Julie's animated film debut
19 November 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Like I said, animation is an art form, and in a few countries in the world, there are some excellent animation. In this beautifully animated film, the beautiful princess Zelia is betrothed to the cruel sheik Jafar, thanks to the power of a magic ring given from his sorcerer. And so, her minstrel/friend Armin uses Aladdin's lamp to rescue her.

Julie Andrews (and in her film debut too), supplies the voice of Zelia in the film. The film was originally made in Italy in 1949 and later released in an English-language version around 1967; my very first glimpse of Italian animation was the TV series Winx Club. The influence of Disney's Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs is clearly evident, in the general look, the plot and the characters.

As I said I am starting to love fantasy movies (animated or live action) set in Arabia. My favorite characters from the film are Calina, Armin's little magpie; I love the princess herself too. You know, not many discuss the Non-Disney Princesses, and I have added Zelia to the list I had made of The Non-Disney Princesses :

· Glory from Gulliver's Travels, · Odette from The Swan Princess, · Thumbelina from Don Bluth's version of the story, · YumYum from The Thief and The Cobbler, · Anastasia, and... · Kayley from Quest for Camelot.
