A Worthwhile Sequel
6 March 2000 | by GEM-20See all my reviews

I enjoyed this sequel to "Aladdin". Another of Disney's direct-to-video releases, the movie features decent animation, a good story, and music that is pretty good.

In the story, Aladdin goes in search of his father. Upon discovering him, he finds that his dad is the leader of a gang of thieves.

I enjoyed the movie and it was nice to see (or hear) Robin Williams providing the voice of Genie again. "King Of Thieves" is a great improvement over "Return Of Jafar."

In the original "Aladdin", the animation of the flying carpet was computer generated. Here, it is done with conventional animation. There did not appear to be any extensive computer animation in "King Of Thieves."

Still, I thought that was okay. This is a made-for-video picture, and obviously it would have been made on a much smaller budget. This was a movie that was meant to be seen on television screens.

I relish that Disney has made some fine direct-to-video sequels. Most are pretty good. "King Of Thieves" is worthwhile. Disney's first made-for-video picture was "The Return Of Jafar" (the first "Aladdin" sequel). "Lion King II - Simba's Pride", and "Pocahontas II - Journey To A New World" are others. I recommend all of them.

Give Disney some credit. These are great additions to my Disney Library.
