Live Action Prequel film about Genie in the works at Disney

I sort of saw this one coming.  Disney hired a team of writers to pen a live action prequel movie based on Genie from the beloved 1992 animated film.

Called Genie the fillm is written by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift and produced by  Tripp Vinson. The film is said to focus on the genies and how Aladdin’s genie came trapped inside the lamp. If succesful a out right remake of the Aladddin film itself is an option. Personally I’m not excted at this sequal/prequel or remakes of classic 2d animated films. I rather see Disney to make new fresh films be either live action or (2d) animated.

How to Draw Aladdin Characters

After watching Aaron Blaise’s drawing Rajah video the other day I looked around Youtube to see if there where more videos. Everyone’s favorite video site has quite a few videos of people drawing Aladdin characters. I picked the ones that resembled as close to the movie versions as possible and not the artists own interpretation of the character. And yes that contradicts with what Aaron did on his video but I personally believe these characters should look on model as much as possible.

I also enjoyed watching DrawingNow doing an Al/Jas close up.
DrawingTogether1’s channel has a really nice Jasmine in red drawing. Notice Jasmine has a more Disney Princess-y outfit.
And finally BTSPRO does a drawing of my favorite Jasmine close-up.

I could post more videos but that would make this post way to long. If you want to watch more videos on How To Draw Aladdin Characters search YouTube with these keywords for more examples.

Aladdin Music Medley on piano

I’ve been listing to a >3 hour Disney Piano Medley on the YouTube channel of “kno Disney Piano Channel” these past days. Of course such a medley includes lovely and relaxing renditions of Aladdin’s music. In the first half an hour A Whole New World, Arabian Nights and One Jump Ahead can be heard plus Howard Ashman‘s beautiful Proud of Your Boy. The latter can be listened to in a separate video on kno’s YT channel.
