Out of print.

From the publisher:

This book is a colorful behind-the-scenes look at one of the year's most innovative films and reveals the step-by-step process by which this groundbreaking cinematic work of art was created.

It "takes you on a rare and remarkable journey that reveals the planning, the thinking, and most of all, the imagining that went into this extraordinary film. Based on interviews with all its major collaborators, including actors, animators, directors, and special-effects experts, this book draws back the veil that so often conceals the creative process."

Aladdin was produced and directed by John Musker and Ron Clements, with animators Eric Goldberg, Andreas Deja, Glen Keane, Mark Henn, Will Finn, and Randy Cartwright, and story artists including Burny Mattinson, Roger Allers, Daan Jippes, and Sue Nichols.

This came from the library of Burny Mattinson (1935-2023), an animator, director, producer, and story artist for Walt Disney Animation Studios, from 1953 until his death in 2023. Mattinson directed Mickey's Christmas Carol and The Great Mouse Detective. He was named a Disney Legend in 2008 and was the longest serving employee of The Walt Disney Company, with a career that spanned almost 70 years. His extensive library included numerous subjects and especially large collections of books on Disney, animation, and classic comic strips.
