Players will be able to journey through the enchanted city of Agrabah dressed up as classic favourites like Aladdin, Princess Jasmine, Iago, Jafar and Abu in the adventurous world of Disney Universe, the first video game that brings together characters and worlds inspired by both animated and live action films from Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios and Walt Disney Pictures.  

Players will be able to suit up as Aladdin, Jasmine and other timeless characters from the movie as they navigate through the mystical Cave of Wonders collecting Scarabs to fit into a statue puzzle, avoiding falling sand, and jumping across rising platforms to complete the level. They’ll use gems to complete the mission while keeping clear of boulders, lava and spiked platforms, all in an effort to win a final battle against the evil Jafar.

The “Aladdin”world joins other fun and exciting Disney Universe environments, including the recently announced “Pirates of the Caribbean”world, as well as environments based on Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland,” Disney’s animated classic “The Lion King ,” and Disney•Pixar’s hits “Monsters, Inc .” and “WALL•E.”
