Storyboard Text

  • Ala al-Din lived in a town close to the desert, and he was a trouble maker of a boy “bad from his nose to his kneecaps.” Ala al-Din lived with his mother becuase his father had died long ago. Ala al-Din was as “lazy as a shadow of a post which lies along the ground all day.”
  • "Where is Ala al-Din's palace? Where is the roof that covers the head of my priceless daughter "
  • Ala al-Din’s pretend uncle took him to a cave to fetch a small oil lamp. Because “only one by the name Ala al-din, son of Mustafa could enter.” But, when Ala al-Din came back out with the treaure he discovered that his uncle only wanted it for himself, and since Ala al-Din wouldn’t give it to him right away the black dwarf locked him in the cave.
  • "Give me the lamp you greedy swelled up bullfrog!"
  • "I wish I had never seen her. For if I cannot marry her I shall undoubtedly die!"
  • Ala al-Din soon discovers that there is an ifrit inside the lamp. And one day when he was walking in the town he saw the beautiful princess Badr al-Budr and decides he wants to marry her.
  • Ala al-Din has gone away on a hunting trip, but when he got back he discovered that his palace and his wife princess Badr al-Budr has disapered. The sultan is furrious, and Ala al-Din makes a promise to find his palace and princess in less then 3 years time.
  • Ala al-Din makes a wish using the ifrit that he discovers in the ring, and he finds the palace and Badr al-Budr, but he discovers that the black dwarf is going to keep Badr al-Budr and his palace In the deepest African jungles forever. Ala al-Din decides to trick the dwarf.
  • “I have only the magic of the slave of the ring. And that conjuror’s box which Allah calls brains, and hides in every man’s head”
  • Ala al-Din, his wife, and his palace are back safley in the town near the desert. And at the palace Ala al-Din asks the ifrit if he desires to be free, and when the ifrit responded by swallowing the lamp whole, and doing a small dance around the room he is set free.
