When Aladdin is introduced initially, he is 18 years old. He never received a formal education, and has only learned by being on the streets of Agrabah. He steals to survive, making him a sort of Robin-Hood type thief.
Aladdin is portrayed as clever, and ultimately a good-hearted person. Like most Disney male protagonists he is a brave young man who seeks to win the affection of many other characters, which demonstrates his insecurity. He can be selfish and indignant at times, which is shown through the wishes he makes. He is not above lying and stealing, but never with evil intentions, but in order to survive. The biggest difference from the norm is that, unlike most youthful Disney heroes, he's a doer rather than a passive character.
Aladdin, sculpted by Dusty Horner is Limited to Production Year 2009 and scheduled for a September 2009 release.
