To celebrate the release of the new live version of Disney’s Aladdin, Disneyland Paris has created a series showing guests how to follow Aladdin’s footsteps round both Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios! The highly anticipated live action version directed by Guy Ritchie is set to be released on Wednesday.
At Disneyland Paris, Aladdin is adored by many and hold a very prominent place in both of the parks. Each park invites guests to celebrate this iconic character and join in his adventures through many attractions and shows based upon the beloved, animated classic!
Today, for following in Aladdin’s footsteps series, Disneyland Paris is focusing on ‘Flying Carpets Over Agrabah’ the attraction at Walt Disney Studios! Here guests can find the Genie shooting his own film at Toon Studios, which is one of the production areas of Walt Disney Studios Park! Genie is always a barrel of laughs and for this attraction, he is no different- with a set looking unfinished, rickety and wobbly, he even forgets to remove his lens cap from his camera! However, guests delight in becoming actors for a day
Once on the set, guests are ready to live a real “blue dream” by flying in one of the 16 flying carpets that the Genie has put at their disposal. To feel transported to the Middle East of the Arabian Nights, he set up a backdrop that was used during the Hollywood Golden Age, representing a panorama from the famous Cave to Wonders. to the enchanting city of Agrabah. Once in flight, the actors have the possibility to control the movements of their carpet according to their place: those placed at the front can act on the altitude while those placed behind master the inclination. All this under the watchful eye of the Genie, who does not stop raving about them.
Connoisseurs will recognize the voice of Richard Darbois (Buzz Lightyear) in French, while the English version is provided by Dan Castellaneta (Homer, in the Fox series The Simpsons), who assumed the role of Genie in The Return of Jafar and the animated series Disney’s Aladdin, instead of Robin Williams.
