European princess in the series and the first princess from the Middle East.

The character is credited with bringing ethnic variety to the Disney princess genre as a result of this. Following Aladdin, Jasmine appeared in the sequels The Return of Jafar (1994) and Aladdin and the King of Thieves (1996) and a television series and a Broadway musical adaptation of the film. For their contributions to the character, both Larkin and Salonga have been named Disney Legends. Naomi Scott performed the role in the 2019 live-action remake of the 1992 film.

Jasmine is based on the princess from the One Thousand and One Nights collection of Middle Eastern traditional tales, especially the story “Aladdin and the Magical Lamp.” While still creating music for The Little Mermaid (1989), lyricist Howard Ashman and composer Alan Menken started working on Aladdin, but the project was shelved in favor of working on Beauty and the Beast (1991).

However, as Beauty and the Beast approached completion, Aladdin was revived. Even though the princess in the original story is named Badroulbadour, the studio opted to rename her “Jasmine” after actress Jasmine Guy. In addition, the name was one of the most popular during the decade. Aladdin had two potential love partners in Ashman’s initial concept of the film: Jasmine and a “Judy Garland-y tomboy” whose romantic emotions for Aladdin were not returned by the hero.

Linda Woolverton finally penned a script based on the 1940 film The Thief of Baghdad, including a handmaiden for Jasmine (an concept that reappeared in the 2019 live-action film), who a pet tiger later replaced.
