Made by Lotte Reiniger in 1926, ''Die Abenteuer des Prinzen Achmed'' is the world’s oldest surviving feature-length animated film, pre-dating ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'' by a full decade. Based on legends from ''Literature/TheArabianNights'', it tells the story of the travels of Prince Achmed, who is tricked by an evil magician into riding a flying horse that takes him to distant magical lands. He falls in love with ([[ValuesDissonance and kidnaps]]) Princess Pari Banu, and must fight to return home with her in time to stop his sister, Princess Dinarsade, from marrying the evil magician. Dinarsade's former husband Aladdin (of the magic lamp fame) and a helpful witch who is the magician's arch nemesis join him on his quest.

* IncestSubtext: Might be a ValuesDissonance thing, but a scene from early on in the movie will raise an eyebrow or two - when Achmed protects his sister Dinarzade from the sorcerer. They proceed to stare at each other intensely, with Dinarzade carressing Achmed's cheek.
