Part of His World – celebrating Howard Ashman’s life & work

Howard Ashaman’s sister, Sarah Ashman Gillespie s recently started a blog devoted to her brother the amazing lyricist, composer, producer, writer and creative genius who past away far to early now almost 21 years ago to the day. With this blog she recalls her childhood and talks with the many people Howard worked with and became friends like some of the big names at the Disney animation studio in California. One of them John Musker co-director/co-writer/co-producer  of The Little Mermaid and Aladdin anwsers 10 questions about working with Howard Ashman. So far he is on the 3th question. The second one, counting down from 10 it’s actually the 8th, he’s been asked.

“This is a tricky one. How different would Aladdin have turned out had Howard lived? Did Howard ever write a screenplay or did Linda Woolverton write the original draft?”
