Jasmine is the Arabic Princess from the 1992 Disney film Aladdin. Voiced by Linda Larkin and singing by Lea Salonga, Jasmine was the first Disney Princess to not be of European origin.
Appearance & Personality
Jasmine is a very beautiful young woman with a very slim figure, beautiful dark Arabian skin, wide dark brown eyes, and full red lips. She also has thick and lovely black hair tied into a stylized low ponytail with aqua elastics and also wears a blue headband with a sapphire set in a golden frame.
She wears many different outfits throughout the movie. The outfit she is most associated with is a turquoise bedlah outfit with long puffyharem pants and a crop top. She also sports large gold earrings, a golden choker, and gold slipper-like shoes. When she slips out into Agrabah, she’s wearing a brown robe with a light brown hijab.
Just like the other Disney Princesses, Jasmine is friends with an animal – Rajah the tiger. Rajah is very protective over Jasmine and loves her dearly.
Jasmine’s Main Characteristics:
- Down to earth
When she is first introduced, Princess Jasmine is a few days short of her 16th birthday. She is the daughter of the Sultan who has issued, by law, that she must choose a husband (a prince) to marry. She has a mind of her own and yearns for freedom just like most teenage girls. However, unlike most Disney princesses, Jasmine does not show much interest in finding a true love or a husband. Headstrong, self-confident and full of vigour, Princess Jasmine is not afraid of adventure. In fact, she is a very curious and very brave young princess who wants to see the world just as it is, not cooped up in any sort of palace. Though rich and powerful, she does not give herself airs and wishes to live a simple life.
