Storyline

The sultan is grooming Aladdin as new vizier, future son-in-law and heir to the throne of Agrabah, stirring palatial unrest. Former vizier-usurper Jafar was banished to a genie lamp, but is dug up by ambitious simpleton crook Abis Mal, whom Jafar manages to manipulate his three wishes so he can regain his power and return to Agrabah for revenge. His egotistic formerly trusted parrot Iago has already managed to cash in on the palace's gratitude, but is facing conflicting loyalties when his former master reveals himself to him. Genie is finally back and must take on a magic duel against Jafar, whose dirty tricks land Aladdin and Jasmine in the dungeons. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

One of the voices Genie does in the Song "Nothing in the World" sounds like Rich Texan from The Simpsons (1989), also voiced by Dan Castellaneta. See more »

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 »

Quotes

Abis Mal, the Chief of the Thieves: [hesitating on freeing Jafar] Wait. How do I know that these things won't disappear once I set you free?
Jafar: [losing it] The more pressing question is, how will you stay alive if you don't?
Abis Mal, the Chief of the Thieves: [Nervously] But... you said genies can't kill, you said that.
Jafar: You'd be surprised what you can live through.

No Robin Williams is a bad thing!
5 October 2002 | by TheMan3051See all my reviews

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.
