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
Originally, Jafar was going to turn into a giant cobra snake like in the first Aladdin (1992), but the idea was scrapped, since the producers wanted a different sort of showdown. See more »
When Aladdin and Jasmine make up in the palace garden (during Iago's song "Forget About Love"), Aladdin is wearing his "Ali Ababwa" prince clothes. When the we return to them after a scene with Jafar and Abis Mal, Aladdin and Jasmine are still in the palace garden, but Aladdin is suddenly wearing his "streetrat" clothes. See more »
Disney has a reputation of doing bad sequels. And for the most part they are but this movie is an exception. It's actually pretty entertaining but the flaw of the movie is the absence of Robin Williams. "Homer Simpson" does a good job providing the voice but he isn't Robin Williams.
