Review

Our Score
This adequate but unexceptional follow-up to Disney's Aladdin bypassed cinemas and went straight to video, in line with what now seems to be usual company policy. Most of the original's voice cast returns as Aladdin does battle with evil sorcerer Jafar, but a notable absentee is genie Robin Williams, whose anarchic vocals are sorely missed despite his replacement being Dan Castellaneta (the voice of Homer Simpson in The Simpsons). It's fine for children, though grown-ups will find less to chuckle at than they did the first time round.

Summary

Animated adventure sequel to Disney movie Aladdin. Iago unwittingly frees evil Jafar from the genie's lamp, leaving the hero and his magical friend battling against the odds to save the day again. With the voices of Dan Castellaneta, Jason Alexander, Gilbert Gottfried and Scott Weinger.
