FRANCE | Here is a clip from Aladdin and the Marvellous Lamp (Aladin et la Lampe Merveilleuse) a 1970 French animated film directed by Jean Image.

It is loosely based on the Arabian Nights tale of Aladdin. In the clip magician Abanazar tricks the boy Aladdin into doing his bidding to obtain the magical lamp.

Made by Jean Image’s fifty-artist crew on a limited schedule in 1969 (from April to November of that year), the film proved successful with children.
