Disney's Aladdin (wikipedia link) was released in 1992.
This is a "making of" book compared to the other "art of" books released by Disney Editions for the traditional animated films like Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, etc. As such, there's a lot less art relative to the art books, but still plenty enough, including lots of set workplace photos and portraits of legendary animators.
It goes behind the scenes to look at how the animated film was produced. There are stories at all stages of production, from the story pitching, to casting, and finally to animating. The more interesting thing to read about are the stories on the animators, particularly Ron Clements, John Musker, Glen Keane among many others. They go in detail about the story, their work and how they feel about animation.
I can't believe how many actually made animation their love based on cartoons they watched when they were kids. Those cartoons really worked their magic. It's also a source of wonder to see those animators back then, and where they are today in the industry, decades later.
This book provides great insight into the process of making a traditional animation.
Thanks to Kelvin Chan for providing the book for this short review.
