The kingdom of Atlantica where music is forbidden, the youngest daughter of King Triton, named Ariel, discovers her love to an underground music club and sets off to a daring adventure to bring restoration of music back to Atlantica.
Samuel E. Wright,
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
Genie's laugh when being a jack in the box as a joke played on Iago was a joke taken on the way Krusty the Clown's laugh sounded in The Simpsons (1989). Krusty the Clown was also voiced by Dan Castellaneta. See more »
When Aladdin takes Iago to the palace to get him a fair trail, Aladdin locks the cage he puts Iago into with a key. Later on, when Iago is shouting at Abu to open the cage, for him, the cage now no longer has the lock on it from earlier, enabling Abu to open the cage for him. See more »
Rule number one in movie viewing friends: never, ever expect a sequel to be better that the original. because it usually isn't. The Return of Jafar is no where near as good as Aladdin, but it is still generally good. This really wasn't even supposed to be a sequel. It was supposed to be the first five episodes of the animated series, thus explaining the change in animation. The story is fairly good and the movie has some good songs. And in defense of Dan Castellaneta, he does a good job as the Genie and sounds sort of like Robin Williams. Don't judge him just because of Williams' performance. It was not as good as Aladdin, but why would you expect it to be?
