Right from the original, Aladdin had an odd system of characters, from talking parrot to flying magic carpet. The 2019 film version continues to expand this system by adding some new characters. Iranian American comedian Nasim Pedrad appeared in the role of Dalia, Jasmine’s witty and loyal maid. Actor Billy Magnussen plays the idiot Anders prince. Anders’ attempt to flirt with Jasmine was unsuccessful, but gave Aladdin a lot of funny scenes.
