Col. Nelson is on a long-term, top-secret space mission. Jeannie cannot bring him home, temporarily, to hear their son's important academic presentation without knowing exactly where he is in the first place. The general in charge of the mission won't reveal anything. Things are further complicated when Jeannie's sister, Jeannie II, reminds Sham-Ir, the head of the genies, that a genie on Earth cannot go more than 3 months without an earthly master. Sham-Ir gives Jeannie a fortnight to either find Tony or get a new master, a single male. Colonel Healey can't help, since he's now married.Written by
Barbara Eden and Bill Daily are the only two regular cast members from the original series to reprise their roles in this movie. Once again, Larry Hagman was unavailable to reprise his role of Tony Nelson, as he had just completed a 14½ season run on Dallas and was taking a vacation with his family. Although the character Tony Nelson is mentioned throughout the film, and briefly appears in the animated opening sequence, he remains unseen for the rest of the movie. See more »

This film's theme song and opening credits were recycled from its predecessor, "I Dream of Jeannie: 15 Years Later" (1985). See more »
Jeannie seems to have lost her newfound independence from the last TV sequel, as well as her reason for being with the absence of her master, who's off on an extended space mission (Larry Hagman is absent again). With the exception of the existence of Jeannie and Tony's son, none of the continuity developed for the earlier "15 Years Later" movie is followed.
The plot is contrived (Jeannie must find a temporary master while Tony is away), and there's little nostalgia value, as Jeannie and Roger are the only two characters from the original series present. If you want to see how things turned out for Jeannie and Tony after the original series ended, skip this one and seek out the earlier reunion, instead.
