Aida Concept-Storyboard01 by Cor104 Aida Concept-Storyboard01 by Cor104
The reason for my recent reserch of ancient Egypt.

I was talking with :iconking-of-the-damned: the other day and we started talking about the Disney musical "AIDA" and the movie version that is supposedly in the works.

We both think it would make a good animated feature, which is why Disney originally bought the rights to a version of the story. Work was REALLY slow the other day so I sketched out some storyboards for the opening sequence on recipt paper...yeah...

I have decided that IF (big IF) there were to be an animated versin of the musical then several songs would HAVE to be cut/shortened to fit in a Disney 90-minute feature animation.

Pretend that in the 9th frame she would wave her cloak in a dramatic fashion and then her posture would become more relaxed as the more rock styled music began.

ALSO I think that the song "Every Story is a Love Story" is one of the songs that should be dramatically shortened...although I love that song.

Sorry for such a long description...congrats if you read it all!

I really hope that Disney picks it up again as a movie...
I know some people are worried about the "darker tone", but Im sure they'd lighten it a little...plus...I mean, Hunchback of Notre Dame was pretty dark and kinda violent and lets not forget the perverted song HELLFIRE! but that was still released by Disney! So I feel like they could turn Aida into an animated movie as well =)

that's nice but it should be put in touchstone since it contains darker theme not fit for children,and you should make a storyboard for the ending but this time taking place place in modern egypt possibly msueum where a woman (egypt nationalist) meets a man (mixture of american and egyptian) with Amneris giving a conclusion.

Holy. Freaking. Cow. This looks so amazingly epic, I can't even begin to describe how much I love it. I was in Aida for our school musical a few years ago, and I've loved it since then, and seeing this...you have made my night.

This would be EPIC! though I don't think it could compare to a live play, especially the one they had at Tuacahn.

Cool story board though!

Wow! :omfg: That's really cool! I wpould so watch that movie, but what is AIDA? You said it was a musical and that Disney bought the rights to it? What is the story about?
Reply
:iconcor104:
Cor104 Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2010
Thank you very much! Disney got the rights and was going to make an animated feature but they did the musical instead.

AIDA is the story of a Nubian princess (Aida) who becomes a slave in Egypt. She and Radames (and Egyptian general) fall in love, but Radames is engaged to Amneris (Princess of Egypt.) Aida's people discover who she is and wants her to be their leader and thus she is torn between her love for Radames and her love of her country. The drama that ensues...haha

This looks great! You should make more storyboards, they turn out great!

Disney owns Aida? Never knew that!

And I've always wondered what Aida was about, so, um... could you clue me in a little bit? Perhaps a short synopsis? :)

:iconcor104:
Cor104 Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2010
Thank you! I have many more ideas in my head for this!

Disney owns the rights to a storybook version of the opera, yes.

All I know about AIDA I learned mostly from wikipedia. But in a nutshell: Nubian princess becomes a slave in Egypt. Radames, and Egyptian general, falls in love with her but he is engaged to Amneris, the princess of Egypt. Aida becomes Amneris' handmaiden and they become friends. basicall one big love triangle...basically...:)

OMG was the first reaction that I had.
2nd reaction was I can't believe someone finally made an Aida storyboard version of this musical!!!
I had always wanted to make a comic for it.
And 3rd. As I was reading your comments I don't know if Disney would make it since children won't really understand it, but touchstone (also owned by Disney) could do it. Then the movie could be a bit longer then 90 min! ^_^
But I am verrrry glad that someone out there agrees with me that it should finally be made into a movie! I also think the original broadway cast should star in it to =P

Thank you! I'm glad you had a positive reaction! I'm sure that when Disney makes this movie it will be live action and it will most likely be ver close to the musical...even in length.

Thanks so much for your comments! :D

LOVE it.

Though, IMHO, this is probably the ONE song that SHOULDN'T be shortened, ahha. But, that's my idea.

Love the concept, and I can totally see that happening.

To be honest I joke with my friends that the reason Disney created "The Princess and the Frog" in order to showcase an African American princess was because Aida would not make an appropriate children's movie. :giggle: That's an excellent idea though.

I totally agree with you! Mainly becasue it has to do with slavery...

But I still can dream...

As long as Disney makes a live action movie of it I'll be happy! :)
