Aladdin and the King of Thieves ★★ 1996

Second-direct-to-video saga (following “The Return of Jafar”) once again features Williams as the voice of the genie (after settling a dispute with Disney). On the eve of Aladdin's marriage to Jasmine, theives try to steal a magic talisman, sending Aladdin on a mission to find the thieves—and his father. Disney had such terrific success with “Return” that it was inevitable they would try again. 82m/C VHS, DVD. D: Ted Stones; W: Mark McCorkle, Robert Schooley; M: Mark Watters; V: Robin Williams, Scott Weinger, Jerry Orbach, John Rhys-Davies, Gilbert Gottfried, Linda Larkin, CCH Pounder, Frank Welker.
