He gallantly conceals her, and promptly falls in love. Soon, the Grand Vizier Jafar divines that Aladdin represents the key to his plans, and tricks him into the mysterious Cave of Wonders. Aladdin finds an ornate lamp, and, accidentally comes face-to-face with a blue genie--ready and willing to grant him three wishes. Aladdin, with the help of his sidekicks--a monkey named Abu and a flying carpet--seeks to win Jasmine's hand, defeat the evil Jafar and his vicious parrot, Iago, and save Agrabah.
