  • 2. Nowadays, popularities of animated movies among the teenager increases as the animation of the movies are becoming more vivid and attractive. So it is no doubt that there will have very strong competition between those animated movies to get more attention from the teenager. I as a teenager, I am also a part of the animated movies lovers since I was 5 years old. For me, I would like to compare the similarities of my two favourite old animated movies, which is The Lion King that produced in 1994 and Aladdin that produced in 1992. I chose this two animated movies as they gave me the same sensitivity and feeling which attractive me a lot after I watch them. Basically, The Lion King tells us the story of Simba, a young lion who succeed his father, Mufasa, as a king and the Aladdin isbased on the story in Arab folktale of Aladdin and the magic lamp from One Thousand and One Nights. The first similarities that I had found in both animated movies are the adventure they had gone through in the stories. In The Lion King movie, the lion cub, Simbawas teaching by his father, Mufasa the responsibilities of being a king and the circle of life. However, Mufasa’s younger brother, Scar is jealous and resentful of Simba so he tricked Simba various times in order to kill samba as he wanted to step forward to become a king. So Simbawas going through a lot of fighting and killing which made him in danger until Simba found his father’s body in gorge. For the Aladdin movie, Aladdin ordered by Jafar, Grand Vizier to the Sultan of Agrabah to enter the Cave of Wonder to retrieve a magical oil lamp that containing a Genie but he failed and he was arrested for thievery by Sultan. Aladdin was also trapped into the cave when they tried to escape from the cave that was collapsing while he tried to retrieve the oil lamp for Jafar who tried to kill him for the second times.
  • 3. So it shows that Aladdin had also gone through the adventure life which is similar to The Lion King movie. Then, the next similarities that had shown in both animated movies are loyalty of love. In the Lion King movie, Nala as the best friend of Simba since they are young and they had gone through the adventure life which made their relationship tighter and closer. When they grew up, they fall in love in each other and Nala agreed to help him fight when Simba realized that he can no longer run from his past. After the war end, Simbalooks down happily at his kingdom with Nala who already became the important partner of his life. In the Aladdin movie, Aladdin and Sultan’s daughter, Jasmine began their friendship when she flees to Agrabah’s market place as she frustrated with her life in the palace. Jasmine was heartbroken when Jafar lied to her that Aladdin was already executed. They were falling in love with each other and Aladdin hope Genie make him as a prince in order to be legally able to court Jasmine. After the frustration he had met, he had finally married with Jasmine after the law had been changed by the Sultan. So the love stories of both movies make me feel very romantic and touching. Next, sympathy and kindness of the main character had shown in both movies. In The Lion King movies, at the pride land, Scar tauntedSimba over his "part" in Mufasa's death, but when Scar pushedSimba to the edge of Pride Rock, he admited that he killed Mufasa. Then Simba jumped to Scar’s back and forced him to reveal the truth to other lions and Scar attempted to escape but failed. Then, Scar cornered by Simba at the top of Pride Rock and he beg Simba for mercy and saying that he is one of his family members. Simba felt sympathy with Scar and spared his life commanded him to forever leave the
  • 4. Pride Land. For the Aladdin movie, while Aladdin was trapped in the cave, he was unexpectedly released Genie who revealedhe will grant Aladdin three wishes from the lamp. When Aladdin contemplating his wishes, Genie admitted he would wish for freedom and Aladdin promised to free Genie as his last wish. In the end, Aladdin decided to keep his promises and wish for Genie’s freedom. So the main character had shown their sympathy to let their enemy or friend freedom. The last similarities of both animated movies are the main character of both movies became the lord of their kingdom which has the happy ending of the movies. In The Lion King movies, Simba had been trained to become a king since he was young. In the way of being a king, he met some of the cruel characterwho tricked him in order to grab the king throne from Simba. Fortunately, he did not give up and succeed to become a king after he defeated his enemies in the battle. In the Aladdin movie, Aladdin was a civilian in his country who tried to become a prince in order to marry with Jasmine. He knew that the dream is hard to be achieved but with the help of the Genie he was successfully married with Jasmine and became a king of Aragbah. In both movies, the two main characters had succeeded to become a king to their country. Last but not least, there are some similarities that I had found between these two movies that inspired me a lot in the way of being succeed in my studies so it is no doubt that I had learnt something from the movies.
