Storyboard Text

  • The story of Ala al-Din begins with Ala a-Din, a bad, lazy, mischievous boy, 'working as hard as the shadow of a post that lies along the ground all day'.
  • A black Dwarf shows up at Ala al-Din's house and takes him to the desert, claiming to be his uncle. The Dwarf gives Ala al-Din a ring and asks him to get a lamp in an underground tunnel, but he gets angry locks Ala al-Din in the tunnel with the oil lamp and ring. Ala al-Din accidentally rubs the lamp and realizes there is a magical ifrit inside.
  • Go down the stairs and open the stone trapdoor.
  • Ala al-Din uses the ifrit in the lamp to escape from the underground tunnel and wishes for luxurious food. He uses the ifrit's power to trick the princess Badr al-Budur's father and marries the princess. Using the ifrit, he then creates their palace of 'nine hundred and ninety nine windows.'
  • Badr al-Budur accidentally gives the ifrit lamp to the black Dwarf, who pretends to be generously exchanging new lamps for old ones. The black Dwarf uses the ifrit to capture Ala al-Din's palace and his wife Badr al-Budur and take them to his home in Africa. This makes Ala al-Din upset.
  • Marry me
  • I'd rather die than marry you!
  • As Ala al-Din washes off the tears on his face he accidentally rubs the ring the black Dwarf had given him. Surprisingly, the ifrit of the ring appears, and Ala al-Din asks the ifrit to take him to the black Dwarf.
  • I am the slave of the ring and any who holds it. What do you want, master?
  • Ala al-Din arrives at Badr al-Budur. Together they trick the Dwarf and get the lamp back. They let the Dwarf live, but make him return to his home in Africa. Ala al-Din and his wife return home, using the lamp ifrit to bring back the palace, and let the ifrit of the lamp be free.
