Aladdin, the clever hero of Agrabah, continues his adventures with the help of his fiancee Princess Jasmine, his pet monkey Abu, Magic Carpet, Iago the greedy parrot, and of course his best friend the semi-cosmic Genie.
At long last, Aladdin is about to marry the Princess Jasmine. Despite the presence and encouragement of his friends Genie, Carpet, and Abu, he is fearful and anxious. He is most worried as to what kind of father he will be, having never known his own. But when the 40 Thieves disrupt the wedding trying to steal a magical oracular talisman, Aladdin is drawn into a dangerous quest to stop the thieves...and find his long-lost father.Written by

Among the Genie's many transformations is an old, grandmotherly woman, clearly meant to be Mrs. Doubtfire, the title character played by Robin Williams in Mrs. Doubtfire (1993). The character originated as Andy Kaufman's grandmother at his famous Carnegie Hall show, and was adapted for the movie. See more »
When guests are arriving for the wedding, the Genie looks at the crowd and says, "Oh, look, there's Osiris. Oh, Osiris! Osiris, can we get a word with you?" The character that turns around is not Osiris - it is Horus, Osiris's son in Egyptian mythology. See more »

After all these years you finally have your treasure!

This thing? No. This wretched thing almost cost me the ultimate treasure. It's you son, you are my ultimate treasure. I'm just sorry it took me so long to realize it. The Hand of Midas can take its curse to the bottom the sea!

During the credits the Genie appears in different positions. See more »
On TV airings, one shot showing Genie holding a picture of Jessica Rabbit's body over Jasmine's picture was cut since the body reference of Jessica Rabbit was meant for adult audience. See more »
This was one of the better sequels. The humour was not too cheesy, hardly surprising, seeing as the excellent Robin Willams was again voicing the Genie, and the voice of Cassim did a wonderful job. The animation wasn't great, but better then the Return of Jafar by a mile. The songs were a bit limp, but were upbeat and not that often. "Welcome to the forty Thieves," was my personal favourite. The storyline was strong and we even got a touch of mythology in there! A good yarn to keep the kids quiet, and compulsive and entertaining enough for the adults. The best sequel out there.....
Jasmine looked a little dodgy on some parts of the animation, while Cassim looked better then all of them. A few old gags and scenes from the first movie were woven in, but not to such a extent that it was major clinch overload.
A enjoyable enough film, which I actually quite like.^^
