Aladdin lives in Peking with his brother Wishee Washee and his mother Widow Twankey, the owner of the local laundry, where she struggles to make ends meet.

Aladdin however has bigger dreams, where he hopes to make his fortune Evil Abanazar also has a dream, to become the ruler of the universe. He is aware of a lamp that lies deep within a cave and has magical powers. To obtain this lamp the cave must be entered by a person pure of heart. Abanazar hatches a plan to make Aladdin believe he is he's long lost uncle and sends him into the cave. Abanazar grows impatient about not owning the lamp straight away and seals the cave with Aladdin inside.

With the help of a Slave of the Ring and Genie of the Lamp. Aladdin is transported back to Peking where his dreams are realised.
