A storyboard of the story Ala al-Din from 1001 Arabian Nights.
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!
