The film Disney jacked for Aladdin.

The Thief and the Cobbler is quite possibly the best animated film ever made and most people still haven’t ever seen it – unless you went to school for animation, in which case you have a burned copy of this on your desk somewhere. The Thief and the Cobbler holds the record for the longest film production EVER at 31 years. Canadian animator Richard Williams (animation director of Who Framed Roger Rabbit) spent 26 years of his life trying to get his film completed only to have another company assume control of it and “finish” it without him. You can read the full story here.

Last year this cut of the film surfaced on the net. A fan, Garrett Gilchrist, actually cut this together using footage from the various versions of the film that had been released, as well as clips from an original uncut workprint. The result is a version of the film closest to Williams’ original. This is only Part 1 – you can view the entire film on youtube.

BONUS VIDEO:

Disney somehow chooses not to go with Miyazaki for Little Nemo. Here is his mind-shattering screen test. Remember this wasn’t done with computers.

(I realise both of these are old news but Yasmine commented on a previous post about her favourite animations so I figured I’d post both of these – there’s gotta be a few people who haven’t seen one or the other.)

    Hey Jeff, you’re right! Not everyone has seen everything, keep posting that classic ish. No disclaimer needed! ;D Thanks for posting this.

    Miyazaki is the effin’ god of animation, as far as I’m concerned. Speaking of which, there was another Aladdin movie, much more closer to the actual story than the Disney version. What think ye of that?

    thanks neens i will

    i dunno if i seen the one you’re talkin about Kev do you have more info?

  • Kevin Pi

    It was called “Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp.” Released in 1982, in Japan. This might be a hint of nostalgia, but I thought it was a more thoughtful film than the Disney version. It certainly is more accurate than the Disney version, that’s for sure (if you’ve ever picked up an adult’s version of 1001 Nights, you’ll know).

ultimatearttumblrlist-4

 

*Update April 28th 2016 – We are continuing to update this list, removing Tumblrs that are no longer updated very frequently, and adding more as they are submitted. Please read the text below before submitting your Tumblr for consideration! Thank you all for the help, this has become an amazing resource – let’s keep it going!

 

I am compiling an extensive list of all the art and photography Tumblrs worth following. I would love your help to make this the ultimate list! Please leave a comment below with your suggestions and I will update this list with the best suggestions.

This list will focus as much as possible on Tumblrs that survey new work by different people and credit the creators of the images. Please do not submit Tumblrs that only focus on one person’s work (ie. your own personal portfolio) or mood boards that do not make any effort to link back to the source of the work.

Please share this with friends, the more input we have the better this resource will be!
