Over at the LiveJournal community Agrabah arielstreasures shared unique sketches of Princess Jasmine she scanned from a French making of Disney heroines back she got from her libary. Fans of Meg and Belle should keep an eye out, arielstreasures hopes to scan their sketches too.
The drawings show Jasmine using her body and looks to get what she wants. First the scene on her balcony she makes a move to the unexpecting Aladdin preteding to be impressed by his babble. And later she comes on to Jafar to disctact him.

Did you know a Rajah Christmas Ornament existed? I didn’t either and now it’s mine (in two days I hope). It’s Christmas Eve and I realized I haven’t expended my Aladdin ornament collection in 2009. I have a few Kot wedding ornaments, the genie bee one, the genie lamp Santa hat one, the cute Jasmine with Rajah on carpet ornament and a Magic Carpet ride ornament. Back in ’07 I said to myself to finally start a Christmas Aladdin ornament collection, something I’ve been meaning to do for a decade or so and then to slowly expend it each year.
The seller doesn’t say much about the figure other then it’s measures but things like when it was made or who made it is nowhere to be found, can anyone help me out?
I see he/she sells a few genie and Aladdin ornaments and even the Sultan and Jafar as ornaments. Plus lots of other classic Disney characters and iconic characters from Pixar like Buzz and Woody and about every movie that followed.
As you might know in an earlier script the peddler would reveal himself to be genie. A demo of Arabian Nights Reprise ended up on Music Behind the Magic, a four cd box with music and songs from The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin. This set included Proud of Your Boy and various other songs that didn’t make it to final film like Humiliate the Boy and Count on Me all three where on the special edition DVD. A missed opportunity was to include this song with storyboards.
The creators of Aladdin and the King of Thieves, the third and last Aladdin film in where Aladdin meets his long last father Cassim and finally marries Jasmine, liked the song so much they used at the end of the film. This and the marriage scene made me often feel a bit down when I thought that there would be no more Aladdin after this. Al and co made a few cameo appearances and Jasmine got her own little film but it’s not the same.
