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

Good
16 June 2010 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I am very pleased with this movie. It takes daring turns and it has a charm. Not to mention a pretty cool and dramatic opening. Iago turning good was kinda hilarious, since he is so greedy. And Jafar as the more powerful red Genie was pretty awesome as well. Very well executed. Too bad it wasn't on cinema with a higher budget, though. But regardless, I love it. By the way; another reviewer here named Mary (can probably see her the first review that appears on this article) stated a false fact, embarrassingly enough. She said "It's actually one of my favorite sequels, and not to mention Disney's very FIRST sequel." ... ever heard of The Rescuers Down Under, you schmuck?!
