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.
Over at the Aladdin community Agrabah at LJ links to early storyboard sequences of A Whole New World, other storyboards, early character designs where posted by PrinceAli. Storyboard artist Francis Glebas boarded AWNW below.
Jim Hill’s regular animation veteran Floyd Norman gives us an interesting insight in the time it takes to develop an idea into a workable script or decent storyboards. I know that it took many people to contribute story ideas before Aladdin became the story that we saw in the finished film. First pitched by Howard Ashman then later re-wrote by Beauty and the Beast writer Linda Wolverton before the final screenplay took shape by the hands of Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio and the producers/directors Ron & John.
