From the day Star Wars Rebels was released, the younglings have kept thinking about how similar Aladdin and Ezra Bridger are! Here are five things that they both have in common:
1.They are pickpockets
Ezra Bridger and Aladdin both stole to survive. The difference? Ezra stole meiloorun and Aladdin stole bread.
2.They are orphans.
Ezra’s parents were taken away from him at the age of 7, and assumed dead (until later on when he finds out they really were alive and imprisoned in an imperial camp). They do pass away later though and he never gets the chance to reunite with them. Aladdin’s parents are not ever seen in the movie, but Aladdin does mention his mother’s death in a scene with Jasmine.
3.They live in an abandoned tower.
Ezra lived in an abandoned comm tower in the fields of Lothal and Aladdin lived in abandoned tower in the middle of Agrabah.
4.They have the same hair.
No explanation needed. It is the same.
5.They both leave behind their lives of crime.
Ezra leaves behind his life as a thief to join Kaanan Jarrus and his rebel crew to be trained in the ways of the force and become a Jedi . He later his saves his homeward from the clutches of the evil Empire. Aladdin gets a lamp and he marries Princess Jasmine and saves Agrabah from the evil clutches of Jafar.
Those are five similarities between the two characters! If those were not enough, here is a parody we created with the help of Taylor Gray, voice of Ezra Bridger to the Aladdin song “One Jump Ahead”! You can watch it here:
