The "Aladdin" Gamble

Entertainment Weekly 1992
Here's a great article
on the insights
of the Aladdin process

Cut! Song Out!

Here's some great comparisons
All in all,
I think this was great insight,
to the whole process,
of getting Aladdin off the ground!

I remember that article. That was a time when everyone anticipated the next Disney film, and no one heard of Pixar

I still have this issue of Entertainment Weekly--it's nice to know that I'm not the only person that kept a copy.

What was so interesting to me about Aladdin was how far along production got when they decided to redesign Aladdin himself! You can still see the skinny, geekier version of Aladdin in some shots of "A Friend Like Me."

Like Tom, I vividly remember when the newest Disney animated film was something a large amount of folks were excited about.
