Storyline

he travels to Aladdin's village, identified as being near the border with China, where he enlists Aladdin's help by pretending to be his long-lost uncle and offering to leave his wealth to Aladdin. At one point, the Magician character tells the story of his travels to China, India and Persia and we see a montage of these adventures and it's kind of interesting because of the way it invokes other cultures of the era. There is some unnecessary padding throughout as characters break into songs that do nothing but tell parts of Once upon a time, somewhere in Africa, a local magician dreamed of owning the Magic Lamp. Thanks to a Magic Ball he learned that the Lamp could be found in an Asian village and that only the innocent hand of a young person could snatch it. He traveled to the place, a village called "Three Hill City", close to the Chinese border. There lived Aladin, a boy who could help him to grab the Lamp. Which he did. But what was not planned is that Aladin kept the Lamp for ... Written by Guy Bellinger

A colorful, beautifully animated Aladdin
1 July 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I had gotten curious after seeing clips on YouTube. So I had ordered this film version of Aladdin and the Magic Lamp and I love it. I find animation from underrated French animator Jean Image is almost U.P.A-ish. Now, this film stays true to the original Arabian Nights tale and I found it colorful, beautifully animated and with a musical wonderful soundtrack. I love it when Aladdin serenades to the princess; other then that, I have no other favorite scenes because I love this film from beginning to end.

You know, I had watched a few versions of Aladdin and it was hard to choose which version is the best. So I would say that this version and the Japanese anime version that was made 12 years later are the best versions. So overall, I like I said I love this movie.
