On This Day: Aladdin

November 25, 1992 the GREATEST Disney classic was born and became the highest grossing movie of the year! So to celebrate Aladdin’s anniversary lets talk some awesome fun facts!

1. John Candy, Steve Martin, Eddie Murphy, Martin Short, John Goodman and Albert Brooks at one point considered at one pont to provid the voice of the Genie.

2. Jafar was based on none other than the mistress of evil herself Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty). Like her he carries a staff, has a bird henchman, and transforms into a giant animal in the big showdown.

3. Joe Pesci and Danny DeVito both turned down voicing the parrot Iago, so the role went to the future Alfac spokesman Gilbert Gottfried.

4. The voice of Princess Jasmine, Linda Larkin was nearly fired and had to re-audition for the role halfway inot the film after Katenberg thought she didnt sound “regal” enough.

5. You can spot Pinocchio, The Beast, Sabastian and a hidden mickey in the film

6. Jasmine was the only Dinsey Princess to kiss a villain.

7. The peddler in the movie, was originally planned to be revealed as the genie at the end of the movie. This is why Robin Williams voiced him and also why the peddler share common apperences.

8. Aladdin was the first movie with its own dedicated parade in MGM Studios (Hollywood Studios) called Aladdin’s Royal Caravan Parade, which made its debut December 1992.

9. The original story of aladdin was set in china which would make Aladdin chinese.

10. Scott Weigner, known as Steve Dj’s boyfriend in the show Full House is the voice of Aladdin.

11. Everytime Aladdin lies, his feather falls in his face.

12. The Goofy hat and Hawaiian shirt that the Genie wears at the end of the movie is a node to Robert Williams wardrobe in a short he id for the Disney/MGM Studio tour in the 80’s.

Aladdin is my second favorite Disney classsic of all time, and of course i would watch the Aladdin TV series ( 1994-1995) which Scott Weinger, Linda Larkin and Gilbert Gottfried (Aladdin, Jasmine and Iago) all returned for 85 episodes of the TV series.


On This Day: Tangled

It has been 5 years since Tangled came out November 24, 2010! This has to be one of my favorite newer Disney princess, so inorder to celebrate this amazing movie here are some fun facts! 

1. Tangled was Disney’s first animated full legnth computer-animated fairy-tale adventure. It was also Diseny’s 50th animated featue.

2. This was the first Disney “princess” film to recieve a PG rating from the MPAA. All the other “princess” films by Disney recieved a G rating.

 3. The Director of Tangled, Nathan Greno, began his Disney career as an inbetween artist for Mushu in the Disney film Mulan. Before directing Tangled he also worked on Brother Bear, Meet the Robinsons and Bolt. Nathan also voiced Lefty in Meet the Robinsons.

4. There is a family resemblance between Rapunzel and her parents. BUT unlike normal families, Rapunzel came first and her parents were designed after her. So in technicality her parents look like her.

5. Flynn was originally suppose to be names Bastian.

6. Rapunzel has 70 feet of golden hair and more  than 100,000 individual strands. A special software had to be created to simulate the movement for the hair, because no one had ever animated that much hair before.

7. 10 women from the prodution grew their hair out during the making of the film, they each cut about 10 inches off of their hair to donate to an organization that makes real-hair wigs for people who’ve lost their hair due to illness.

8. Rapunzels kingdom was inspired by Mont Saint Michel and the hidden valley was inspired by Rocamadour.


9.Grizzly River Run in Disney’s California Adventure Park was used as inspiration for the water leaks on the rickety wood dam that burst.

10. In early designs for Pascual he was purple and blue. Eventually the artists thought green was the best because it looked the best with Rapunzels hair and clothes. Also Pascual was almost a squirrel.

11. Originally the movie was suppose to be called Rapunzel, but in order to market the film to both boys and girls Disney decided to change it to Tangled.

Happy Anniversary Rapunzel, thank you for showingus the true meaning of a frying pan!

1. The Sherman brothers, Robert and Richard worked on the music for the film for 2.5 years, unaware the studio did not have the full rights to the book. 

2. In 1961, Travers finally sold the rights to Disney on the condition that she get the script approval rights.

4. David Tomlinson (Mr. Banks) also provided the voice of Mary Poppins parrot head umbrella.

10. At the end of the film, the role for Mr. Dawes Senior first appears as Navckid Keyd which is actually an anagram for Dick Van Dyke. Not only did he have the role of Bert he also played the grumpy old bank president.
