Storyboard Text

  • Ala al-Din is a selfish young man who barely cares about anybody but himself. He leaves his mother to do all the work, and wants everything for himself.
  • Ala al-Din <-----
  • A black dwarf appears and tricks Ala al-Din into getting something for him, a magical lamp. Ala al-Din can't give it, so he closes the door and the dwarf locks him in.
  • You ignorant worm! You shall not come out of here alive!
  • Ala al-Din escapes and summons an ifrit that makes a meal fit for a king. He sells the plates. He then sees the princess and falls in love. He sends tons of gifts everyday, and they marry. He builds a palace with 999 windows using the ifrit of the lamp.
  • I shall marry her! Whatever the cost!
  • The black dwarf gets control of the lamp and steals the palace with 999 windows with Ala al-Din's wife in it while Ala al-Din was hunting. Ala al-Din sets out to find her.
  • Ala al-Din finds her and saves her using some of the ifrit's sleeping powder. He regains the lamp and the most powerful ifrit of them all, the one in the lamp.
  • Ala al-Din releases the most powerful ifrit in the world as the punishment for the dwarf. He sends him all the way back to Africa. Ala al-Din and his wife are safe!
