This is the first desktop wallpaper based on Aladdin promotional artwork from a Japanese Aladdin Movie Program booklet I purchased in August 2007.
The image shows the Sphinx Aladdin and Jasmine pass by on Carpet during the A Whole New World scene. Notice the sculptor fine-tuning the nose of the magisicent statue. Set the wallpaper as your desktop by clicking on the thumbnail to load the full screen version then right click and choose Set as background . We have a 1024 by 768 pixel version and a 1280 by 1024 version for your pleasure.
That Japanese movie program booklet I mentioned before just arrived in the mail yesterday and while I can’t read a letter Japanese I love all the gorges promotional artwork printed in it.
Besides I don’t believe there’s anything in it that I either don’t know already or can look up in English documentary. There’s an introduction, the characters & voice cast, story pages and a production note section of a page or 4. Near the end is a list with Aladdin’s staff in English and Japanese. The last two pages are ads for
It’s the same high resolution artwork used in other promotional material such as a series of litho’s from France (photo) and a set of 16 lobby cards from Germany. I happen to have that litho set since well forever I think.
As you can imagine I’ve been busy scanning the best of the best the moment I laid eyes on it. There are 2 double full pages in it plus some page with 2 big images on it.
The rest of the 28 – page booklet is filled with smaller 10 x 8 cm, 5 x 3, 9.5 x 6, 9 x 5,7 and tiny 5 x 5 centimeter images. And then there are small photos of Aladdin’s directors, background lead, music & lyrics, the lead animators except Mark Henn plus the voice cast including the singing voices.
Expect wallpapers and perhaps a coloring page (or two) in the near future. I also want to upload the 8 largest pictures in high-resolution later this year.
For starters here is a wallpaper based on the Sphinx image
