Storyline

Aladdin is adjusting to his new life as part of the upper crust. He and Princess Jasmine may not be married yet, but the pressures of palace society have already begun. On top of that, Iago (the parrot pet of Sultan's ex-vizir turned genie, Jafar) appears asking for help and no one is happy to see him. But things begin to look up when Genie returns from his trip around the world. Meanwhile, Jafar's black lamp is discovered by an idiot crook called Abis Mal. By using Abis Mal, Jafar makes his way back to Agrabah with ideas of payback for Aladdin and his friends. Written by Max Vaughn

Goofs

During the song 'Nothing In The World', Genie tells Aladdin and Jasmine about his travels around the world. He mentions being at the pyramids at Giza in Egypt, but then in the same part the three are shown at the Temple of Ramesses II at Abu Simbel with the pyramids in the background, even though Giza is in the north of Egypt, while Abu Simbel is almost as far south as it's possible to go in Egypt. However, what we see is clearly not an actual location, but Genie's "virtual reality" where anything is possible. After all, the statues at Abu Simbel have Aladdin's and Jasmine's faces, indicating that it's all not exactly real. See more »

Not as good as Aladdin, but who cares?
27 September 2000 | by (Ardmore, PA) – See all my reviews

Rule number one in movie viewing friends: never, ever expect a sequel to be better that the original. because it usually isn't. The Return of Jafar is no where near as good as Aladdin, but it is still generally good. This really wasn't even supposed to be a sequel. It was supposed to be the first five episodes of the animated series, thus explaining the change in animation. The story is fairly good and the movie has some good songs. And in defense of Dan Castellaneta, he does a good job as the Genie and sounds sort of like Robin Williams. Don't judge him just because of Williams' performance. It was not as good as Aladdin, but why would you expect it to be?
