At an archaeological dig in the ancient city of Hamunaptra, an American serving in the French Foreign Legion accidentally awakens a mummy who begins to wreck havoc as he searches for the reincarnation of his long-lost love.
Many years ago, in Ancient Egypt, the Scorpion King led a menacing army, but when he sold his soul to Anubis, he was erased from history. Now he is only a myth...or is he? Rick and Evelyn O'Connell are still discovering new artifacts, along with their 8 year old son Alex. They discover the Bracelet of Anubis. But someone else is after the bracelet. High Priest Imhotep has been brought back from the dead once again and wants the bracelet, to control the Scorpion King's army. That's not the only problem. Imhotep now has Alex and with the bracelet attached to him, doesn't have long to live.Written by
Freddie Boath was a big fan of The Mummy (1999), having seen it over 30 times. He passed on the opportunity to play in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001) to participate in this movie, because The Mummy (1999) is one of his favorite films. He knows so much about the movie that he even served as sort of a consultant of the first film for this film for the other crew and cast members. He knows every line and detail of the movie. When anyone on the set of The Mummy Returns (2001) needed to know something about the first movie, they asked him. This was his first professional acting job. See more »

The end credits feature objects in the background such as embalming cloth and walls with hieroglyphics. Some of the backgrounds relate to the character. When Arnold Vosloo's and Patricia Velasquez's credits appear, a mummy is seen in the background. When The Rock's credit appears, a scorpion crawls in the background. When John Hannah's credits appear, gold statues can be seen in the background (for his obsession of all things gold). See more »
Early UK releases removed a headbutt during the Rachel Weisz/Patricia Velasquez fight scene, in order to qualify for a '12' rating. The 2008 DVD release is fully uncut. See more »
The Mummy Returns is a film that, I think, you need to see the first film of the saga because otherwise you don't understand some little details. That film is a film like Indiana Jones with the same plot and the same characters. But the kid is an exception. The cinema show us the kids like boys and girls insufferable, but Alex O'Conell is a boy that "pass more time in the museum that in house". One difference this film have respect Indiana Jone's films are the sobrenatural characters than appears like The Scorpión King or Imhotep. If you like Indiana Jones and Egyptian mithology, I recomend you that film
