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
When Aladdin is led to his execution, his wrists are chained in front of him. This continues all the way to when he is kneeling over the chopping block. When Genie swoops in to save him, his hands are now tied behind his back. See more »
Give it up Jafar! We're obviously too much for you to handle!
You! You're a fool to challenge me! I am all powerful!
Some all powerful. You can't even get rid of a lowly street rat!
A problem I need to rectify right NOW!

At the end of the movie, Abis Mal says "Does this mean I don't get my third wish?" See more »
Cheap and sloppy cash-grab, lacks any of the magic of the first one. Big time.
Aladdin is my favorite Disney-movie. It took a whole lot of years from the first time I watched that one and till now, when I watched the sequel. And I'm kinda glad. Had I seen this when I was little, I might have been disappointed. Why? Well, let me tell ya!
The Return of Jafar is not even comparable to Aladdin. Aladdin (1992) is one of Disneys greatest movies. The Return of Jafar is a cheap looking typical made-for-TV animation feature. The animation is cheap. I mean, it doesn't even seem to follow Disneys own 12 principles of animation. It's shoddy, jittery and sloppy. A lot of the time the drawings are down right bad. It's very clear that the budget for this was just a fraction of the budget for Aladdin (1992).
Genies voice has been replaced with Home.. uhm, Dan Castellaneta. He did a good job, though. Besides, I actually prefer the Norwegian dub, for Aladdin, so I'm not very familiar with Williams Genie anyway.
The movie is not all bad, though. It's short, which is good. It's nice to see these characters again, cheap as they may look. The story is, well, there hardly is a story at all, really. It even has some plot holes. (not that I care) But the movie is, you know, made for kids, and gets the job done I guess. It's just very generic, and nothing like the excellent quality that is Aladdin (1992).
Just have to add: I feel so mean when I slam the animation so hard, because someone still spent hour upon hour drawing this stuff. Animation is beyond time consuming. I know, because I've done it myself. OK. Anyway, you'll find plenty other, better animations feature films than this. That's my last word!
