Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this made-for-video sequel to Aladdin may disappoint those looking for Disney's usual feature quality, but will entertain fans eager to see the story continue. But those wishing for more of the franchise would be better served by watching Aladdin and the King of Thieves, in which Robin Williams returns as the voice of the Genie. Young ones will like the music and colorful characters, but may run behind the couch when mean old Jafar appears. A cute monkey, an obnoxious parrot, and sword-banging action should fives, sixes and sevens riveted. Okay for die-hard fans of Aladdin, but the labored plot may cause restlessness in older viewers.
