Aladdin a street urchin (Scott Weinger) vies for the love of a beautiful princess (Linda Larkin), where he uses a genie’s (Robin Williams) magic power to make himself off as a prince in order to marry her. What makes this one of the best animated classic films it’s because of the Score. Robin Williams is so good in it. He’s hilarious. This film isn’t just for kids but for the whole family.
Lyricist Howard Ashman first pitched the idea, and the screenplay went through!
It went through three drafts before then-Disney Studios president Jeffrey Katzenberg agreed to its production. The animators based their designs on the work of caricaturist Al Hirschfeld, and computers were used for both finishing the artwork and creating some animated elements. The musical score was written by Alan Menken and features six songs with lyrics written by both Ashman and Tim Rice, who took over after Ashman’s death.
Aladdin is the 31st Disney animated feature film
It was the fourth produced during the Disney film era known as the Disney Renaissance. It was directed by John Musker and Ron Clements, and is based on the Arab-style folktale of the same name from One Thousand and One Nights and the French interpretation by Antoine Galland. The voice cast features Scott Weinger, Robin Williams, Linda Larkin, Jonathan Freeman, Frank Welker, Gilbert Gottfried and Douglas Seale.
