The introduction . . .
Peddlar: "Welcome to Agrabah. City of mystery, of enchantment, and the finestmerchandisethissideoftheriver . . ." *breaks off laughing* "Sorry, sorry, let's try that again."
One Jump Ahead . . .
How many times do you think they had to shoot the "One Step Ahead" scene before they could get all the way through it without a flub? I can picture the scene with Al sliding down the rope. The woman slams the shutters closed. Al smashes through them and lands on the woman.
Woman: "You're supposed to do the romantic scene with the GIRL!"
And another Al one. The last seconds of One Jump Ahead the guards don't fall in the fertilizer car but next to it. Would explain why the movie took so long to make. ;) Say I wonder if they took a bath afterwards. Eew! lol
They fall in it and one of them screams, "I thought this was supposed to be mud, not actual fertilizer!"
In the marketplace . . .
How about one when Aladdin offers his hand to Jasmine and asks: "Do you trust me?" And then she says "Yes." and when Aladdin is about to say "Then jump!" Jasmine steps back and says something like: "Wait, wait, are you sure the firemen are down there to catch us?!!"
Or Aladdin trying to get that apple trick right...
"So, where're you from?" And the apple hits the floor.
"Oops... let's try it again... one more time..."
"So, where're you fr--" (the apple goes down again)
"Gee, I was practicing this the whole night!"
"One more time..."
And after a lot of takes he *finally* gets the trick right... and Jasmine just stares at the apple and the apple hits the floor.
Muskers: "No, no, no! Jasmine, you are supposed to CATCH the apple!"
Jasmine: "Oh, sorry... can we do it again?" :P
Aladdin: *helplessly* "Oh... no!"
Or when Aladdin is supposed to catch Jasmine in that rooftop scene and he doesn't. Jasmine falls to the ground.
Jas: "Ouch! You were supposed to catch me!"
Al: "Um--- sorry.... let's do it again!" :P
And when they enter the hovel Jasmine hits her head with those beams, that's why in take two Aladdin has to warn her about the head. :P
How about before that, when Aladdin is watching Jasmine in the market? He moves off his mark and falls through the awning into the fruit stand.
Aladdin: "Ow! Who decided to use plaster fruit, anyway?"
Fruit seller: "Sorry, but real fruit rots too fast under the camera lights."
Jasmine: "I don't like this. A big guy is aiming a knife at my wrist and we're expecting Mister-Fall-Through-the-Awning here to stop it in time?"
Aladdin: "YOU try moving around on these awnings! They're not exactly built to code, you know!"
(Aladdin) "Watch your head, oh watch it"
(Jasmine) "Why don't they just clean this dump up?"
Jasmine at the fountain . . .
Jasmine's crying. Rajah comes up and taps her with his nose. She starts and shrieks, "Don't DO that!"
"The guards just took a boy from the marketplace . . ."
When Jasmine confronts Jafar in his chambers, Iago's stuck in the doorway,
and Jafar is supposed to inconspicuously kick him with his foot, he misses,
stubs his toe, and falls over. Jasmine starts laughing hysterically.
The Cave of Wonders . . .
Genie: Uno dos... what comes after dos?
Director: Tres, it's no wonder you failed French class.
Producer: Uno dos tres is Spanish though.
Director: Not on my set you're fired.
Producer: You can't fire me, (grabs Ali's cape, looking regal) I'm the producer.
Director: Just go to your trailer and get the monkeys stand in.
Director: Last try guys. Action.
Genie: 10 years gives you such a crick in the neck!
Aladdin: Uh Genie it's 10000 years.
Genie: Oops sorry.
Director: Okay, okay we try again. Genie back in the lamp. Everyone back to their post. Special effects ready?
FX man: Ready Mr Clements.
Man with clapper thing: Genie intro take 2
Director: Okay and action!
Genie: 10000 years gives you a sleeping leg.
Director: No, no, no! It's crick in the neck. God I wish we used Steve Martin for the voice.
Williams steps out: Hey I can't help it I have a black out today.
Director: Okay nevermind we try again.
Wiliams get back in the recording room.
Man with clapper thing: Genie intro take 3
Director: And action!
Genie: 10000 years gives you such a crick in the neck!
Director: Alright! Wonderful only 3 takes. You're getting better Robin.
Williams: Gee, thanks Ronnie. (gives him a hug)
Genie: "Can your friends do this?"
(Genie starts juggling his head and drops it. It rolls off the set.)
Al: "No, but apparently you can't either!"
(Crew laughs in background.)
Genie: "Hey, *you* try juggling your own head and let's see how accurate *you* are!"
Aladdin is falling towards the molten lava. Carpet comes swooping to the
rescue... and misses. Aladdin falls with a splash into the "molten lava,"
which is really orange jello.
Aladdin: "Thanks a lot!"
Carpet comes down to pull him out and Aladdin
deliberately pulls him into
the jello, too.
The oasis . . .
Director: Okay cut, Genie baby work with me, you're supposed to say et tu brute not et tu fay (thats a cajun food (sp?)).
Genie: Oh oh sure you see how well you remember when you got a guy with a knife about to take a shot at you.
Director: Let's try this again, everyone, from the top. Action.
Enter Prince Ali . . .
"I'm Prince Ali... Abooboo?" *looking at the script guys*
"Ababwa!" The director screams. "Abooboo is Jafar's line!"
Jafar: *laughs* "It's Ababwa kid, Ababwa!"
I can just hear this. Everyone says "Abooboo" for "Ababwa" EXCEPT Jafar, who is SUPPOSED to say "Abooboo!"
In the garden . . .
What about when Carpet is playing Chess with Genie and Genie turns his
head; and Carpet moved the pieces around <EG>.
The magic carpet ride . . .
Can you imagine the scene when they ride Carpet through the orchard?
Aladdin: "Oh, no, not the apple trick again!"
Jasmine: "Don't worry, I'll catch the apple this time, promise."
Trick works, Jasmine catches the apple, then Aladdin falls off Carpet into the water.
Aladdin: "Why does it have to be apples?"
(Al) "Next time I promise I won't hit you in the head."
(Jas) "Yeah thats what you said last time about my leg and you hit my head. What's next?"
Al tries again, and hits Jas in the arm, "Ow okay how 'bout you just pick it and hand it over don't throw it, I'm tired of making apple sauce with my head, knees, and arms okay"
(Al) "Sorry I didn't mean to."
On the balcony . . .
Jas: "Goodnight, my handsome prince!"
Al: "Sleep well, Princess."
And when they stare at each other they just... start to laugh. *LOL* :P
Director: "You're supposed to KISS, not to LAUGH!"
Al/Jas: "Sorry... sorry!" :P
Another boo-boo: Carpet pushes Aladdin up for his kiss, but pushes a little TOO hard and instead of their lips meeting in a kiss, Aladdin tumbles over the balcony and knocks Jasmine over. They disappear behind the balcony railing, then you hear Jasmine say: "I thought we were going for a 'G' rating?"
Aladdin gets pushed over too hard and hits Jasmine knocking the two of them behind the pillar, "Al this is a G rated movie not R okay so just tell Carpet there to be more careful about this."
Or, after the romantic Magic Carpet Ride, Jasmine steps off onto her
balcony and you can see that the backside of her harem pants is covered with
Jasmine says, "Oh, go jump off a balcony!"
When Aladdin jumps off, there's no rug and he falls onto the padding five feet below (remember, they're acting on a set), and he yells, "Hey! Where's the carpet? Where's the director? I need to have a word with him." The director walks over, and it's Mozenrath.
"Oh, so sorry, Aladdin. I guess we'll have to do that scene over again." He smiles evilly.
"Make sure he's never found . . ."
How bout where Al is in the ocean, they are taping
him and the plastic around the camera or whatever is keeping the water out breaks: "Darn it."
Jafar's Hour/The Battle . . .
Oh what about when Jas kisses Jafar. They had to repeat the scene like 1000 times because Jas would be stopping just before the kiss.
Jas: "Gee... do I *REALLY* have to kiss him?"
Jaffy: "What's wrong with that? I even brushed my teeth and all!"
Jas: "Ew! Do I have to hear that?!! Why no one interrupts when I have to kiss HIM but everybody
is always interrupting when I'm supposed to kiss Aladdin? Just not fair! Who are the writers of this anyway?"
Or when Jasmine is trying to trick Jafar while Al gets the lamp.
"And your beard is soo....it's got something hanging off it."
"Man, it's that cole slaw again."
Or when Genie finds Al hiding in Jafar's palace.
"Al? AL! Little buddy!"
*Mumbles then tries to unzip...struggles with the zipper...Fights with the zipper.* *LOL*
(Jas) "Oh bugger.... his teeth are yellow, come on guys give me a break his teeth have things crawling on them and his breath let's not get into that, I'm supposed to kiss him not pass out on him."
(Jafar) "MY teeth Yellow exactly my plan to make you pass out mwahhhhhhh(evil laughter)"
(Jas) "The director said cut so cut out that awful screech of a laugh already or else I'll...I'llll... Oh I don't know what I'll do but I'll do something drastic"
(Jafar) (Frowns) "Fine I'll shut up already.
Or a retake
Jas is about to kiss Jafar, she looks at the directors, "Come on kids are going to be watching this they shouldn't see me kissing an old man they might get ideas besides I'd rather kiss Al okay"
(Jafar) "Old man, Old man, Try old sorcerer, and what does Al have that I don't anyway."
(Jas) "Let me think this should be really hard, um hair, clean teeth, no facial hair, brains, charming smile, a genie, a magic carpet a cute monkey, and he isn't you."
Hm, how about this: Actor Jafar is nothing like Character Jafar and when Jasmine has to kiss him, she actually likes it?
Aladdin: "Hey, you aren't supposed to turn this into a kissing marathon!"
Jasmine, breaking away: "At least HE doesn't have fleas!"
(Al runs to the hourglass with the plank to break the glass.)
(It doesn't break.)
(Doesn't break again. Offstage the crew starts
(The plank finally snaps in two. Al looks at the
crew with an annoyed look.)
Al: "Okay, WHO did WHAT to this?!"
Now I can imagine Jasmine coming out of the hourglass coughing and all.
Jas: *coughs* "You are MEAN! I was dying in there! Hey, maybe we could use Sadira as my stunt after all."
(Al's voice in the background)
"And Mozenrath as mine!" ;)
Jasmine: "Is it too late for me to agree to marry Jaf..." as the sand rises over her head.
The happy ending . . .
Sultan: "A kitten I can handle. But a tiger? How am I supposed to hold a tiger? I could have a heart attack! Don't you have any respect for seniors?"
The Secret of Dagger Rock . . .
Jas looks at Moz, "I always get my man" and Moz says his lines Jas glares at him. Carpet dives down and Moz gets ready to zap her, Jas jumps off as planned but accidentally lands in Moz's arms.
"OOPS!" she says.
"Yeah oops your man is over there I'm not your man if there wasn't a need for you in this show I would blast you right now" looks really steamed.
"Duh I know who my man is and for your information if you weren't needed in this scene I'd have Genie strap a bone on you and ham and other meat and stick you in a cage with a bunch of hungry Jackles, got it?" Jas glares at him even more.
When Aladdin asks, "Sure, and how many parties do you get invited to?", Mozenrath replies casually, "Actually, Aladdin, after we're done with filming this scene, I'm going to a party, and guess who my date is?"
Or wouldn't it be neat to think of the characters as actors, and in reality, Al and Moze are like, best friends? Weird, huh?
Behind the Scenes
Director: Somebody find that monkey I think he ran off with the plastic ruby prop from the Cave of Wonders again. And keep that elephant out of my lunch he keeps eating my peanut butter sandwiches. Speaking of witch, Sadira I told you honey we don't use you until the series in May okay. Why don't you go and visit the taping of HoND Esmeralda's a little lonely up there in the tower.
Now that I think about Sadira, maybe she could be complaining to the producers:
Sadira: "But I don't want to be in this movie and I don't want to be in the TV series. I have my own idea for a movie. I call it the 'Sand Witch Project.'"
Jasmine: "I can't kiss him."
Director: "We reached that point, Jasmine. You have to kiss Al."
Jasmine: "But he's got a cold sore on his lips..."
Director: "We got make-up taking care of that.."
Jasmine: "Alright, then why do my fingers tingle every time I touch his hair?!"
Mozenrath joins Sadira at Muskers chair.
Mozenrath: "Hey I too want a part in this movie"
Jafar just shot a scene on his way to his trailer he hears the talk.
Jafar: "Sorry kid I'm the villain of this movie. But don't worry I'll leave at
the end so I'm sure they have a role for you in the series."
Mozenrath says something not understandable.
Sadira: "And why does Jasmine gets Aladdin
Jasmine on her way to the rooftop scene hears
Jas: "Maybe because I have the princess role?"
Muskers: "Ladies and gentlemen please calm down. I'm sure we'll find a road
through the middle."
Jas: "Oh well later Mozey and Sandy I have a
scene to shoot."
At the scene. Aladdin to Jasmine -
Aladdin: "You're late princess come quickly."
Jasmne: "Yeah I'll tell you later."
Clements: "Everyone ready? And action!"
Mozenrath to Sadira -
Mozey: "Oh well come on Sadira I buy you a cup
Sadira: "Thanks Mozenrath."
They leave hearing the scene playing behind them -
Jasmine: "Not that strange" (smiles leads on
Genie standing at the side line near the
Genie: "Sniff it's sooo romantic."
Clements: "Hold on Genie save the tears for the second sequel okay?"
Rajah: "How come I don't have any dialog? Lots of other Disney movies
have talking animals!"
Carpet: "And Beauty and the Beast had talking furniture, but I don't have
any lines, either. It's a budget thing. If we have any dialog, they'll have
to pay us more money!"
Rajah: "I see. Speaking of Beauty and the Beast, I notice that your scene was cut."
Carpet sighs: "Yeah." *sighs again* "That's show biz!"
