Ilia Kulik skates on “Aladdin”

During the previous two weeks the Euro champs figure skating where held in Warsaw, Poland and broadcasted live by Eurosport. Not that I’m a fan but I do enjoy watching it now and then. I admire specially the daring and hard curs the pairs beating every celebirty.

It ties indirectly in with the ice champions performing tricks, moved and stunts in the Disney on Ice shows touring around the world all year. The same goes to those incredible talents and medal winners that skated in Disney TV ice skating specials like Fantasy on Ice and Michelle Kwan skates on Disney´s Greatest Hits.

One such athlete is Russian born Ilia Kulik. In the video below he does his thing on instrumental parts from Aladdin
´s soundtrack. The YouTube user also had Ilia´s kur on the 1996 World Championshop.

My Three Dads

My favorite one of the family relationships was how Aladdin had 3 fathers. In the Marvel comics there was a story where he went back in time and unknowingly met his mother. I think her name was Xenia. I forget the dad’s name but it seems like it was something generic like Hamed, which is also Jasmine’s father’s name.

The second Aladdin father was the strangest and later covered up. In an episode of the series a villain called Mosenwrath revealed he and Aladdin were brothers and that Jafar was their father!! This segment was cut in reairings after the 3rd film was announced.

Then there is the Aladdin dad we all know from Aladdin & the King of Thieves.

I’m pretty familiar with the Mattel comics. But don’t know them all still,I should’ve heard something about that in the all the years I’m active in the community. Hamed is the founder of Agrabah and Jasmine’s ancestor in the episode “Lost and Founded.” In the cut song reprise “Arabian Nights” Howard Ashman did sing about Sultan Hamed but that song belonged in a different version of the feature film and shouldn’t be considered canon.

I did hear about the rumors Moz and Al where supposed to be brothers in a second sequel film but that idea was dropped when Robin returned to do Genie. The sibling idea did get a foothold in a fanfic or two. Conclusion, (s)he mixes up facts and makes facts up.

Hero AMV

On a daily bases at least 2 Aladdin music videos appear at YouTube. Almost all use “Aladdin” footage of Al and Jas and un-inspiring songs, enough for me to skip over them. Sometimes, like today, an AMV appears that I think is worth checking out.

The mysterious footage Evelyn asked what episode it comes from appears to originate half way “The Prophet Motive.” It is part of the scene where the good guys see Abis Mal escape on ship with kidnapped Carpet. Many thanks to Aladdin Central Messageboard.

Aladdin hero has footage from the series and a nice song by Enrique Iglesias.
