The Return of Jafar (1994)
Pretty much my same thoughts. It’s a very dull film indeed. Watch the 3rd movie, “Aladdin and the King of Thieves” if you want more Aladdin adventures that are worth your time.
I don’t have much to say about this movie. The Return of Jafar was not released by Disney Animation Studios, but instead DisneyToon Studios (actually at the time it was called Disney Movietoons). This Studio is responsible for direct to video movies/sequels. Their first movie was the Ducktales movie (oh geez, remember that one!?), and now they are the ones doing all those Tinkerbell movies… yeah.
Return of Jafar was their first direct to movie sequel of a Disney canon movie. It’s actually the first three episodes of the tv show Aladdin that ran on the Disney Channel from ’94 to ’95. It was originally just going to air on TV, but after the success of the movie, they released it on video. Yes, that’s right. You can blame this movie for all those horrible horrible direct to movie sequels that ruin your memories of the original…
