Samuel E. Wright,
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
Due to box office failure of The Rescuers Down Under (1990) (a theatrical Disney animated sequel in 1990) The Return of Jafar (1994) was released on home video in May of 1994 instead of being released in theaters, in addition to the fact that Animated Theatrical Films would take 3-5 years to work on, compared to Direct to Video Films which take less than 2 years.

Disney has a reputation of doing bad sequels. And for the most part they are but this movie is an exception. It's actually pretty entertaining but the flaw of the movie is the absence of Robin Williams. "Homer Simpson" does a good job providing the voice but he isn't Robin Williams.
