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.
In the kingdom of Atlantica where music is forbidden, the youngest daughter of King Triton, named Ariel, discovers her love of an underground music club and sets off to a daring adventure to bring restoration of music back to Atlantica.

Jaq and Gus create a storybook based on three events that happened after the first film. The stories include Cinderella's opposition to the court's strict etiquette, Jaq's becoming human for a day, and Anastasia's redemption through love.
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

The first idea for this storyline involved a villain from the Aladdin (1994) television series named Mozenrath. The plot would reveal that the hero and villain were brothers. However, according to one of the writers, everyone thought they should steer away from the television show. That and the fact that they couldn't get in touch with Jonathan Brandis (Mozenrath's voice), prompted writers to move on to another relative of Aladdin's - his father. See more »

Also, at the very end, Genie does a take on the infamous "Game's Over Man!" speech from 'Aliens'. 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 »
Robin Williams came back as Genie,fortunately,and most of his jokes are
hilarious.ALADDIN AND THE KING OF THIEVES is one hundred percent better than THE RETURN OF JAFAR. But then,a root canal would be better than TROJ...anyway,the story is interesting and the voices are wonderful (John Rhys-Davies is brilliant as Cassim.) My only complaints are the rather limp songs and the animation of Jasmine,who looks like she's
been deflated. Other than that,the characters are more like themselves than they were in TROJ,and Rasoul just rules. A fitting,imaginative conclusion.
