In the forum at Blu-Ray.com is a thread that puts side by side screenshots of the DVD, scaled up DVD and BD of Disney classics.
Check the difference in sharpness and clarity between the 2004 DVD and the recently released European DB of Aladdin. I would say a difference between day and night. Wow! Unfourtnelty for the US fans it seems they’ll have to wait until 2015 when an BD American release in scheduled.
I recall seeing individual storyboards somewhere but this is the first time I’ve the complete A Whole New World sequence in storyboard. Shame there’s no date listed I would’ve loved to know when and who story boarded this.
There very talented young performers from the Artsylum Quarte, piano, violin and bass, preform a wonderful rendition of Arabian Nights, A Friend Like Me, Prince Ali and A Whole New World. The latter was really amazing to listen and enjoy the beautiful composition by Alan Menken. Shame about the background noises though. Also listen to their The Little Mermaid medley, Pocahontas and Mulan preforms at their Youtube account.
ThespianPeacock uploaded 20 songs from Aladdin The New Stage Musical that ran almost 2 years ago at Seattle’s 5th adventure theater from July, 7 to 21 2011. I’ve been waiting forever to hear the songs and except for some promotion videos there was nothing. Tonight I looked for more information on the Toronto pre-Broadway run of the show’s upgrade I came across this. Listen to how the classic Alan Menken/Howard Ashman songs are converted from animated movie musical to stage musical. And I’ve been dying to know the “cut songs” Babkak, Omar, Aladdin and Cassim, High Adventure, the Jafar song Why Me preformed by Jonathan Freeman, the Princess Jasmine Call Me A Princess and especially the beautiful Proud of Your Boy would sound preformed by professional singers backed up by a orchestra instead of a composer/lyricist pinging on a piano. Plus the new Aladdin Jasmine duet A Million Mile Away taking place at Aladdin’s hovel when the two first met.
