This film stays very faithful to the original down to the smallest details, save for the kangaroo-rat that suddenly appears twenty minutes into the movie and subsequently follows Aladdin around, serving no purpose in the story but fulfilling the role of token animal mascot.

The screenwriter needs no introduction; Akira Miyazaki single-handedly wrote five of the classic WMT series, including Perrine and Rascal, and participated in two others. The only other name among the staff that rings a bell, though, is Yukihide Takekawa, who was responsible for the music in the magnificent and unknown Unico pilot film.

The story takes some illogical and confusing jumps at the point where Aladdin begins to court the princess, and the extravagant animation that had characterised Toei films of the 60s, when Toei had the best animators around, had become a thing of the past long before this point; but this is still an above-average film, in large part because of the screenplay that stays so faithful to the original. The character designs are slightly more western-looking than one is accustomed to seeing in anime.

First of all, let me start off by saying that this was the first anime that I have ever watched. Though at the time, I didn't know it was an anime. I think I was 5 years old when this movie came on T.V. but I wasn't home to watch it and my mom seeing a commercial earlier for an Aladdin movie on T.V., she decided to record it. Unfortunately, the VHS that she had, only had room for about 30 minutes of taping. Even though I had only watched 30 minutes of this movie, the images would always stay in my mind.

The movie was ...

Here's a classic anime movie from the early 80s. I remember it was aired and dubbed in Arabic on TV back in the day, though I haven't watched all of it at the time but I was absolutely mesmerized by its aesthetic, this kind of stuff deeply resonate with me, I could watch the most incompetent sketch of a story if it had vibrant and unique visuals.

This is a simple structure and we welcome it as so, there's barely anything innovative even within that rich vein of literature, but it's done so well and pleasing you let yourself into it. Except the visuals, where it's ...

Up nest for this year's film festival week, we have a film from 1982 based on the story of Aladdin. For you youngsters out there, this has nothing to do with the Disney version aside from the fact that they both drew inspiration from the same public domain story. In fact, this came out a decade before Disney's version. You see, Disney loves to base their films off of public domain stories while hypocritically fucking over the concept of the public domain. But that's a conversation for another time. Let's jump into Toei's version of Aladdin.


Aladdin is a poor beggar boy who, along with ...
