 PREMIERE OF 'THE MAKING OF ALADDIN' ON NOV. 15
 John Rhys-Davies Hosts The Half-Hour Special
 BURBANK, Calif., Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- "The Making of Aladdin" will have its world television premiere on The Disney Channel on Sunday, Nov. 15 at 5:30 p.m. (ET/PT), announced Stephen D. Fields, senior vice president of original programming for the premium cable network.
 John Rhys-Davies hosts this Disney Channel half-hour special about the creation of Walt Disney Pictures' 31st full-length animated film, "Aladdin." Through sketches and storyboards to finished sequences and interviews with key animators and voice talent, viewers learn how the movie's characters and artistic style were developed.
 "The Making of Aladdin" also focuses on the composition of the movie's five new songs and original score by four-time Academy Award- winner Alan Menken and lyrics by multi-Academy Award-winner, the late Howard Ashman, and Tony Award-winning songwriter Tim Rice.
 Interviews with the animators, such as supervising animator for Aladdin Glen Keane, help viewers understand the creation and development of the feature's characters. And a look at Disney's state-of-the-art technology helps explain the magical effects that created Aladdin's amazing carpet ride.
 Through a colorful tapestry of magic, music, adventure, romance and outrageous humor, Disney's animation team tackled one of the greatest stories ever told, ultimately creating their own uniquely entertaining version of the classic Arabian Nights fairy tale, "Aladdin and the Enchanted Lamp." Set in a mythical Arabian kingdom, "Aladdin" tells in a new and imaginative way the centuries-old story of a young boy and his magical encounter with a wish-fulfilling Genie and an evil, power-hungry vizier.
 The Disney Channel, which will celebrate its 10th anniversary in April of 1993, is a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Co.
